1960 Nu-Card Baseball Hi-LitesThis 72-card set of oversized (3-1/4" x 5-3/8") cards Issued by Nu-Card, Inc., featured baseball highlights 'Hi-Lites'. Printed in red and black, the card fronts resemble a newspaper's front page headline story with photo. The cards showcase some of the baseball's most interesting highlights in it's first 100 years of baseball.
The backs featured a trivia question and best of all they actually gave you the answer and then refered you to the card in the set with more info regarding the question.
Card #'s 1-18 can also be found in a scarcer blank-backed version with just black printing. They are quite rare and in 2 months on eBay out of approx 200 listings for 1960 Nu-Cards, ALL were of the red & black variety ! Other than #1 Ruth the black only cards are nearly identical to the black/red cards, differing only in the print color and the copyright. The black only cards had a copyright of “CVC” as opposed to the “NCI” (Nu-Card Inc.) on the black/red.

The first baseball trading cards date back to 1869. For many years, baseball cards were packaged in packs of tobacco as a way to increase sales the same way that today prizes are packaged in boxes of cereal. In the 1920's and 1930's, candy and gum companies started packaging baseball cards in their products as well.
Baseball card production was virtually halted in the early 1940's due to paper shortages created by World War II. The "Modern Era" of baseball cards began in 1948 when Bowman Gum Inc. offered one card and one piece of gum in a pack for a penny.
The first important football set was the Mayo set featuring college players in 1984. Other than the 1935 National Chicle set no other key football set was issued until 1948 when noth Bowman and Leaf produced sets.
