1933 WWG Ice Kings "English Back Only"

Does anyone know how rare the print is for the 1933 WWG Ice Kings with the English back compared to the French back? I have a Howie Morenz with a English back that has a total PSA pop of only 2 where the French version has 37 total cards. Thanks.

Damir,

I do not know for sure but here are my numbers -
I was able to collect all 72 cards of that set during 3-4 years time period
and I have 54 French and 18 English version cards - exactly 3 to 1 ratio

Thanks Elmar. I guess the best way is to see what a collector of the set has been able to accomplish gathering both versions.

So do you rate the English only backs at a higher value?

Supply and demand would say yes, but only comparable sales would be the true answer. Not sure if collectors of this set prefer one over the other.

No Bobby,

Based on what I paid, my competition with others, and also I have records of over 80 Ice Kings sales, I would say both versions are valued by collectors about the same.
