Dizzy Dean “Winners Club” Premium Collection (1935 Grape-Nuts)
Out of stock
A splendid ensemble of Dizzy Dean premiums from 1935. As frontman of the Gashouse Gang and, of course, an invincible moundsman, Dean’s popularity during the mid-decade was in full stride. Post Cereal (specifically, their product Grape-Nuts) contracted with Diz to provide consumers the exciting opportunity to identify with their national hero via a series of tangible premiums. Here surviving is a trio from that promotion. All of these are fashioned as brass stampings and remain fairly as issued. Specifically, there are included: trong>1) “Dizzy Dean Winners” Membership Pin – a figural ball and bat with original brooch back; NM/MT with no compromise in the red-printed characters or stitching. trong>2) “Dizzy Dean Winners” Ring – this is the 1935 version (not to be construed with the one produced the following year); light tarnish, but maintains original integrity in shape and imagery; NM. trong>3) “Dizzy Dean Winners” Club Badge (cited in Hake’s Toy Premiums as DZY-4); NM/MT with red lettering remaining in full. And finally included with this collection is the Dizzy Dean premium pamphlet which, we assume, was distributed in boxes of the product or available at the point of sale. With a photo portrait of Dean on the cover, this publication measures 3-1/2″ x 6-1/4″ and it firmly binds its 12 pages. The piece has some minor damage in the lower right corner, but still remains in Excellent condition.
