1934 V354 World Wide Gum Canadian Goudey PSA- and SGC-Graded Collection (48)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,998

Collection of forty-eight different 1934 V354 Canadian Goudeys, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA (34 cards) and SGC (14 cards). This partial set of 1934 V354 World Wide Gum includes 48 different of the 96 cards in the set, with an impressive eleven Hall of Famers, among them Rogers Hornsby, Tris Speaker, 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 1934 Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." design on the front. The reverse text of 1934 Canadian Goudeys are printed in both French and English. The PSA grades are as follows: Three NM 7: #26, 35, and 89. Eight EX-MT 6: #6, 8, 12, 20, 43, 46, 80, and 94. Sixteen EX 5: #3, 7, 10, 19, 24 Jackson, 42, 45, 49, 51, 53 Terry, 60, 62, 66, 74, 78 Hafey, and 79. Four VG-EX 4: #4 Maranville, 15, 48 Ruffing, and 72. Two VG 3: #95 and 96. One GOOD 2: #93. The SGC grades are as follows: One EX/NM 80: #70 Vaughan . One EX+ 70: #34. One EX 60: #67 Waner. Four VG/EX 50: #29 Speaker, 32 Rixey, 41, and 47. Four VG 40: #1 Hornsby, 50, 71 Hubbell, and 81. Two GOOD 30: #25 and 73. One POOR 10: #75. The V354 set not only represents a fascinating variation to the most classic 1933 and 1934 Goudey baseball gum-card sets, it is also far rarer. This is a very substantial, attractive, and rarely offered partial set of 1934 World Wide Gum (Canadian Goudey) Baseball, entirely graded and with numerous highlights. Total: 48 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,998
