Board Game Related Stocks

Anyone who plays MONOPOLY® knows the value of owning at least one, if not all four, railroads. We have a set of three of the railroad stocks of the most popular board game ever.

Baltimore and Ohio Railroad with "Tom Thumb" engraving, Pennsylvania Railroad with the famous "Horseshoe Curve" scene, and the Reading Company with train artwork.

Here are some MONOPOLY® Fun Facts, courtesy of Hasbro:
  • Parker Brothers rejected the MONOPOLY® game when it was first presented to them in 1933.
  • Over 5,120,000,000 little green houses have been “constructed” since the MONOPOLY® game was introduced in 1935.
  • he longest MONOPOLY® game ever played was 1,680 hours long. That is 70 straight days!
