Celebrating President's Day with the 1960 Golden Press US Presidents Trading Card Set


With today being President's Day, I thought it would be appropriate to share another vintage non-sport trading card set in my collection.  Featured here is my 1960 Golden Press US Presidents trading cards.  Better yet, my set remains uncut from the original book they were issued in.

Some collectors may already be familiar with the manufacturer.  They are more widely known for their production of a 1961 set featuring 33 Hall of Fame Baseball stars.  That set, like the President's set, was also originally made in book form, and the cards were perforated to allow for easy removal.

I have scanned both the front and reverse of each card.  As you can see, a short biography of each former President is on the back.  As always, click on any pic to embiggen.  Also, note that the pages at the very top is the front cover of the book, and the pics from the very bottom are the back cover of the book.  The cards on the covers are also perforated to allow for easy removal.
