Beautifully engraved unissued Certificate from the Newark International Baseball Club printed in the 1930's or prior. This historic document was printed by the Broun Green Company of New York and has an ornate border around it with a underprint of clouds and sun rays. This is the first time we have seen this historic baseball certificate. The Bears were sold and then in 1950 the Eagles left town as well. It was not until 1999, in which baseball came back to a city that was screaming for its return for almost 50 years. The Newark Bears: The Newark Indians became the Newark Bears after New York Yankees owner Colonel Jacob Ruppert bought the team in 1931. The team became the Yanks' triple-A affiliate. A number of great players came up through the Yankees' system by way of Newark. The great Yogi Berra himself played for the Bears in 1946, when he smashed 15 home runs, hit .314, and drove home 59 runs. The 1937 Bears' team was recently named the greatest minor league team ever by Baseball America, after winning the International League pennant by 25 games and winning the 1937 Little World Series. 1902 Newark Indians baseball team is formed. They are the first entry to the Class-AAA International League 1912 Charlie Ebbetts, Sr., owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers, buys the Indians. 1913 Indians win the International League pennant 1916 The Indians win the International League pennant. 1926 Davids Stadium opens in Newark.
