Wiener Week! - Day 4

Kahn's is a meat processing and distribution company, famous for their hot dogs, founded and based in Cincinnati. They started making baseball cards in 1955 and continued into the late 1960's, focusing mostly on the Reds. In 1987 they re-introduced a Cincinnati Reds team set and have been producing a Reds set every year since. In honor of Kahn's, the Reds, and wieners, I proudly present an entire week dedicated to most phallic of foods and its Freudian presence in my collection.

Day 4 - 2009

As you can see, this year The Weenie Conglomerate decided to try a photoshoppy blur/fade to simulate movement. Check out the bursting-through-the-card athleticism of Dusty Baker. He's like a young Mickey Mantle.

Geez this was only four years ago and I have virtually no memory of a lot of these guys.

Sweet Votto, the only redeeming card of this set, I think. Oh, and the Adam Rosales. Totally. 

Go Reds.


  1. This would've been a really nice set if they didn't do the funky blurry photo thang.

    1. Yeah. Someone at Kahn's found a neat photoshop button and got a little too excited about it.
