Being "Frank" – Collecting the 1955 to 1969 Kahn’s Wieners Baseball Card Sets
There aren’t many regional sets that were issued for more than a year or two. However, the Kahn’s baseball sets were distributed annually from 1955-1969. These sets offer top names, rarity, condition sensitivity, and beautiful images. What more could collectors want? SMR delves deeper into this very question in the following piece.

The 1957 Swift Meats Baseball Set – A Truly Quirky Entry in the World of Die-Cut, Punch-Out Baseball Cards
Are you tired of plain, old rectangular sports cards? Do you feel the need to "beef up" your vintage collection? If you answered "yes" to either one of these questions, then the 1957 Swift Meats baseball set might be just what you need! Learn more in the following article about this unique, 18-card set which was produced by Swift Meats, a Chicago-based meat-packing company.

Franks and Football – Collecting the 1959 to 1964 Kahn’s Wieners Football Card Sets
Not to be outdone by their hardball contemporaries, the 1959-1964 Kahn’s football sets are cardboard treasures from the Golden Age of the NFL. Classic sets that include Jim Brown, Bobby Layne, Johnny Unitas, Lombardi’s Packers, and a host of other pigskin legends make these cards greatly desired by hobbyists.
