Description Extended Information
The popularity of Taxi Cabs exploded in the early 1900s and competition among the largest Taxi Cab services became fierce especially in Chicago. Yellow Cab, known for its yellow taxi cabs, and Checker Cab, known for the checker pattern on their taxis, became the two dominate providers. Fighting between drivers became so fierce the owner of Checker Cab's home was firebombed. Yellow Cab, founded by John Hertz, was sold after a suspicious fire killed many of his horses. Checker Cab then purchased the remaining shares to form Yellow And Checker Cab Co, the largest Taxi Cab company in the United States.

This very rare Yellow and Checker Cab Co. Specimen Stock Certificate was from the 1920s and would most likely be from the very first issue of the combined companies of Yellow and the Checker Taxi Cab companies.
