What do you get when you cross an iconic TV character with A legendary American car? Only the coolest autographed photo ever!
The other week I just couldn’t resist the offer to buy this autographed photo of Leonard from his internet store LLAP. This is classic Americana! A grand shot of Nimoy on the Paramount parking lot posing in his Spock gear with his newly acquired 1963 Buick Riviera Gran Sport! I bet he loved that car. I remember a friend of our family had one, and we were in awe of how the headlights had magic shutters that opened and closed at your command! The license plate reads PDL 257 — I think the PDL stands for “Pretty Darn Logical!”
The photo was one of 50 being offered, freshly signed by Nimoy himself with a silver marker. 🙂 I got a little fan-girly when I got it, suddenly realizing that he had held this picture (insert silly squeal). It’s a nice little memento and a great picture. The envelope it came in also included a little printed thank you and a bonus baseball card-sized autographed pic of the famous shot from Amok Time of Spock giving the Vulcan salute. Not sure if that autograph was applied by Nimoy or a machine (it appears to be black marker) but what a nice little bonus! Thanks Mr. Nimoy!

Absolutely the coolest picture in the universe. Thank you for sharing.
*smile* Glad you’re enjoying your picture!
I bought one of the “Vulcan Hand” pictures about a year ago — it’s a photograph of Leonard Nimoy’s hand in the Vulcan salute that he made famous. The photo was taken by Mr. Nimoy, altered in the darkroom to look mysterious by Mr. Nimoy, then signed by Mr. Nimoy, so I think of it as a “quadruple Nimoy.” 🙂
I’ve seen that — it’s intentionally distorted but you can tell it’s his hand. That’s cool too!
And as you said, the coolest thing about these pictures is that HE held them. Are we crazed fangirls or what? 😉
I would have gotten the same picture you did, but Shop LLAP wasn’t yet carrying them at the time I bought the hand one. Oh, well. The hand is fun, too.
Right back at ya, Cory! 🙂

Trying to find this signed photo, does anyone know where to get one ?
They may still have these at ShopLLAP, but I got just before his passing . You could try eBay too. Good Luck!
