Kansas City Athletics Public Relations Director Jim Schaaf, from the scarce Topps Rookie All Star Banquet set, PSA, 9 MINT

This 35-card set was distributed to guests attending the annual dinner honoring the recipients of Topps' Rookie All-Star Team. The dinner took place at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel the evening of October 22, 1964.

Topps decided to abandon the traditional dinner program and instead produced this set, which was distributed as a special keepsake to attendees. Each card in the set is designed as if it were a "page" of a program and is sequentially-numbered in the lower right corner. Cards #8-12 feature composite photos of former award recipients from 1959 through 1963, while cards #13-34A highlight the 1964 winners (each player's picture card is paired with a separate card, written by the public relations director of the player's respective club, which lists his many achievements). Other cards are dedicated to Topps officials and various panel members.

This is one of the rarest card sets of the era and it is believed that fewer than 300 sets were printed.
