    Very solid set since PSA 9's have gone up 3-5 times what they were a few years ago. I don't think that there will ever be an answer as to why they were pulled, but the licensing story does come up usually but there is no evidence of that. The show did not do that well when it first came on so it's possible the cards didn't do that well for the same reason and maybe they were pulled just because people didn't buy them. Whatever the fact may be, it's a very tough high grade set and it will go nowhere but up in the coming years.
  • I like to go with the licensing issue, otherwise they have no excuse for the crazy stories on the back of the cards! LOL!!

    Thank you! Yes, I like that episode as well! I finally got the TV set on blu ray, can't wait to see Kirk battle a Gorn once again!
  • Just like TOS, this thread is dying quickly. However, it will rise in popularity and live on in syndication.....................

    Don't feel too bad, people just don't want to collect a very rare set with prices rising constantly. I'm sure Trekies have their own forum.

    Ha! Thank you! I'll share one last item. In 2008 Donruss took a authentic 1967 Leaf set, had Shatner sign 1 card for all 72 cards, then they stamped them 1/1. I have found 2 so far, #33 and #72. I think that was a great idea by Donruss, and glad Shatner agreed.

    Awesome autos. The way these cards have gone up I could see a very big future for them. I hate to even think it, but when we start losing these guys there will be fewer of these to go around so you bought at a great time, just like when I bought my PSA 9's for $400 each a few years ago. I think the new movies and a possible new series for TV has took the franchise to another level.

    Thank you!! I concur with your asessment! Ha! All the new Trek, keeps it alive going. I was googling and I found a auction from 2009 for a PSA 9 shore leave, sold $119. BOOM! Can you believe it???? Congrats on $400, that's great! I am not concerned with being number 1 on the registry. I just want a set of minimum PSA 8, with a few 8.5's here and there, and 1-3 PSA 9's. Someday a box and a wrapper. That would be simply amazing when that day arrives!
  • Hello,

    Here is my contribution:

    image

    All vintage Star Trek set. Earliest signature forms I have seen for Kirk/Spock/McCoy on Trek material. The Shatner is 1967/68 as well as the Spock and McCoy (those are Fan Club 5x7's). Now completed with 1968 Majel Barrett (in b/w) and several Langley & Assoc. publicity lithographs which are not shown here. I know, I need better scans, but this is what I have on hand. Anyone else have vintage signatures?
    Took me about 10 years to get this where I want it. As many in character signatures as I could get - the Kelley/McCoy was signed and dedicated to the on set nurse. The whole set obtained from eBay for very little $ apart from the Scotty which I bought in NYC from a dealer friend. I have met these folks as well image
    Authentication by yours truly.

  • Wow! What great auto's! What a great background and story!!! Congrats!!! That made this thread worth wile!! Thank you!!!


  • << <i>Wow! What great auto's! What a great background and story!!! Congrats!!! That made this thread worth wile!! Thank you!!! >>



    Hello,

    Thanks :-) I am glad you enjoyed it. I have not seen anything like it. Probably because I buy the earliest I find continually. I have many stories I could tell about meeting them.
    One of the times I met Leonard Nimoy was after a performance of Barrymore in NYC in 1997 or so. That was Christopher Plummer's play. I was waiting to talk with Plummer and Walter Cronkite was there. So I was talking with Cronkite and I turned around and my face went into Nimoy's chest. I looked up and without thinking I said "Spock!" in Shatner's/Kirk's gasp/surprised voice with the quick in-breath right before the word. Nimoy laughed quite heartily and we walked down the street talking about his Spock and staying in character over the weekend back in the old days. We exchanged the Vulcan greeting and that was awesome. So, that was Spock and Chang at once. image
    I had Doohan sign a set of Trek blueprints.
    I once tried to get De Kelley to sign a prescription pad, but that is...another story.
    Shatner had a sign that said not to touch him. I just offered my hand and thanks for the fun as a kid and he shook it with a smile. Another time I saw them together at the 25th tour I think, and they were trading questions off. Shatner was bemoaning a lack of questions for him. I raised my hand - he picked on me - "Finally, a question for me" - I said "Uh, actually I was asking Mr. Nimoy" - this got much laughter. Shatner said "Fine, fine!" and to steal attention he started doing pushups while Nimoy was speaking. That was in my Newsday.
    I have also met Patrick Stewart. I have his signature on a playbill and it is available.
    Same for the signed vintage poetry book about Trek that you could only get from Kelley in person at a convention, but that is not cheap! image He self published it. Quite nice - have you ever seen one?

    The first episode I saw was with the Gorn. This would be about 1974? What got you interested? Do you agree with me that ST:TMP is the best of the movies, along with The Undiscovered Country? I can not stand what this new franchise has done. There was a reason they hit that $ ceiling with the films. In order to break the ceiling, the broke the darn show. I don't give a...hoot...for this new timeline crap. A whole new universe, "a whole new approach!" to quote Dr. Daystrom, and there is Khan already. LAME. My fav orig. episode is The Immunity Syndrome I think.

