News Photo of Dizzy Dean (St. Louis) and Lon Warneke (Chicago) on Opening Day, 1935.

Lot 385. News Photo of Dizzy Dean (St. Louis) and Lon Warneke (Chicago) on Opening Day, 1935. In a 6” x 8” Acme Newspictures photo dated April 16, Dean (at left) and Warneke are pictured shortly before their expected “pitchers’ duel” to open the 1935 baseball season in Chicago. The duel was short-lived, however, because in the first inning, a shot off Freddy Lindstrom’s bat struck Dean in a leg, and he had to leave the game. In 1934, Dean and his brother Paul pitched the Cardinals to a World Championship. In 1935, he recovered from his opening-day injury to lead the N.L. in victories for a second consecutive season. Warneke won 22 games for the Cubs in 1934, and 30 in 1935. The Cubs made it to the 1935 World Series, and Warneke did his part to make them World Champions by winning two games. Unfortunately, his pitcher teammates went 0-4. The photo has an Acme Newspictures stamp on the back, a small chip in the lower left corner and several light creases. Vg-ex with a strong image. Winning Bid $35.
