Title: Kahn’s Wieners
Size: 3 3/16″ x 3 15/16″
Number in Set: 11
Kahns inserted the basketball cards in their hot dog packages for the first time in 1957. The company was established in Cincinnati and is still headquartered there (Tyson Foods is their parent company), so it follows that all 11 cards are of Cincinnati Royals players.
Each card features a black and white photo on the front, with a facsimile autograph and Kahn’s slogan along the bottom. The backs feature a basketball “How to” tip and are unnumbered.
PSA has graded 141 cards from this set, with Jack Twyman having the most graded examples with 28 and Tom Marshall the fewest with only 5. That said, catalogs often list Maurice Stokes as the most expensive card in the set.
