Showing a penchant for sports properties, oil tycoon Harry Ford Sinclair (d.1956) invested in baseball teams and thoroughbred stables. Among his numerous holdings was the offered St. Louis Browns stock certificate (EX-MT) with two compacting folds. Post-dating the “Teapot Dome” scandal this nicely preserved 9-3/4 x 8-1/2” document bears Sinclair’s (“9”) quality signature on the reverse. Recorded in the amount of five shares this certificate dated 12/10/24 also bears the endorsement of Browns president Philip DeCatesby Ball ("9") along with a team corporate seal.
