Default 1940 Kemmel Chocolate

Anyone know anything about this set? I have a bunch, and have requested PSA put the set on their registry, but they don't have a checklist, and neither do I.
Mine were picked up from the recent listings of PSA graded ones on ebay - obviously PSA knows about all the ones it has graded.

1940 Kemmel Chocolate is an 80-card series of boxers from France. Cards are chocolate premiums.

PSA lists them under European Cards.

1940 Kemmel Chocolate

Standard PSA grade is PSA 2/3/4, with only several cards graded higher.

Here is my PSA 4 Primo Carnera: (pop of 2, none graded higher)

Most are not boxers - tennis, cycling, track, and possibly other sports are featured. I've checklisted 61 of the 80 so far (obviously including the 50 different PSA has graded), but that's nowhere near enough for them to launch a registry set. Based on pictures I have seen, there may be a significant number of PSA 4-6 quality cards out there that just haven't been submitted (likely because they're never leaving the owner's PC).

I stand corrected. Would be nice to see a complete checklist for the set. I think the set is made up of 2 series, A & B, each 40 cards. I suspect the far majority of the cards are still in France. Since it isn't a tobacco issue, the set probably hasn't receive the attention that is should.
