Jeremy “Dizzy” Dean had a Hall of Fame baseball career and personality. On the field, Dean was a four-time All-Star, a World Series champion, a National League MVP, led the MLB in wins twice and led in the MLB in strikeouts four times. Dean was the last NL pitcher to win 30 games in a single season. Dean was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953 and had his No. 17 retired retired by the St. Louis Cardinals franchise. After baseball, Dean became an endeared broadcasting personality for some of the major television networks. Dean came off as relatable by unintentionally creating expressions and words that wouldn’t find their way into a dictionary. On the inside rear collar fold is a “SPALDING” manufacturer’s tag with a flag tag attached below that reads, “DRY CLEAN ONLY”. Adjacent is a size “40” tag. Across the chest reads, “Oilers” and on the back is the player number “3”. These are done in navy blue felt on red felt lettering sewn directly onto the pinstripe jersey. The numbering and lettering are in all original fantastic condition. Inside on the waistband of the pants is a “SPALDING” manufacturer’s tag with a flag tag attached below that reads, “DRY CLEAN ONLY”. Adjacent is a size “40” tag. The player name, “Jerome Dean” is embroidered adjacent in red chain-stitching. The 30-year-old Dean is seen sitting and celebrating with a Coke with his new Tulsa Oilers (of the Texas League) teammates after he pitched a six-hitter in his Texas League debut after being demoted by the Chicago Cubs to help recover his ailing right arm. Dean won the game, 5-4, which was his first minor league game since 1931. We have been unable to determine what number Dean wore with the Oilers with period imagery, but the style and condition of the jersey are germane to the pants with Dean's name stitched inside and we believe the two pieces were sourced together. This uniform is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows appropriate use. Accompanied by an original wire photo of Dean wearing this style uniform.
