Sneak Peek at Art and Images of Star Trek

Believe it or not, this is the very first set EVER to encompass all 79 episodes of the classic Star Trek in a single card series. In addition to the incredible imagery covering those 79 episodes, Rittenhouse has captured and remastered artwork from all 61 original Gold Key comic books which began its run in 1967. And to really round things out, artist/illustrator John Czop has created more than 3 dozen original renderings of characters in the style of the 1973-74 Star Trek animated series. All of these renderings are interpretations of characters, including Ensign Chekov, Yeoman Rand, Khan, Edith Keeler, The Gorn and many more, made famous in the classic live-action version of the show but who never appeared in the actual animated series. Sample Autographs There will also be 2 signed cards per box, with many key actors signing cards: Leonard Nimoy (Mirror Spock), Ricardo Montalban (Khan), Joan Collins (Edith Keeler), Kathy Hays (Gem), Yvonne Craig (Marta), Walter Koenig (Chekov), Grace Lee Whitney (Rand) and many others. Finally, as an added bonus, Rittenhouse has included a unique series of sketch cards featuring imagery from each of the show's 29 first-season episodes. These very limited sketch cards will be inserted at an average rate of one in every 2 boxes.
