The 1933 World Wide Gum baseball cards were printed in two different variations: English only and French and English. Today, the French and English versions are slightly more expensive than the English only cards. The Goudey Gum Company was located in Boston, so at their peak of gum card manufacturing, they opened a factory in Granby, Quebec. Because World Wide Gum printed both English as well as English and French, it is suspected that these cards were sold in different parts of Canada based on local language preferences.

The 1933 World Wide Gum baseball card complete set was difficult to find, especially considered the small market in which it was released. The basic idea of this set would be repeated, as demonstrated by the O-Pee-Chee sets, but it is still fascinating to see one of original bilingual sets.
