1958 Kahn’s Wieners Basketball Card Set and Checklist

Return to the Oddball Archive Index


Year: 1958

Title: Kahn’s Wieners

Size: 3 1/4″ x 3 15/16″

Number in Set: 10


For the second time, Kahn’s released a basketball set; packaged with their hot dogs. This time 10, instead of 11 Cincinnati Royals players were included.

The cards still featured black-and-white player photos on the front along with a facsimile autograph and Kahn’s slogan along the bottom.

But this time, the backs featured a thought from the player about their “greatest thrill in basketball.” The set’s cards remained unnumbered.
