1958 Syracuse Nationals Basketball Card Set and Checklist

Return to the Oddball Archive Index


Year: 1958

Title: Syracuse Nationals

Size: 8 1/2″ x 10″

Number in Set: 11


I believe the 1958 Syracuse Nationals basketball card set was a team issue of glossy photos. Beckett wrote that the prints sold for 25 cents, or $2 for the entire set of 11.

The fronts feature a black and white posed image of each player with their name, age, height, weight, hometown, and college underneath. The backs are blank and unnumbered.

Huggins and Scott Auctions sold a complete set and the original mailer that held the photos for $150 in 2015.
