2006 Rittenhouse Star Trek TOS 40th Anniversary Series 1 Trading Cards

2006 Rittenhouse Star Trek TOS 40th Anniversary Series 1 is one of several sets honoring the franchise hitting the birthday normally reserved for a mid-life crisis. The product has a deep checklist that includes autographs and several other inserts both common and not-so-common.

The base set consists of 110 cards. All images will be taken from the show's first season (that's part of where the multiple-set concept comes in).

If you're going for a master base set, there's 111 cards as #58 has a variation. The intended card shows Spock. The other one has Nurse Chapel. Both are available in approximately the same quantities so one doesn't carry a premium over the other.

Autographs are the cornerstone of the chase. They use the long-standing design that dates back to the days when SkyBox held the Star Trek license. Leonard Nimoy, Joan Collins, George Takei and Majel Barrett are among the top stars on the checklist. Two autograph cards inserted in every box of 2006 Rittenhouse Star Trek TOS 40th Anniversary Series 1.

These aren't the only autographs in the product. Creator Gene Roddenberry's signature is included on 25 Archives Cuts cards. Rittenhouse used checks acquired from the Roddenberry estate to make the cards.

The final autograph in packs is a Gene Roddenberry Tribute cards. It's signed by his son, Eugene Roddenberry Jr, on the back.

Bridge Crew Delta Shield patch cards are manufactured relics. Each has a patch designed to look like the ones worn on uniforms embedded in them. Inserted 1:200 packs, each is numbered to 350 copies.

Several of the other inserts in 2006 Rittenhouse Star Trek TOS 40th Anniversary Series 1 go back to the show's earliest days. The pilot episode, The Cage is highlighted in 1967 Star Trek Expansion. These are done to mimic the look of the first set of Star Trek trading cards, which were produced by Leaf some four decades earlier.

Pike and another character from The Cage, Vina, each get their own insert set as well. The Captain Pike set has nine cards with one landing every 14 packs. The Many Faces of Vina is smaller at six cards. However, they're a little tougher to find at 1:20 packs.

Star Trek Portraits is a fairly tough set to complete. It has 18 cards, each highlighting a different character. What makes it challenging is the one-per-box rate in which they appear.

Quotable Star Trek expands the base set from a couple of years earlier. The 18 new cards carry on from where the original numbering left off.

2006 Rittenhouse Star Trek TOS 40th Anniversary Series 1 trading cards released with a print run of 9,000 boxes.
