American League Professional Football Team of Boston, Inc. (MA), 1961 Stock Certificate Issued / CancelledCondition: Extremely Fine ( EF )Refer to the many photos which exhibit the exceptional condition of this New England Patriots memorobilia.When business executive William "Billy” Sullivan was awarded the eighth and final franchise of the developing American Football League (AFL) in 1959, he adopted the team name "Boston Patriots" (under the incorporated name of “American League Professional Football Team of Boston, Inc.” ) The team' name "Boston Patriots" stood until 1971 (one year after the team was absorbed into the NFL). Once relocated from their Boston-based facility and into a new stadium in Foxborough, MA, the team was renamed the “Bay State Patriots”. A month later, the NFL rejected the new name (pointing out to Patriots management that the name would be abbreviated B.S. Patriots). The team was subsequently renamed the “New England Patriots”, underscoring the team's importance to the region as a whole. The “Pat Patriot” team logo was used from 1961 to 1992. . . . . . . . . .Our grading follows PASS-CO standards for stocks and bonds; we err conservatively in our grading. . . . . . . . . . .All paper artifacts are individually stored in an acid-free sleeve (as illustrated).
