Paul Dean Gas House Gang signed autograph 3X5 Index JSA

For sale is an autographed 3X5 Index Card of Paul "Daffy" Dean. There is some paper loss on the card not affecting the signature.

Dean (August 14, 1912 – March 17, 1981) was an American Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher . Born in Lucas , Arkansas , he pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals ( 1934 – 1939 ), the New York Giants ( 1940 – 1941 ), and the St. Louis Browns ( 1943 ).

Dean played several years of baseball alongside his more notable pitching brother, Jay "Dizzy" Dean . Because of his brother's nickname, Dean also had a nickname, "Daffy", but this did not reflect his personality as he was considered quiet and serious. [citation needed ]

During his rookie season (at the age of 22), Dean pitched a no-hitter on September 21, 1934. He finished the year with a 19-11 record to help St. Louis win the National League pennant. In the World Series , he and his brother won two games apiece, combining for a 4-1 record, 28 strikeouts and a 1.43 ERA, as the Cardinals took the series against the Detroit Tigers in seven games.

The following year, he won 19 games again. He got injured, however, and pitched ineffectively for the rest of his career.

The autograph comes with a James Spence (JSA) COA G00993. Spence is one of the people that helped put PSA/DNA on the map. S&H $2.99.
