Rick Ferrell
(b. October 12, 1905 - d. July 27, 1995)
One of the few players inducted to the Hall of Fame primarily for defense, Rick Ferrell nonetheless hit .300 four times. He was a career .281 hitter and drew 931 walks. With the Red Sox, for four seasons Ferrell teamed with pitching Wes to form one of baseball's few brothers batteries.
Inducted in 1984

Comments: 1940 Playball PSA 6 - that was the first portrait for Ferrell - an eBay win! Then in February, 2005 I went a little crazy and bought a huge group of '40 Playball cards listed below off the Mickey's Sportscards website - including an upgrade to a PSA 7:

1940 Playball Rick Ferrell #21 PSA 7 1940 Playball Tris Speaker #170 PSA 7
1940 Playball Connie Mack #132 PSA 7 1940 Playball George Sisler #179 PSA 8
1940 Playball Frankie Frisch #167 PSA 7 1940 Playball Red Faber #230 PSA 7

In May, 2006 I upgraded to a beautiful PSA 8 when I won another eBay auction from seller Lyle Mortamer. After deciding to stick with Bill Dickey for the 1940 Playball issue, I swapped the Ferrell out for a PSA 6 1941 W753 issue in August, 2006. I upgraded to a PSA 7 in May, 2008 with an eBay win and again to this PSA 8 with another victory in October, 2010. Funny….the PSA 8 was just slightly more than what I paid for the PSA 6.
