1960 Nu-Card Hi-Lites Baseball Cards
The 1960 Nu-Card Hi-Lites Baseball Card Set contains 72 cards measuring 3 1/4" x 5 3/8". The Nu-Card Hi-Lites cards feature black and white player photos on the front with black and red text.
The style is that of a newspaper, made to look as if it's a news story highlighting an important moment in baseball history. This set is closely related to the other Nu-Cards Scoops issue, as the cards look very similar. Even some of the subject matter is repeated within both sets. However, the Scoops cards are much smaller in size.
The 1960 Hi-Lites card backs feature a trivia question in green and black text. In the middle of the card there is the image of a baseball diamond with the words, "It's fun, save the entire series."
Some of the key Hall-of-Famers included in this issue are: #1 Babe Ruth Hits 3 Homers In A Series Game - Babe Ruth, #22 Mantle Hits Longest Homer - Mickey Mantle, #39 Ted Williams Hits .406 for Season - Ted Williams and #50 Mantle Hits Longest Homer At Stadium - Mickey Mantle.
