    1963 Topps Rookie All-Star Team Awards Program. Beginning in 1959, Topps held a banquet to honor the year's top rookie stars as voted on by their major league peers. Here we present the souvenir program from the fifth annual awards ceremony held in 1963. This banquet took place during an era when Topps often put multiple up-and-coming stars on the same card due to the fact that their issues at the time were comprised of less than 600 cards. Due to this Pete Rose's premier card from the '63 Topps issue is shared with three other players with none of them represented with an image larger than a dime. In the program the players are each given a single page with a bio and statistics. Also included is an image, about the size of a standard Topps trading card, created to imitate the style of the '63 Topps issue. So here we can see what Topps' Pete Rose rookie may have looked had he been given his own card. Possibly due to a modest crowd in attendance at the Waldorf-Astoria these programs are a tough find, and many will clamor to own this rarity Pete Rose memento that hints at what could have been. The program is in excellent condition and is devoid of any major condition issues.
