Dizzy and Daffy Dean St. Louis Cardinals Signed AUTO 7x9 photo JSA LOA

Dizzy Dean (D. 1974) played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Browns. A brash and colorful personality, Dean was the last National League pitcher to win 30 games in one season. After his playing career, he became a popular television sports commentator. Dean was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953.

Paul Daffy Dean (D. 1981) pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals (from 1934 to 1939), the New York Giants (from 1940 to 1941), and the St. Louis Browns (1943). Because of his brother's nickname, "Dizzy", Dean also had a nickname, Daffy, but this did not reflect his personality as he was considered quiet and serious. The nickname was mainly a creation of the press. During his rookie season (at the age of 22), Dean pitched a no-hitter on September 21, 1934. He finished the year with a 19-11 record to help St. Louis win the National League pennant. In the World Series, he and his brother won two games apiece, combining for a 4-1 record, 28 strikeouts and a 1.43 ERA, as the Cardinals took the series against the Detroit Tigers in seven games.

Together the Dean brothers dominated on the Gas House Gang.

Offered is a 7x9 (corners of photo clipped) United Press photo (TYPE II) shows the Dean Brothers in their hey day (Gas House Gang years).  Based on the United Press stamping, the photo was produced off an original negative (circa 1947-58). Great photo signed both Dizzy and Daffy Dean.
