After the 1923 season, the new Canton Bulldogs was purchased by Samuel H. Deutsch and renamed as Cleveland Bulldogs and won the 1924 league championship. If you're going to ask how much did Samuel paid for the team, the amount is much lesser compared to the prices of team nowadays, it's $2500, but this amount of money is very much bigger during that time. 

The team played the ball and was treated like one, transferring from one owner to another. In 1925, a businessmen from Canton, Ohio purchased the team again and name it back to Canton Bulldogs and at the end of the next season, the team was disbanded. But that doesn't mean they were out in the field because in 1927 Samuel Deutsch of Cleveland founded a new Bulldogs.

Again, the transfer of ownership continues since after the 1927 season, rights over the team was purchased by Elliott Fisher and transferred the team to Detroit. The team stayed 2 years in the hands of Elliot and sold Tim Mara and gave the team a new New York Giants.
