What is a good first card to start with?

What kind of card for hubby?  He has auto loans but no cc, so he will need a card to get started.  What should he get with scores in the mid 600's

Starter card from Capital 1 (secured) or a card from Orchard.

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!
