1933 Goudey #223 Dizzy Dean PSA 8 NM-MT
HOF DEAN!!! Had it not been for Earl Averill's line drive that broke his toe in the 1937 All Star Game, Dizzy Dean could have been one of the top ten pitchers of all-time. Even so, Dean's accomplishments merited membership into baseball's HOF, and he is the last NL pitcher to win 30 games which he accomplished in the Cardinals 1934 championship season. From a personality standpoint, Dizzy Dean was the closet player to the immortal Babe Ruth. His upbeat moods and love for the game made him ultra-popular with not only Cardinal diehards but any avid baseball fan in the country. This justifies why the Goudey Gum Company included a brilliant pitching pose of endearing Dean in their landmark 1933 set. Presented here is that #223 Dean subject in a sensational PSA NM/MT 8 holder, one of only three examples that stand as the finest of their kind! The classic pitching image of this "happy go lucky" Hall of Famer is absolutely breathtaking, revealing an array of vibrant hues as Dizzy has just released another one of his tantalizing pitches. Fine centering, clean surfaces, and a pack-fresh glow all substantiate the hallowed PSA 8 assessment that is equally synonymous with Dean's magnificent pitching prowess!
