Description
 
Pets.com is a perfect example of the high-flying dotcom boom and bust of the late 1990s. Pets.com began operations in 1998 with a massive marketing campaign that featured their famous sock puppet mascot and even a Super Bowl Commercial in 2000. The sock puppet was even featured in an interview in People Magazine and Good Morning America. The company went defunct in the dotcom bubble and they liquidated just two years after they began in November of 2000.

At one point, Amazon owned 54% of the company. Their rise and fall became symbolic of the dot com bubble. Their domain now points to PetSmart today.

This Pets.com Specimen Stock Certificate is a rare find and great reminder of the importance of business plans and the pitfalls of irrational exuberance.

Specimen stock certificates are certificates that were archived by printers and the company as perfect examples of the company's stock issue. Specimens can be identified by their "specimen" stamp, stamped holes spelling "specimen" or they are often issued with a serial number of zeros.
