1933 V353 World Wide Gum Canadian Goudey SGC-Graded Complete Set (94)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $11,400
Outstanding and very rarely seen near-complete set of 1933 V353 Canadian Goudeys, highlighted by twenty-six Hall of Famers, including Lou Gehrig, two Jimmie Foxx, and two Babe Ruth. Very similar to the classic 1933 Goudey set issued in the United States, this is the rare Canadian version issued by Goudey's World Wide Gum. Only ninety-four cards were issued in the Canadian set, as opposed to 240 cards in the U.S. set, but the Canadian set managed to include a very high concentration of Hall of Famers. The V353 World Wide Gum series (commonly referred to as “Canadian Goudeys”) is identical in design to its American counterpart on the fronts, but with the text on the backs printed in French and English, or entirely in English. The first fifty-two cards share the same card number on the back, while players numbered 53 to 94 have different numbers in the American series. Each card in this complete set has been professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC as "Authentic." The cards all are bright, crisp, and clean, presenting as Ex to Nr/Mt-Mt, and are likely neatly cut from a sheet. This is an exceptionally attractive complete set of this rare, unusual, and very substantial 1930s Canadian Goudey issue that presents a unique opportunity to acquire a beautiful set at a fraction of the cost of one with numerically graded examples sharing the same exceptional display value. Total 94 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $11,400
