The recently released Star Trek 50th Anniversary set includes plenty of ink with two autographs and a memorabilia card in every box but there are some interesting surprises inside the product as a whole.
Each 12-box case is guaranteed to include one of five Captain’s Autograph cards from the five leaders at the helm on each of the past TV shows — William Shatner as James T. Kirk, Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, Avery Brooks as Benjamin Sisko, Kate Mulgrew as Kathryn Janeway and Scott Bakula as Jonathan Archer.
But that’s not all of note in this one if you look closely at the checklist.
Is there one non-sports autograph you’d want to own? If you’re a fan of anything beyond the sports world, there’s probably one name that comes to mind first.
In some cases — Star Wars and Star Trek, for example — a personality may have plenty of autographs, but in others there may be just one.
Or none at all.
