In January 1901, it was announced that the American League would expand eastward, establishing clubs in Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington.

John I. Taylor was the owner of the Boston Red Sox from 1904 until 1911. He was the son of General Charles Taylor, a Boston Globe publisher. At some point, he co-owned the team with Jimmy McAleer, a baseball manager, and Joseph Lannin, a New York real estate tycoon.

Among those instrumental in establishing the Boston club was Massachusetts-born baseball legend Connie Mack, who personally located the site for the club's ball park, and Charles W. Somers, vice-president of the American League, who provided much of the club's original financing. The first Boston American League manager was Charlie Collins, the Boston Nationals' great third baseman, and still today considered by many to be the greatest third baseman of all time. Raids against many of the National league teams netted a formidable team, the most notable member of which was Cy Young. Young, one of the game's immortals, was in large part responsible for the early success of the team, and remains one of Boston's greatest sports heroes.

The Red Sox played their first game against the Orioles in Baltimore on April 16, 1901, losing 10 to 6. They also lost their second and third games, finally winning their fourth against the Athletics in Philadelphia on April 29 by a score of 8 to 5. On May 8, before of a standing-room-only crowd of 11,000, they played their first game in Boston, again defeating the Athletics, this time by a score of 12 to 4. After the club won the League championships in 1903 and 1904, it slipped to the bottom for many years, but recovered temporarily under the steady hand of owner John I. Tayor who guided the Red Sox to four pennants and as many world championships between 1914-18. Since that the time, the Red Sox, as with other ball clubs, has experienced numerous peaks and valleys in its record, but has always maintained a near-fanatical loyalty among the Sox' hard core fans. Among the baseball greats who have worn the Red Sox uniform are Babe Ruth, who won his first home-run crown while with the Red Sox, the incomparable center fielder Tris Speaker, Duffy Lewis, "Smokey Joe" Wood, Wally Schang, Carl Mays, and others too numerous to mention.

Early major league baseball stocks are rather scarce and this represents a fine opportunity to acquire a certificate from one of America's most famous and beloved teams with a long, rich tradition.
