Description

    1876 Boston Base Ball Association Stock Certificate. 1876 Boston Base Ball Association Stock Certificate. Fully executed stock certificate for Harry Wright's Boston Red Caps was issued to J.B. Billings in the amount of five shares. Billings would later serve as the club's treasurer. Though the team had existed since 1871 within the National Association, the 1876 date of issue pins this certificate to the very first season of the National League, which the Red Caps joined upon the dissolution of the former. The certificate is signed by the team's treasurer Fred Long and president N.T. Apollonio at bottom, and by Billing himself on reverse. Pin holes at left edge and storage fold lines are little distraction. Dimensions 5x8.5". A remarkable relic from the inaugural season of the modern Major Leagues.
