Rarely offered and very impressive-looking near-complete set of 1937-1938 V304E O-Pee-Chee consisting of forty-five of the forty-eight cards comprising this rare and very substantial 1930s Canadian hockey issue. Missing only #135, 145, and 166 for completion. Also included is a color variation for card #144. This near-complete set is highlighted by nine Hall of Famers, including Toe Blake, Turk Broda, Charlie Conacher, and Aurel Joliat. Each card is professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. The offered near-complete set currently ranks third on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 5.36. PSA Grading Composite: Nine NM 7: #134 Horner (HOF, highest graded), 138 Conacher (HOF), 142 Drillon RC (HOF), 146 (highest graded), 149, 152 Joliat (HOF, highest graded), 163 (highest graded), 164 (pop 1, highest graded), and 178 (highest graded).

Cards were issued in two different border colors, both of which are represented within this near-complete set (thirty-nine blue and seven purple). A near-complete set such as this is very rarely seen. In fact, this is the most complete V304E set, and only the second sizable collection, we have ever offered! This is a very substantial near-complete set of this scarce 1930s hockey issue. The total SMR value in the assigned grades is $8,472. Total: 46 cards (45 different plus one variation).

Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
