1934 World Wide Gum Baseball #79, Larry French

This card made me smile for two reasons.

First, it's a nice vintage design, down to the Lou Gehrig quote and the backset baseball diamond.

Second, it's Larry French. World Wide Gum, Co. licensed this 1934 Goudey design for Canadian distribution, which also meant translating card backs. (The #5 is Brooklyn's Babe Herman.)

French in French! I'm easy to please. Any amusing cards you've seen lately?
