    1924 V122 Willard Chocolate Hockey Players (4) Plus Very Rare Wrapper! Willards Chocolates was a Toronto based firm that produced a few sports theme sets in the mid-1920's. In 1924 the company produced a 56-card set showcasing athletes from various sports including, baseball, boxing, track and field and hockey. This presentation offers all four hockey subjects: #'s 43 Watson, 45 Collett, 47 Smith and 52 Munro. All four present nicely but were once housed in an album and have paper/glue residue affecting the top portion of the back of each card, Collett has creases. Also offered is a very rare two-color wrapper adorned with a somewhat crude drawing of a runner while promoting "A Picture in Every Bar" of "Willard's 'Sports' Nut Bar." The rarity of the wrapper explained by the chance to exchange 100 wrappers for "imported chain" for Girls and a "watch chain" for boys. The wrapper has fold lines as issued, plus area of paper damage along the left and right edges, the result of being opened. Despite condition flaws, the wrapper presents at the VG/EX level.
