1934 World Series Photo with “Tiger Tamers” Dizzy and Daffy Dean Predicting Success.
Lot 13. 1934 World Series Photo with “Tiger Tamers” Dizzy and Daffy Dean Predicting Success. Taken just before the start of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers, this 7”x9” black & white ACME NEWSPICTURES wire photo has Dizzy (on the left) saying: “That ought to hit the old Tiger right between the eyes.” Brother Daffy evidently agrees and adds ‘I’ll follow up where you leave off.” They were right. The Cardinals won the series in seven games, and the Dean brothers were the winning pitchers in all four victories. Dizzy was 2-1 with a 1.73 ERA, and Paul was even better, 2-0 with a 1.00 ERA. The photo is sharp and brilliant, retaining the original qualities it displayed on the day it was produced. It does have a barely noticeable small amount of clear residue toward the bottom. And it is a great collectible recognizing the Dean brothers. Winning Bid $83.
