    1923 New York Yankees Stock Certificate Signed by Jacob Ruppert & Tillinghast L'Hommedieu Huston. You'll find both of the signatures appearing on this ultra-rare stock certificate on the promissory notes purchasing Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox. We all know Jake Ruppert, the Hall of Fame owner of the Yankees who steered the Big Apple's American League representative from mediocrity to supremacy. The other signature is that of Tillinghast L'Hommedieu Huston, who co-owned the team with Ruppert between 1915 and 1922. Both sign on back as well.

    In fact, this document may well represent the transitioning of sole ownership to Ruppert, as "fourteen hundred shares" represents almost half of the 3,000 available. The transaction is dated May 31, 1923, a year after Huston's reported exit, but the large number of shares and the "Ruppert Holding Corporation" recipient thereof strongly suggests this is the document that put Ruppert alone in the driver's seat.

    Document measures 8.5x11" with scattered creasing and minor staining, none causing any real distraction. Autographs rate 7/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
