On August 15, Babe came to bat with loaded bases and a 1-1 tie game. He sent a moon shot to deep right field, whereupon all runners slowed, in case of a fly out, but Herman ran full-speed ahead, seeking extra bases. The ball bounced high off the wall, but pitcher Dazzy Vance couldn’t score from second and retreated to third after a rundown, only to find first-base runner Chick Fewster already there. Moments later, a hard-charging Herman joined them, leading to a tag-everyone double play. Truly classic work from Dem Bums.
Boston-based Goudey Gum incorporated a Canadian subsidiary, World Wide Gum, in 1933. Establishing this market made sense, as minor league teams enjoyed popularity across North America and the stateside set already included non-MLB players. (Babe Herman even signed his first pro contract in Edmonton in the early 20s.) OldBaseball.com nicely details the 1933 set, officially cataloged as ACC V353.
Confusingly for collectors, player numbers in both sets match from #1 (Bengough) to #52 (Cohen), but vary thereafter, making it easy to confuse the American and Canadian. If you get your hands on such a card, look for "WORLD WIDE GUM CO, LTD, MONTREAL" on the back.
This set's considerably rarer than Goudeys in the marketplace and advanced hobbyists bemoan the completion difficulty of a "master set," which includes all 94 cards with frequent (but not universal) English-only and English/French back variations. This mixed-language Babe Herman cost me about $20 on eBay in 2004, but is probably double that today, even in low grade.
