1934 Dizzy and Paul Dean Sweatshirt Box
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $705.00
The success of the famed Dean brothers, Dizzy and Daffy, in 1934 resulted in numerous retail products bearing their endorsement. Offered here is a rare and desirable retail box, issued after the 1934 World Series, that once housed six Dizzy and Paul Dean sweatshirts. The paper label on the lid is stunning in its design and features large color-tinted photos of both Dizzy and Paul superimposed atop a photo picturing pre-game activities at Sportsman's Park during the 1934 World Series. Printed below each player's respective image is brief recap of his 1934 season. "Me and Paul" is lettered along the base of the lid. The side of the box also displays a label featuring portrait images of Dizzy and Paul. This is the ultimate Dizzy and Dazzy retail display box and the first we can recall ever offering. The box displays light wear commensurate with its age and fragile nature, including a very light notation on the lid reading "Cotton Patches 1963" (the notation has been erased and only the indentation of the writing instrument remains). This is an outstanding and extremely rare Dizzy and Paul Dean display item. In Very Good to Excellent condition. 10.25 x 15.5 x 8 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $705.00
