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.
While scarce, the photos/cards are not expensive. However, you could consider the Hal Greer and Connie Dierking cards rookies.
