Atlanta Braves

Service time in days & years (through 2017 season).

Liberty Media Corp. acquired the Braves from Time Warner in February 2007. Under the deal, Liberty swapped 60 million shares of Time Warner stock in exchange for about $1 billion in cash, the Braves and a group of Time, Inc. magazines. The companies valued the Braves at $461 million, and MLB owners approved the deal in May, 2007. Turner Broadcasting, acquired by Time Warner in October of 1996, had purchased the Braves for $12M in 1976.

Forbes magazine valued the club at $1.5 billion in April, 2017.
