(LOT 26)
1933 Goudey #223 Dizzy Dean PSA 8 NM-MT - Only 3 PSA Examples Graded Higher!

DIZZY MARVEL!!! A collector favorite, this PSA 8 NM-MT 1933 Goudey #223 Dizzy Dean memento has only been bested by a paltry three PSA examples! Immortal HOF twirler Dizzy Dean will forever be considered one of the most popular players to ever grace a baseball diamond. The last National League 30-game winner, Dizzy posted 30 wins in the 1934 campaign when he and his brother Daffy's 49 combined victories led the Cardinals to a World Series title. By the age of 26 he had already won an incredible 134 games and was well on his way to being a 300-game winner until a line drive off the bat of Earl Averill in the 1937 All-Star game broke his toe.

Consequently, Dean altered his pitching motion in favor of his injury, resulting in several arm injuries that curtailed his career. Arguably Dizzy's most celebrated card, this '33 Goudey marvel includes a breathtaking pitching pose set against a sparkling array of blue and green background hues. Superb centering (only slightly favoring the lower edge), four bright white borders, pinpoint corners, and impeccable surfaces complete this captivating masterpiece that has stubbornly defied the past 90 years!
