1963 Kahn’s Wieners Basketball Card Set and Checklist

Return to the Oddball Archive Index


Year: 1963

Title: Kahn’s Wieners

Size: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″

Number in Set: 13


Similar to the previous Kahn’s basketball sets (1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, and 1962), the 1963s feature Cincinnati Royals players, their coach (Jack McMahon), and Lakers star Jerry West.

The way to tell the 1963s apart from earlier releases is the white border around the black and white player photos on the front. Like before, the fronts also have facsimile autographs and Kahn’s slogan.

The backs are again unnumbered, featuring player vitals and a short bio.


In their 2021 Summer auction, Robert Edward Auctions sold the pictured PSA graded complete set of 1963 Kahn’s Wieners basketball cards for $2880.
