1937 V300 O-Pee-Chee Near-Complete Set (38 of 40) Including Foxx and Greenberg

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,113

Rarely offered and very impressive looking collection of 1937 V300 O-Pee-Chee includes thirty-eight of the forty cards comprising this rare, unusual, and very substantial 1930s Canadian issue. Missing only #118 DiMaggio and #120 Feller for completion. The collection is highlighted by thirteen Hall of Famers including Jimmy Foxx, Hank Greenberg, and Rogers Hornsby. Twenty-seven cards range from Vg to Vg-Ex, and eleven are in lesser grades. Three cards have been graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: #103 Averill (Vg-Ex), 106 Foxx (POOR 10; appears to have been downgraded due to loose top, strong Vg-Ex appearance), 107 Greenberg (Pr), 111 Goslin (Vg-Ex), 112 Gehringer (VG/EX 50), 115 Appling (Vg), 117 Lazzeri (Gd), 119 Dickey (Vg), 124 Cronin (Vg), 132 Ferrell (Vg), 136 Ruffing (Vg), 137 Grove (Gd), and 140 Hornsby (VG 40). Cards from the 1937 V300 O-Pee-Chee set are very difficult to find in any condition. These cards are designed with die-cut backgrounds that can be punched out and folded back to allow each card to stand up. Because of the die-cut stand-up design, many V300s are naturally found in damaged condition, and in many cases are found with the die-cut backgrounds entirely lost. Higher-grade examples tend to be downgraded by grading companies due to very minor factors relating to their die-cut design. The reverse of each card is printed in both English and French. This is a very attractive mid-grade collection of thirty-eight cards, representing 95% of a complete set, from one of 1930s rarest and most classic sets. Total: 38 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,113
