An insanely rare item only given at the banquet at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC October 22, 1964. There is the foil covered outer box which contains a booklet with lists of past honorees and then one page for each of the 1964 recipients and an over-sized card set detailing how the awards are chosen, cards for each prior "class" and then an individual card for each 1964 recipient.

While the outer box shows some wear and discoloration, it did it's job. The booklet has some light scuffing to the cover where it rubs when being taken in and out of the box, but the cards are in fantastic shape with only light signs of wear on some of them, many NM/MT or better. They are slightly toned. The worst condition is the cover card which has corner wear and a light water stain and grades VG. The next 3 cards have decreasingly smaller water stains in the upper right corner. The cards are literally card versions of the booklet pages and are number with page numbers in the lower right

The cards are sen as singles occasionally. Less often you see a complete set with the box. You never see a truly complete set with box, booklet and all cards, let alone in this condition.
