Dizzy Dean's Harmonica

The 1934 St. Louis Cardinals' "Gashouse Gang" played a hard, gritty style and never avoided a confrontation, whether it was on the field, in a hotel lobby or even in their own clubhouse. They even fielded a terrific hillbilly band known as the Mississippi Mudcats, featuring "Pepper" Martin on guitar and Dizzy Dean on harmonica. This harmonica was played by Dean and obtained directly from the Dean family by famed collector, Barry Halper.
