The Daily Scrapbook 10/5/12

Here’s today’s flashback:   In the upper corner is a portion of a magazine ad for Nimoy’s first book of poetry, You And I.  He  was really starting to branch out creatively in this period, poetry, photography and stage acting kept him busy, along with occasional game shows and guest appearances on shows like Columbo. The reason the ad was truncated was because the photo (of only Nimoy from the neck up) gave the impression that he wasn’t wearing a shirt (!) Somehow this embarrassed me, and I cut out the bottom section of the ad and kept the rest.    Maybe it was my Catholic upbringing, but I guess I didn’t want my Mom to see this ‘flagrant’ display of sensuality, lest she take away all my Trek stuff!  Silly me.  I’ll have to see if I can find a full copy of the ad somewhere, it really wasn’t a big deal.   Next to and beneath the ad is another paragraph about the possible Trek movie, and another chunk of of another Trek article.
And then these are 6 stamps that I bought at the Star Trek Bi-Centennial 10 Convention in 1976 with the familiar logo ‘Star Trek Lives” and Support Star Trek on each, with a dollar bill style portrait of a crew member on each.   Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, and Chekov.   How could they forget Sulu?  Unless having six made it mathematically easier to print.  I had a about 20 of these in a half page, but stuck most of them on notebooks and such.  Glad I saved these six–wonder if anyone else has them?  Note: The actual stamps measure only 3/4″ by 1 1/4″, but they were scanned here for better detail. Also, on the original scrapbook page, they’re arranged differently, but here I lined them up.  Nice, huh?   More scrapbook stuff on Monday!

  1. I have these six stamps. They are encapsulated. They were my husbands. I guess he got them from professional stamp experts. I have been trying to find more of these and came across your site. Need to find out how much they are worth. Seem to be very rare.
