Star Trek Leaf - 1967
Notes: This series was withdrawn from distribution shortly after its first release, which makes it extremely hard to find. Top-grade examples of card #1 are worth hundreds of U.S. dollars, partly because the thin-stock cards were easy to damage. Beware of unmarked reprint cards; the most common of these is slightly smaller than the originals, the images are blurry, and the finish is not glossy (but see below). A still unauthorized but more-honest reprint set bears a copyright date of 1981 and is marked "reprint." Thanks much to Joe Burkey for the checklist! American Card Catalog reference is R734-10. Scans are posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery. There is a "real" and "authorized" additional version of the cards. At the time of original printing, the cards were also printed for distribution in Europe. The cards were not released because of complications of the Desilu contract with Leaf, but uncut sheets that appear to be those cards were discovered in a warehouse by Dan Kremer Imports. Kremer was granted permission by Paramount to liquidate these sets, and he produced numbered sets with a Certificate of Authenticity. With this provenance, you could be reasonably confident that these cards were not unauthorized reprints. The CoA states, "Upon examination, The European set exhibits the following differences to their American counterpart. The European sets were never gloss coated (very few European cards were ever gloss coated). The cutting was poorer than the American edition (the cutting machines in Europe were early outdated cutters from the U.S.) The camera work is slightly poorer (again, inferior cameras)." Thanks much to A Prezioso and Lynne Stewart for the information!
