Overall the club enjoyed its golden era during the 1960s. Throughout this decade its men's basketball team won two Spanish Cups in 1964 and 1968 and was the runner-up of the Spanish League for three years in a row (1964–66) and in 1970, while its women's basketball reached the Spanish Cup's final in 1960 and was the following year the first Spanish team to enter the Women's Basketball European Cup after CD Cottet renounced for financial reasons, losing to Sportif Casablancais in the qualification round.
While Picadero is most remembered for its basketball teams, the club's baseball section was its most successful team in the international scene, winning the inaugural edition of the European Cup in 1963 and a second trophy five years later. Picadero's team handball team won four Spanish Leagues in a row between 1964 and 1967 and a fifth one in 1970, while its men's volleyball team won the first two editions of the Spanish League in 1965 and 1966. Picadero also had rink hockey, cycling and rugby teams.
The 1970s meant the beginning of the end for Picadero JC as the club collapsed financially. Picadero had to close most of its sections, and soon only the women's basketball team remained. However the team, known for sponsorship reasons as PICEFF Barcelona, Picadero Evax, Íntima Barcelona, Picadero Comansi and finally Natural Cus, experienced its golden years in this period, winning six Spanish Leagues between 1975 and 1983 and reaching the European Cup's quarter-final group stages in 1977 and 1979. In addition the team won seven national Cups, achieving doubles in 1975, 1978, 1980 and 1983. The 1985 Cup was its last national title and the team was also disbanded in 1989, ending Picadero JC's history.

Picadero Jockey Club is now a defunct sports club who had also basketball and handball teams. The commercial name was due to its main sponsor, S.A. Damm, a well-known Barcelona brewery.
