This is a very scarce Atlanta Braves, Inc. Specimen Stock Certificate printed in 1970 during the time of Hank Aaron before he was traded to the Brewers in 1974. The Braves dates back to 1871 as the Boston Red Stockings. They are the oldest continuously operating professional sports franchise in the U.S. The Club moved to Milwaukee in 1953 before finally moving to Atlanta in 1966.

Specimen stock certificates are certificates that were archived by printers and the company as perfect examples of the company’s stock issue. Specimen’s can be identified by their “specimen” stamp, stamped holes spelling “specimen”, or they are often issued with a serial number of a series of zeros. Often, they are also issued with no serial number at all. Specimens can also represent a design that was never issued. All of these attributes make the specimen stock certificate rarer than the issued version of the share. Many enthusiasts collect specimens as a whole new category of Scripophily.
