1960 Kahn’s Wieners Basketball Card Set and Checklist

Return to the Oddball Archive Index


Year: 1960

Title: Kahn’s Wieners

Size: 3 1/4″ x 3 15/16″

Number in Set: 12


For their 1960 set, Kahn’s included LA Lakers star Jerry West in their 12-card set devoted to the Cincinnati Royals; collectors surmise because West grew up in the region. Like the previous years (1957, 1958, and 1959), the cards feature black-and-white photos, a facsimile autograph, and Kahn’s slogan on the front.

The backs are unnumbered and include a short bio and player statistics. However, the back of the West card uniquely consists of a longer biography and no statistics.

Like the other sets, Kahn’s inserted the cards one per package of hot dogs.

Key Cards

The set’s two key cards are Oscar Robertson and Jerry West; some collectors say the 1960 Kahn’s are their true rookie cards, predating their 1961 Fleer basketball cards.
