1933 V353 World Wide Gum Canadian Goudey SGC-Graded Collection (17) Including Eight Hall of Famers!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,370
Outstanding collection of seventeen different 1933 V353 Canadian Goudey cards, highlighted by eight Hall of Famers, entirely graded and encapsulated by SGC. This collection represents approximately 20% of a complete set. The V353 World Wide Gum series (commonly referred as “Canadian Goudeys”) is complete at only ninety-four cards. They are identical in design to their American counterparts on the fronts, but with the text on the backs printed in French and English, or entirely in English, and with the first 52 cards sharing the same card number on the back as their American counterparts, while players numbered 53 to 94 have different numbers in the American series. These cards are new to the modern collecting world, having remained in the possession of the original owner's family until just recently. Their exceptional high grade is due to the good fortune of having been stored away, undisturbed, for decades. (Note: The #85 Jimmy Foxx from the collection, as well as an additional group of thirty-two cards, are offered as their own separate lots). This collection consists of the following: Two NM/MT 88: #13 and 69 Cochrane (HOF). Five NM 84: #2 Vance (HOF), 19 Dickey (HOF), 38, 62 Martin, and 71. Four EX/NM 80: #5 Herman (HOF), 14 Johnson, 64 Grimes (HOF), and 76. Two EX+ 70: #22 Traynor (HOF) and 49 Frisch (HOF). Four EX 60: #29 Foxx (HOF), 33, 37, and 67. This is an exceptionally attractive collection of this rare, unusual, and very substantial 1930s Canadian Goudey issue. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the two half grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,130. Total: 17 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $2,370
