OK, I am down to 6 subjects with no information. Can anyone help fill in the checklist of the "small only" cards above #96 (the number in the black circle on back). Hoping to complete this sucker when I revise my Topps book next year:

97, 98, 108, 111, 120, 125.  One is Lou Gehrig, just not sure of number.

Need better scans of #110. but as I know the other four Airplanes in the subset above #96, it's 12 of 15.
Would need front and back scans-thanks!


EDIT #100 and 110 ID'd, see below-thanks Bill O.! 

I mis-ID'd a few as well, all fixed now. Thanks Matt Z!

I could also use good front and back scans of #113 Amelia Earhart.

Similar to Bill, it's not a set I'm familiar with but if the cards in the link below are from the same set then 3 of the numbers in your list are baseball subjects:
#109 Ed Mathews
#117 Babe Ruth
#122 Karl Spooner

Geez, quite right-I had them misidentified in my spreadsheet! Fixing that and then the above post.  I'm getting  there then, maybe a half dozen left-thanks!

OK, scans coming of five missing subjects plus a better scan of another, I am down to needing two ID'd still it looks like: 97 and 111 and better front and back scans of #113. Almost there!

I'm still shy the back information for the Gehrig, it's either #97 or #111 and hoping someone has a scan of the reverse, the ones mentioned above for those numbers never turned up unfortunately. 

I am also one World Leader subset subject away from completing the full 126 card checklist, which has been incomplete for the last 65 years, it's whatever number (97 or 111) Gehrig isn't, so any help there appreciated as well! An Earhart back scan would also be something I need but I can infer her subset number once the missing subject's reverse is ID'd.
