1934 V354 World Wide Gum Canadian Goudey Near-Complete Set (70 of 96)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,645

Rarely offered mixed-grade near-complete set of 1934 V354 Canadian Goudeys, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA (47 cards) and SGC (23 cards). This near-complete set of 1934 V354 World Wide Gum includes 70 different of the 96 cards in the set, with an impressive eighteen Hall of Famers, among them Jimmy Foxx, Tris Speaker, Lefty Grove, and Carl Hubbell. Very similar to the classic 1934 Goudey set issued in the United States, this is the rare Canadian version issued by Goudey's World Wide Gum. This set is very similar to, but much rarer, than its American counterpart. The exact same number of cards was issued in the Canadian set, as in the American set. The V354 World Wide Gum cards numbered 1 to 48 are identical in design to the 1933 Goudeys on the fronts, while players numbered 49 to 96 have the "Lou Gehrig says..." design on the front. The reverse text of 1934 Canadian Goudeys is printed in both French and English. This near-set is missing only twenty-six cards for completion, including #16 Pennock, 28 Ruth, 44 Haines, 53 Terry, 55 Dean, 56 Klein, 57 Gehringer, 59 Cochrane, 64 Frisch, 69 Durocher, and 92 Gehrig. The PSA grades are as follows: One NM 7: #37. Three EX-MT+ 6.5: # 24 Jackson, 38, and 72. One EX-MT 6: #27. Ten EX 5: #3, 15, 18 Rice, 32 Rixey, 33, 47, 60, 63, 84 Appling, and 88. One VG-EX+ 4.5: #79. Seventeen VG-EX 4: #4 Maranville, 7, 9, 21 Combs, 23, 29 Speaker, 31, 34, 36, 42, 48 Ruffing, 50, 61, 67 Waner, 76, 80, and 96. Eight VG 3: #10, 17 Lindstrom, 41, 43, 46, 68 Manush, 78 Hafey, and 87. One GOOD 2: #58 Foxx. Five PR-FR 1: #1 Hornsby, 13, 54 Grove, 65, and 95. The SGC grades are as follows: One EX/NM 80: #40. Four EX 60: #8, 26, 45, and 71 Hubbell. Four VG/EX 50: #2, 25, 35, and 62. Nine VG 40: #14, 22, 39, 51, 81, 86, 89, 91, and 93. Four GOOD 30: #49, 70 Vaughan, 73, and 82 Lombardi. One FAIR 20: #77. This is a very substantial, attractive, and rarely offered near-complete set of 1934 World Wide Gum (Canadian Goudey) Baseball, entirely graded and with numerous highlights. Total: 70 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,645
