Description1934-38 Dizzy Dean Original News Photographs Lot of 4, All PSA/DNA Type 1. He was a big league star by age twenty-two and one of the greatest pitchers ever for the six years he was healthy. His dominance in those seasons, much like Koufax would enjoy three decades later, gained him passage to the Hall of Fame. As the ace of the Gashouse Gang in his miracle year of 1934, he won thirty games, the MVP award, and pitched a complete shutout in Game 7 of the World Series to win the game and championship for the Cardinals.
Great lot of four features two from the 1934 championship season; one with brother Daffy (6x8", top right corner missing) and one taking batting practice in street clothes before the series opener (6x8"). Also, 1935 with Branch Rickey and Frankie Frisch (5.5x7.5", image flaking, editorial marks) and at Spring Training 1938 (7x9", top right corner missing). Four full LOAs from PSA/DNA, all Type 1.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
