New Orleans, Louisiana. 1 Share I/U Capitol Stock Certificate. Black print with black and gold border and under print. Eagle at top center. S/N 2213. VF to XF condition. Rare Louisiana Baseball Stock Certificate. The New Orleans Pelicans or "Pels" were a minor league professional baseball team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Founded in 1865 as an amateur social/sporting organization, the Pelicans became a professional franchise when they joined the Southern League in 1887. That league operated off and on until it finally folded in 1899. During that time the team captured three pennants: 1887, 1889, and 1896. The Pelicans then became a founding member of the Southern Association in 1901. From 1887 to 1900, the team played at Sportsman's Park/Crescent City Base Ball Park located at the foot of Canal Street near the New Basin Canal (now the Pontchartrain Expressway). In the 1950s, the team was associated with the Pittsburgh Pirates and was managed by Danny Murtaugh. Other notable Pelican managers included Larry Gilbert and Abner Powell, with the latter credited with introducing the perforated "rain check" in 1889. The Pelicans played their final game there in 1957.
