Miami may not exactly be “to the moon,” but it’s the city Jackie Gleason called home beginning in 1964.

And now his home can be yours. TopTenRealEstateDeals.com reports the residence of The Honeymooners actor is going on the auction block, along with some Gleason memorabilia and personal belongings.

Up for bidding starting February 19, according to the site, is Gleason’s 9,250-square-foot mid-century Florida-style home on nearly an acre of country club golf course frontage, featuring five bedrooms, five baths, a screened pool deck and guest party house. If only those walls could talk.

Are you thinking, “How sweet it is!” or does the sale make you a little sad? We can’t decide, but we remember The Great One’s famous quote: “If you have it and you know you have it, then you have it. If you have it and don't know you have it, you don't have it. If you don't have it but you think you have it, then you have it.” So there you have it. Now, will you bid on stuff he had?
