1937 World Wide Gum V356

Information:
World Wide Gum was a Canadian-based company that was closely affiliated with Goudey. While WWG reprinted the pictures from the 1933 Goudey Baseball card set for the Canadian market, there were never any hockey sets issued south of the border to compare. When it came to the stars of the ice, WWG was all by itself. When the 1937 V356 World Wide Gum Hockey set was issued, the Great Depression was still affecting the way cards looked, which is evident in the design of the cards. 1937 V356 World Wide Gum Hockey card fronts feature green/gray-tinted close-up player photos surrounded by a white border. A white box below the player contains a card number and the player's name. The back features a card number and the player's name and team in a boldface font, followed by a short biography in English. A French translation of the text follows, along with a line explaining that the card was made in Canada. Despite being a World Wide Gum issue, there is nothing on the card itself that names them. Along with the players, there are cards of coaches and executives as well in the 135-card 1937 V356 World Wide Gum Hockey set. As a result, NHL legends like Conn Smythe and Tommy Gorman are included along with players Eddie Shore, King Clancy and Charlie Conacher.
