    Description

    1933 V252 Canadian Gum Complete Set (50) - #5 on the PSA Set Registry With "Pop One with None Higher" Howie Morenz! Offered is a rarely made available 50-card complete set of 1933 V252 Canadian Gum "Hockey Picture Gum" cards. This scarce depression-era promotion is by far one the most challenging vintage hockey cards sets to complete. The set is packed with stars and HoFers (naturally) and presents one of the more brazen mail-in trading card offers. Consumers had to send in the letters as featured on the front of each card and spell out not one but five team names needing 12 to 17 letters each in exchange for a "Home Hockey Game." This would have quite a prize considering extra pennies would have been a luxury at that time. If successful, this would explain their scarcity today. If not, we should note this is the lone Canadian Gum promotion. Just over 40 cards are graded VG-EX or nicer, the undisputed jewel is the solid EX+ card of legend Howie Morenz which is a "Pop One With None Higher" title holder!

    This set ranks #5 on the "All-Time Finest" list on the PSA Set Registry with a 4.27 GPA! Includes: PSA NM+ 7.5: 1 card, Duke Dutkowski (Pop One, None Higher!); PSA NM 7: 2 cards, Lorne Chabot (Pop One, One Higher!) and Alex Connell (Pop One, None Higher!); PSA EX-MT+ 6.5: 1 card, Jimmy Ward (Pop One, One Higher!); PSA EX-MT 6: 3 cards, Ott Heller, Dave Kerr and Bill Touhey (Pop One, One Higher!),; PSA EX+ 5.5: 3 cards, Ace Bailey, Red Dutton and Howie Morenz (Pop One, None Higher!); PSA EX 5: 5 cards, Charlie Conacher, Chuck Gardiner, Johnny Gottselig (Pop Three, One Higher), Georges Mantha and Dave Trottier; PSA VG-EX+ 4.5: 5 cards, Helge Bostrom, Dit Clapper, Lionel Conacher, Happy Emms and Red Jackson; PSA VG-EX 4: 21 cards, Abel, Aurie, Brydge, Burke, Cook, Cox, Dillon, Hap Day, Duguid, Finnigan, Goodfellow, Hainsworth, Himes, Jackson, Aurel Joliat, Murdoch, Northcott, John Roach, Smith, Sorrell and Stewart; PSA VG+ 3.5: 3 cards, Carson, Sheppard and Wasnie; PSA VG 3: 2 cards, Brydson and Seibert; PSA Good 2: 2 cards, Gracie and Horner; PSA Poor 1: 2 cards, King Clancy and Lepine.
