    1921 V61 Nielsen's Chocolate Baseball Near Set (118/120) - With Schang Back Variation. Neilson's Chocolates are an extremely rare entry to find anywhere close to complete. Neilson's come in two formats, fragile paper cards and these, the thicker card stock variety commonly known as "Type 2." This presentation is a very rare chance to acquire a 118-card near set of this Canadian release. Most hobbyists only contemplate an attempt to assemble a complete set due to the severe lack of availability north or south of the border. Key players featured are Ruth, W. Johnson and Hornsby. Missing Cobb and Goslin for completion. Many middle grade cards present much nicer but only have a very slight condition issue. A few cards have paper adhered to the reverse. The Wally Schang is unique in that the first line of the reverse is indented and extends off the opposite edge which is different from the standard reverse layout. A nicer looking set than the grade break down would suggest. In total, 26 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded - SGC 84 NM 7: 2 cards, w/Griffith and Wambsganss; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards, w/Clemons and Hooper; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 card, Lavan; SGC 60 EX 5: 11 cards, w/Bancroft, Bohne, Cheeves, Falk, Hargrave, B. Miller, Parkinson, Roush, Schang (Uncatalogued back), Sheely, Wrightstone; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 5 cards, w/E. Collins, Faber, Frisch, Hoyt and Wheat; SGC 40 VG 3: 3 cards, w/Alexander, Luque and Sisler; SGC 10 PR 1: 2 cards, w/Johnson and Babe Ruth. Ungraded - including: Carey (VG), Haines (VG/EX), Heilmann (VG), Hornsby (PR), Kelly (GD/VG), Maranville (VG) and Youngs (GD). Grades 16% EX to EX/MT with two NM, 58% VG to VG/EX, 26% GD to GD/VG (some lesser).
