Facebook’s stock certificates could become collectors’ items similar to other certificates from tech companies like Apple Inc. and Yahoo!

Facebook filed an image of its stock certificate with other paperwork this week with the Securities Exchange Commission . The image shows Facebook’s logo on top minus its blue color, instead printed in just black and white.

The designs in its margins seem similar to an insignia worn by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s hoodie, though TechCrunch said that’s just a coincidence. Apple’s certificate filed with the SEC has similar margins.

Facebook’s certificate lacks the splashes of color found on Yahoo! and Google certificates, also shared by TechCrunch. None of the tech giant certificates contain the colorful images of a corporation like The Walt Disney Co., which shows a photo of its founder as well as many of its popular animated characters on its certificate.
