This date back in time: On January 6, 1976, Ted Turner purchased the Atlanta Braves for $12 million. Today, the Atlanta franchise is valued at $446 million, and is owned by Liberty Media. Liberty Media purchased the MLB club in 2007 for $400 million. Although Turner is not involved in professional sports ownership anymore, he is the largest American landowner, with ownership in fifteen different ranches.
