About this set: This Star Trek set, released by Topps in 1976, covers all three seasons of the Original Series that aired on television from 1966-1969. The set was created to promote the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979 which was a sequel to the television series that had 79 episodes. Card #1, featuring the U.S.S. Enterprise, is Mint 9 and it is considered the most valuable card in the set according to the SMR Price Guide and an out-of-print price guide known as Combo (issue #26 from 03/97). The second most valuable cards are #4, Science Officer Spock, and #85, The Trouble with Tribbles. Card #4 is Gem Mint 10. There are seven cards tied for the third most valuable position according to Combo. Card #59, Mirror Mirror, is Gem Mint 10 and it is one of the third most valuable cards. The higher priced cards are worth more than the other common cards in the set. One of these higher priced cards, card #36, Attacked by Spores, is also Gem Mint 10. There are 33 Gem Mint 10's in this set of 88 cards and 9 of them were self-submitted. Facts appear on the back of each card and there are no puzzles in this set. The front and back of each card are shown. Duplicate cards included in this set are designated with a "*" before the grade. I have Topps Vault Proof Cards (reverse sides only) for cards #2 and #4. Topps Vault Final Card Art Photos are shown for cards #8, #68, #81 and #86. In addition to these, there are 17 autographed cards shown that have been certified by PSA/DNA. Most notably, the first card is signed by William Shatner and the last card is signed by Leonard Nimoy. Card #8 is signed by Shatner and Nimoy, card #57 is signed by William Shatner and there are two signed Sean Kenney (Captain Pike) cards for #50. With the exception of the James Doohan autograph on card #5, I personally obtained all of the autographs on the cards at Star Trek conventions and celebrity shows in Hollywood, Burbank, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Although Topps did not include Sulu in this set, I obtained George Takei's autograph on cards #13 and #16. Nichelle Nichols' autograph is on card #6 and Walter Koenig's autograph is on card #7. Besides the regular cast members, I also have autographs from Clint Howard (Balok), Gary Lockwood (Gary Mitchell), Eddie Paskey (Lt. Leslie), Bobby Clark (The Gorn) and Lawrence Montaigne (Decius). The autographed cards in this set are highlighted with red borders and they are among my favorites. Some of the signed cards in this set were featured in a article inside the August 2013 issue of Sports Market Report. I also have a 1976 Star Trek sticker set on the PSA Registry to compliment this mint set of cards that was the first to reach an average of 9.00 or better in 2009. PSA subsequently awarded this set as the Best Modern Non-Sports Set of the Year in 2009. Dedicated to my loving grandmother, Imogene "Nanny" Barbieri, and Star Trek fans everywhere.
