Set Registry Spotlight

Simgin - The Number One Current Finest 1936-37 World Wide Gum (V356) Hockey Set
The market for vintage hockey cards has been strong in recent times. In the vast majority of cases, hockey cards for the prewar era through the 1950s and 1960s are far tougher to locate than baseball cards from the same period. When you consider the huge difference in condition scarcity, the gap in difficulty grows even more. The 135-card 1936 World Wide Gum set is one of those extremely tough issues. Larger than many hockey sets from the period, this black-and-white set is filled with the stars of the generation. Key cards include those of legends like King Clancy, Eddie Shore and Howie Morenz. This year's winner is one of only two sets to ever reach 100% completion, and it possesses nearly a full point lead over #2 on the All-Time Finest list with a GPA of 6.35. Click here for a look at this great set.
