    Description

    1935 UM7 Rice-Stix Dizzy & Paul Dean NM-MT Pair Plus Rare Mechanical Pencil. Rice-Stix was a St. Louis based clothing manufacturer. In 1935 they produced a set - a pair really - of very nicely made promo cards honoring the brothers Dean. 1934 was a good year for the Dean clan, rookie Paul Dean went 19-11 while his brother had a career year going 30-7 and would earn NL MVP honors. The brothers accounted for over 50% of the teams victories taking the Cardinals to the October classic - which they won - with the brothers equally accounting for all four wins! Offered is Dizzy Dean (PSA NM-MT 8-Pop Seven With None Higher!) and Paul Dean (PSA NM-MT 8-Pop Three, One Higher!). The cards display very colorful, finely detailed portraits on a textured paper stock. One can only guess how many of these were circulated as Rice-Stix was not a retailer and how even fewer would have made it outside of St. Louis area. Also included is a scarce Rice-Stix mechanical pencil with a mother-of-pearl body featuring portraits of the Dean brothers and ad copy that says, "Compliments of David Eiseman Rice-Stix Dry Goods Co. - Sole distributors of Dizzy and Paul Dean Shirts." Length is approx. 5" and overall presents close to near mint.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - up.
