    Description

    Boston American League Base=Ball Club (New Jersey and Massachusetts)
    Green and black. A 1912 certificate signed by James McAleer as President. In January,1901 it was announced that the American League would expand to the East, establishing clubs in Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. Among those instrumental in starting the Boston club was Massachusetts born baseball legend Connie Mack, who personally located the site for the team's first ball park. The first manager was Charlie Collins, the Boston Nationals' great third baseman. Raids against National League teams netted a formidable team, the most notable member of which was Cy Young. On May 8, 1901 the Red Sox played their first game in Boston, defeating the Philadelphia Athletics by a score of 12-4. The club won league championships in 1903 and 1904. Among the baseball greats who have worn the Red Sox uniform are Babe Ruth and Tris Speaker.
    Early major league baseball stocks are quite scarce and always spark spirited bidding. Pen cancelled. Very Fine.
