1934 Goudey #6 Dizzy Dean PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $3,818.75
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only three examples of this classic card have ever been graded higher. #6 Dizzy Dean is a particularly difficult card to find in high grade. As a low-number (#1-24) series card in the 1934 Goudey set, the #6 Dean card tended to gravitate toward the top of card stacks and receive more wear than later numbers (in addition to being printed on slightly lesser-quality stock that wore more easily than later series cards). Regarded by many as the greatest pitcher of all time, between 1932 and 1936 Dizzy Dean won 120 games, including thirty in 1934. He was also one of the game’s most popular players, as well known for his wit and wisdom as for being the central figure of St. Louis’ legendary “Gashouse Gang” of the 1930s. This 1934 Goudey #6 Dizzy Dean has four sharp corners. It is centered slightly toward the right border (approximately 60/40 L/R), with flawless and bold colors. The card is crisp and clean, both front and back. Dizzy Dean appears in far fewer quality baseball-card sets than many other extremely significant Hall of Famers, such as Ruth and Cobb. This is a very high grade example of one of the most popular and classic cards of the 1930s, and is perhaps the ultimate classic card of one of baseball's most legendary Hall of Famers. SMR value for the assigned grade is $4,800. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
