1933 World Wide (Canadian) Goudey
Low Number Uncut Sheet of 24 Players!
Condition & Description: Obtained directly from a man, who, in 1957, rescued it from the garbage when Consolidated Lithographic Manufacturing (CLM) of Quebec was cleaning out its files following its purchase by Somerville. According to the owner, all but a small number of other uncut World Wide sheets were discarded and this was the unique example of this series which was saved. To the best of our knowledge, which includes an extensive hobby survey, either this sheet is one of two known (according to an unverified claim), or one-of-a-kind.
The sheet itself is in remarkable shape and remains preserved with the same qualities -- vivid imagery, original colors, and perfectly registration -- as when it was first printed and bound. The two binding holes are located near the upper left hand corner and the lower left hand corner and help to identify the sheet as the CLM file copy. There is very light creasing and some wear near the corners and between the two binding holes. If professionally cut, the following cards would each grade either Mint or Gem Mint: #18 Herold (Muddy) Ruel, #19 Bill Dickey, #13 Lafayette Thompson, #14 Henry Johnson, #40 Taylor Douthit, #15 Victor Sorrell, #17 Watson Clark, #7 Ted Lyons, and #16 George Blaeholder. There are other cards which would also grade high, but the previous nine are all in pristine shape without any discernable wear. Other notable Hall of Famers include Pie Traynor, Ki Ki Cuyler, and Bill Terry.
