Presented is an extremely rare near-complete set containing 89 of the 100 different cards in the 1939-1940 V301-1 O-Pee-Chee hockey series. Each card measures 5 x 7 inches and features a striking black-and-white photo of a professional hockey player from the NHL. They are extremely condition sensitive due to their large-size. The majority of the photos are posed in uniform but some players appear in formal dress attire. The V301-1 O-Pee-Chee set is inclusive of every team in the league and as such is entirely comprehensive, depicting numerous stars and Hall of Famers, including Turk Broda, Syl Apps, and Charlie Conacher. This is the first collection of V301-1s we have ever offered! Condition is 9% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, 49% Vg-Ex to Ex, 26% Gd to Vg, and 16% lesser. Keys: #2 Broda (two pinholes, pencil mark on back, otherwise Vg), 6 Apps (Vg), 36 Patrick (Ex), 59 C. Conacher (Ex), 75 Thompson (Vg+), and 86 Hextall (Ex). Missing the following eleven cards for completion: #8, 10 Horner, 24, 28, 51, 63, 68 Abel, 96, 97 Brimsek, 99 Bauer, and 100 Shore. This is an extremely attractive and, for V301s, very high-grade collection of eighty-nine cards, representing 89% of a complete set, from one of 1930s rarest and most classic hockey sets. Total: 89 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
