Mattress Mack Hauls $10 Million Cash In WheelbarrowHouston, we have a problem.
Or rather, a $75 million problem. That's how much Jim McIngvale, the mattress mogul, had to pay up after betting on the Astros to win the 2022 World Series. And while some may see this as a foolish move, McIngvale is simply proving that he's not afraid to risk it all when it comes to big bets.
McIngvale has a long history of placing high-stakes bets on different sporting events, and this latest wager was simply another one of his marketing tools. Surrounded by jet planes at his private airstrip, McIngvale showed that the risk was worth the reward in this case.
So what does $75 million buy you? Well, it could buy you a pretty sweet private airstrip. But more importantly, it proves that when it comes to Jim McIngvale, there's no such thing as too high a risk.
