Description:
1950's Dizzy Dean's Harmonica. The 1934 St. Louis Cardinals' "Gashouse Gang" played a hard, gritty style and never avoided a confrontation, whether it was on the field, in a hotel lobby or even in their own clubhouse. They even fielded a terrific hillbilly band known as the Mississippi Mudcats, featuring "Pepper" Martin on guitar and Dizzy Dean on harmonica. This harmonica was played by Dean and obtained directly from the Dean family by famed collector, Barry Halper. Dean's name is engraved on the "Opera" brand instrument, the "Made in West Germany" stamping dating the piece to after the 1949 formation of that country. Great condition, in original tin case. Letter of provenance from Barry Halper.
