1933 V353 World Wide Gum Overview


The 1933 Goudey baseball card set is one of the most popular sets of all-time. Canadians got a taste of the set, too, with their own ‘Goudey’ cards.

Created by the World Wide Gum Company, the 1933 V353 set is practically a carbon copy to the 1933 Goudey issue in terms of look. The main design differences are that some cards have French on the backs and all of them state they were produced in Canada as opposed to the more popular U.S. Goudey set.

The set wasn’t nearly as big as the 240-card Goudey release – the Canadian cards numbered only 94. Because of the shortened checklist, it wasn’t as star-studded of a set. For example, while the 1933 Goudey set contains four Babe Ruth cards, the version printed in Canada has only two. With a set only about 40% as large, however, that is to be expected.

Collectors also have to be careful to not confuse these with the 1934 V354 World Wide Gum cards. While approximately half the set utilized the designs similar to the 1934 Goudey cards, the other half kept the design from this 1933 issue. The difference, in addition to the card numbers, can also be found on those backs, which state they are part of the 1934 series.

Even though the cards are rarer than their U.S. counterparts, they are generally not as valuable.
