Although Dean achieved many things during his professional baseball career from 1930 to 1947 while pitching for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs, and St. Louis Browns, he is best known as the leader of the 1934 Gashouse Gang with the Cardinals when he had a 30-7 record and 2.66 ERA for regular season play. Diz, as he was nicknamed was on the same roster as his brother Paul, who was called Daffy. Considered heroes during the Great Depression, some of Dean’s accomplishments include winning the NL pennant, being the last NL pitcher to win 30 games within the same season, and being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953. With a solid career as a pitcher, any baseball cards are a treasure, even the newer and less expensive ones such as the 2001 SP Legendary Cuts Dizzy Dean Baseball Card #12 that sells for less than $5.
