Description

One of the very popular 1930s sets, the World Wide Gum (V356) cards are hockey's equivalent to the 1933 Goudey baseball set. They are similar in size, thickness and star power, with an astounding 70 of the 135 cards in the set being rookie cards and over 30 Hall of Famers. The presented lot of 93 different cards represents 69% of the complete set and includes many of those HOFers and rookie cards. An interesting note to this lot is that 19 of the 93 cards obviously came from one collection, as they have kept amazing appeal, with sharp corners and falling in the EX to NM range, except each shows a unique toned pattern on the back at the upper right and bottom left corners from years of storage - there is no paper loss or addition on these, just paper discoloration. The balance are predominantly off-grade, ranging from FR/GD to VG-EX with most GD to VG. Key cards include: #1 Conacher (FR), 3 Siebert (GD), 5 Shore (GD), 17 Gorman (GD), 18 Morenz (GD), 36 Clapper (VG), 57 Ly. Patrick (GD), 66 Voss (EX-MT, toned), 94 Le. Patrick (VG), 95 Smythe (PR, paper loss on back) and 114 O'Connor (FR). For a complete listing of the cards in this lot, please visit our website.

We have noted the cards that are sharp, but have the toned backs.
