For more information about the assembly and the condition of the PSA-graded complete 1933 Goudey set that is consigned to this auction (of which this is a part) and which has been broken down into 110 smaller lots, please visit this link which provides the introduction to the set that appears in the printed catalog:
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Out of 449 examples of the classic 1933 Goudey #223 Dizzy Dean graded by PSA to date, only twenty-one have graded at this level, and only three have ever been graded higher. Regarded by many as the greatest pitcher of all time, Dean began his pitching career in 1932; it was brief but spectacular. Between 1932 and 1936 he won 120 games, including thirty in 1934. He was also one of the game’s most popular and irrepressible characters, and the central figure of St. Louis’ legendary “Gas House Gang” of the 1930s. Rich, deep colors and bright white borders. Centered slightly to the bottom, with near-perfect registration. Clean, boldly printed reverse with minor chipping visible along the top back border. A slight miscut is present along the top edge. 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 attractive, extremely high-grade PSA example of one of the most popular Hall of Famers of the 1930s, and one that would be a significant addition to virtually any 1933 Goudey PSA Registry set or Hall of Fame collection. SMR is $3,900. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++. SOLD FOR $4,740.00
