1963 Sugardale Wieners Baseball Card Set and Checklist

Return to the Oddball Archive Index


Year: 1963

Title: Sugardale Wieners

Size: 3-3/4″ by 5-1/8″

Number in Set: 31


A follow-on to their 22-card 1962 release, Sugardale grew their regionally-released 1963 set of baseball cards to 31. This year, they included 28 Cleveland Indians players and 5 Pittsburgh Pirates players.

The black-and-white 1963 Sugardale Wieners cards are almost identical to the 1962 release, with the only significant difference being that the player biographies mention the 1962 season.

Robert Edward Auctions sold a complete set of 31 cards, five proof cards (squared corners), and a pair of Sugardale napkins for $7200 in their 2018 fall auction.

Key Cards

Sugardale withdrew the Bob Skinner and Jim Perry cards from distribution after June trades, so they’re considered short prints and the toughest (and most expensive) cards to find in the set.


The Indians’ cards are numbered 1 to 33, with cards 6, 21, 22, 29, and 32 never being issued. Pirates cards are lettered A to E.
