Major League Franchise Values

Looking for an investment? One that has an almost certainty of increasing in value by 10% or more? If you don’t have a billion dollars on hand then don’t even think about buying a major league franchise. All but six teams have a franchise value that have exceeded $1 billion. All 30 teams have seen an increase in their franchise value, with the Reds seeing only a 1% increase, according to a survey done by Forbes.

The big test could be the sale of the Miami Marlins by the end of the year. Forbes has estimated their franchise value at $940 million. Loria is said to be seeking over $1 billion for the franchise. Looking for a winner? How about those Cleveland Indians with a franchise value of $920 million? That is less than the Marlins and you have playoff revenue as a possibility.
