#9016 - Eddie Collins 1933 Signed Trade Agreement for HOFer Rick Ferrell Estimate: $200+

Contract, signed "Edward T. Collins, Jr., Vice," one page, 8.5 x 11, May 9, 1933. Agreement in which the Boston American League Baseball Company assigns the contracts of future HOFer Richard Ferrell and Lloyd Brown to the St. Louis American League Baseball Company in "exchange for the contract of Player Mervin J. Shea and a Cash consideration." Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Collins and countersigned by the vice president of the St. Louis American League, L. C. McEvoy. Ferrell was an eight-time all-star who played catcher for the St. Louis Browns, Boston Red Sox, and Washington Senators over the course of 18 seasons, and was regarded as one of the best catchers in baseball during the 1930s and early 1940s. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984. This contract relates to Ferrell's request to be upgraded to the major leagues after a hearing with the baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis revealed that the Tigers and Reds had colluded to keep Ferrell in the minor leagues. After receiving offers from many major league clubs, he signed a contract with the St. Louis Browns for $25,000. In excellent overall condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
