    Population one of one!

    1924 V122 Willard Chocolate Ty Cobb #39 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5.
    In 1924, Canada's Willard's Chocolate produced a set of trading cards featuring fifty-six "Sports Champions." Willard's pooled names of top athletes from many different sports, including tennis legend Bill Tilden, golfer Gene Sarazen and swimmer and surfing pioneer Duke Kahanamoku. The thin paper set would include three baseball players: Eddie Collins, Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth. The delicate paper stock, and staining from the confections with which the cards were originally packaged, has made the top of the PSA population chart a lonely place.

    This magnificent tribute to the Georgia Peach is the finest example known, with no equivalent or superior representation residing in either the population report of SGC or PSA. With sharp corners, clean surfaces and bold registration, this is a gorgeous rarity for the advanced Cobb collector.
