    1924 V122 Willard's Chocolate "Worlds Champions" Near Set (54/56) - With Ruth! This highly regarded series celebrated the greatest names of a multitude of sporting endeavors. Baseball, boxing, golf, tennis, swimming, track & field, wrestling, horse racing, football, lacrosse, bowling, cycling, and of course rugby, hockey plus others are represented. V122s are scarce in Canada, and other then a rare appearance by one of the four baseball subjects are extremely elusive in the United States. This series is almost never offered in quantity and to the best of our research this lot is the closest to a complete set ever offered. Missing #'s 4 and 39 for completion. An extremely nice example of #39 Ty Cobb is offered elsewhere in this auction. In total, 15 cards have been graded by SGC. Highlights include: Graded - SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 1 card, #10 Ederle; SGC 60 EX 5: 6 cards, #'s 6 Fear-Rugby, 15, 16, 41, 43 Watson-Hockey and 50; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 4 cards, #'s 3 Johnston, 31, 36 and 47 Smith-Hockey; SGC 40 VG 3: 2 cards, #'s 2 Collins-Baseball and 27 Tilden-Tennis; SGC 30 GD 2: 1 card, #20 Sarazen-Golf; SGC 10 PR 1: 1 card, #5 Babe Ruth.
