1934-36 Batter-Up
#64 Dizzy Dean (Browntone)

This issue featuring Cardinals Hall-of-Fame pitcher Dizzy Dean is one of 192 numbered cards within the Depression-era classic Batter-Up set. Distributed by the National Chicle Company of Cambridge, MA, from 1934-1936, this set consists of two series: card #'s 1-80, and slightly smaller sized card #'s 81-192. The low-number cards are found in six different color varieties, while the high-number cards are found in four different color varieties. The offered example is a "Browntone" color variety issue.

1930's legend Dizzy Dean enjoyed an outstanding first half of an injury-shortened 12-year career. He was best known for leading the "Gashouse Gang" St Louis Cardinals team to a seven-game victory over the Detroit Tigers in the 1934 World Series, after which he was named the National League's MVP Award winner. With a 30-7 record in the 1934 season, Dean has the distinction of being the last National League pitcher to win 30 games in a season.

This is a premium quality PSA NM-MT 8 example. All four corners are sharp and squared, with just a hint of chipping visible on the bottom two. The card-front surface quality is superb, Dean's stunning action photo-image is finely detailed and clearly registered, and the browntone coloration is rich and bold. The card-back is exceptionally clean and an attractive vintage-tan color.
