In 1959 Kahn's Wieners launched a marketing campaign to promote the sale of their hot dogs. Included in some of the hot dog packages were football cards. Due to the nature of the product, many of the cards were stained and/or warped from contact with the hot dogs. The cards are difficult to find as it is; and specimens in excellent condition or better are extremely rare.

Offered here is a partial (22/31) 1959 Kahn's football set from the inaugural year of the promotion (Kahn's would produce football cards for the next five years). The cards from this lot are extremely clean, showing little to no evidence that they once shared a package with hot dogs. Four of the examples have graded by PSA including HOFer's Jack Butler (PSA 4.5), Mike McCormack (PSA 4) and Bobby Mitchell (PSA 5). Jim Ray Smith has been graded as a PSA 5. Using the previous PSA graded cards as a guide, we have conservatively assigned grades (and make no promises regarding how any other third party will assess the cards) to the remaining 18 cards: Lew Carpenter (VG-EX+), Preston Carpenter (VG-EX+), Vince Costello (EX), Dale Dodrill (EX-MT), Bob Gain (EX), Gary Glick (VG-EX+), Billy Howton (EX), Art Hunter (EX+), Joe Krupa (EX), Walt Michaels (EX), Jim Ninowski (VG-EX), Jimmy Orr (EX+), Milt Plum (VG-EX), Ray Renfro (VG-EX), Mike Sandusky (VG+), Billy Ray Smith (EX-MT), Tom Tracy (EX), Frank Varrichione (EX+).

Please see scans and contact us with any questions regarding specific cards.