    Best wishes,
    Eric

    PS: It is pathetic how many folks think these are not genuine. They just don't know the early forms! Of course, this keeps the bidding down. I won my previous Kelley on eBay for $3. image

    PSS: FYI, the McCoy is inscribed "To Doris, you are the best nurse I have ever known. Dr. McCoy Thanks!!!" Finding him signing only the name McCoy is tough - never saw another. I had the 8x10 that went with it but it went on about pulling down his pants (for a shot) everytime he saw her and I did not think it appropriate for my collection. Its sale paid for the 5x7 image
  • Wow! That is a great story!! Amazing! Was Shatner serous with the sign? LOL!! Very funny. That guy cracks me up with everything he does. I have never seen the poetry book, if it isn't to much to ask, scan it and post it. It's ok if you don't, no biggie. What got me interested? I saw some reruns around 1980, I was 8 yrs old, wasn't sure what I was watching, but like Star Wars, I was hooked. Then asking my mom, she told me all about it. So when Star Trek II WOK came out, when I was 10, I went to it. So that is my fav movie, as it was my first Trek movie. A great time for me with Star Wars and Star Trek 1980-1990!! I couldn't get enough of James T Kirk! And I still can't!

    Do you think you will get these slabbed by PSA/DNA?? Just wondering your thoughts on that subject. It's not needed to get them slabbed, just wondering.

    Wow, the dropping pants story is funny. Man, thanks again for the awesome post!!!

    You are welcome! image
    Oh, I loved ST2. I was in 7th grade I think. I used to know it word for word.
    I would never bother getting them slabbed. There is just no need. With advanced collectors, they won't need it either. I am a small dealer of over a decade and have never had a return for any reason at all. I offer no COA - just my word and experience. Have sold Lugosi, Garland, Leigh - all the usually forged names. I do my own authentication. I have seen too much bad material passed, and too much good material rejected, by shall we say...auction houses, simply because folks do not know what Edward G. Robinson or Bette Davis signatures looked like in 1940. They think they are secretarial. 80% of all 5x7 from that golden period are, but some...are not.
    One can use "extra" funds to buy...more autographs! Opinions...I have one. And, after many, many years and much observation (and a fairly photographic memory and good use of software and a database), I trust it.

    Best wishes,
    Eric

    One last post. I watched all of the original series on network TV and have seen all the movies, good and bad. My two boys never got into it, but my daughter was a big Deep Space 9 and Next Generation fan and has also seen all the movies. She even learned Klingon and would constantly speak it around the house

  • Found what I always wanted! An empty box! Oh wow!!! Check it out on my webpage below! Someday hope to find a wrapper. I like the star trek box, I like the top of the box with kirk/spock and the enterprise. And how ironic, the word "official", when they had so many problems!
  • Please see my original comment that is edited for a new website to blog at! Thank you!

    Hello to all!!! I created a website for 1967 Leaf Star Trek at weebly.com. Please post a comment on the blog about what Star Trek, and/or Star Wars means to you. Anything at all on those two subjects!! Thank you.

    What do you guys think of the NBC original photos PSA/DNA slabbed on Ebay right now. Not sure what a good price would be for them or how rare they are.


  • << <i>What do you guys think of the NBC original photos PSA/DNA slabbed on Ebay right now. Not sure what a good price would be for them or how rare they are. >>




    They are rare, and rare in this nice condition. I would love to have 1 or 2 of them, but they are over priced. In a standard 7-10 day no reserve auction I can see $100-$150. Raw under $50. But the confirmation of being type I, and condition, slabbed $100-$150. I bid $150 on one of them and it was instantly rejected. Perhaps, in time, cosigner will figure this out.

  • Wow! Thank you for the great post!!! Amazing!!!!
  • For anyone interested I have the second DE Kelley self-published poem. The one had only gave out at conventions - "The Dream Goes on" if anyone interested. Signed/rare. Calligraphy by wife Carolyn. B/W stapled binding. Near Mint.

    Has anyone opened any of the 1997 or 1998 Skybox TOS packs? I see the auto cards sell for a big premium. Just wondering how many packs and cards per pack there are. Are they hard to find and what would be a fair price for a sealed box. Thanks
  • Finally got my first 1967 Leaf Star Trek PSA 9! Check it out on my webpage below! Also, check my OCD description of it on the "prices/market value" page. Hahahaha sometimes OCD serves me well in the collecting world............

    Hey dude! How's it going??? I hope you enjoy the auto book you bought from me. I imagine you bought the type I photos that were on ebay? If you did, good job, nice pick ups!! Sorry, I don't know the values of the boxes. But the auto cards raw can sell anywhere from $100-$450 depending on the actor and which series. Graded BGS can sell in the same price range, depending on the actor and which series. At least graded, you know what you get. If you notice the most sought after Shatner BGS 9 10 auto is on ebay at $998 BIN. I sold that card in a 7 day auction no reserve for $430. So you can see the seller is a bit high.........Season 1 is the most sought after, and some are single print/short print, like the Shatner. If it was me, I'd only get season 1.

    If you want, check out the type I photo Shatner auto on my link below! Its currently at psa/dna, I'll share it when its done.

    Love the auto book and congrats on the PSA 9. I was lucky enough to buy the #1 card a few years ago in a PSA 9. Could possibly be the only #1 PSA 9 ever. The 1st series (season 1) would be a great addition and I'm just doing as much research as possible before jumping into it.
    I did buy the Type1 photos off Ebay and there were more that he had. I got a total of 8 and all I need is to send one ungraded/authenticated piece in. It's the starship by itself. Got them all for a good discount so I'm very happy.
    Is your Shatner photo coming back as a Type1 or as an auto grade or both?
  • Hey Tomi! Good deal on your #1 PSA 9!! maybe you can post a pic of it??? if not, that's ok! Glad you like the book, its awesome, wish I could have kept it. However, I will keep the Shatner 8x10 auto! Yes, I have it being authenticated for type I photo, and auto authentic. When I get a pic of it, when its done, I will post it here.........I can't wait!!! Probably will be awhile yet. I figured you got the type I's! ha! Good job!! That is a great lot to buy! Well, see ya later! Take care!
