Star Trek A visual compilation of all 88 trading cards for Star Trek fans and collectors of TV memorabilia!
Since Star Trek first aired on television in 1966, the series has had an incredible influence on pop culture. In 1976, with the show’s rising popularity in syndication, the Topps Company released a series of collectible trading cards featuring full-color images from the classic television series created by Gene Roddenberry, as well as synopses and stats on the cast and crew of the Starship Enterprise.
Sure to please both die-hard fans and new generations, this first-ever collection includes the fronts and backs of all 88 cards, plus images of 22 rare and hard-to-find stickers (which were originally sold one per pack) as well as text and commentary by Star Trek insiders Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann.
“If you’re like me, most of those cards are long gone by now, so I’ve loved the hardcover books devoted to the company’s various product lines.” —USA Today’s Pop Candy blog
Paula M. Block worked on the Star Trek franchise at Paramount Pictures and CBS for nineteen years and, with motion picture publicist Terry J. Erdmann, has written numerous books including Star Trek: The Original Series 365, Star Trek: The Next Generation 365, and Star Trek 101. They live in Oregon.
