Have You Seen This Incredible Trek Auction? (On Now!)

Browsing the net yesterday and came across this fantastic auction of Star Trek items! There are props, scripts and costumes from all the Trek series, but I’m focusing on TOS here 🙂

The Auction is being held by the site invaluble.com,  and you can see the entire list of Trek items here.   Note: This auction started yesterday (6/29) and ends tomorrow (7/1) — the bidding is going on as I write this, (on unpublished photo negatives, scripts, etc>)  and they’re saving the real iconic stuff for the last day!  Costumes!!!  (Spock’s Shirt! Carolyn Palamas’ pink toga!!!)

I’m amazed to see how so many of these survived 50+ years in remarkable shape!  Of course,  if I had money to burn, you know I’d bid heavily on the Spock Tunic!  The story of the tunic is incredible — this original screen-worn tunic of Nimoy’s was won in a movie magazine contest in 1968, and the owner has kept it quietly in her dark closet all these years; preventing fading and damage (thank goodness there wasn’t a fire in all those years!) Seeing the condition of some of these gives an insight to how backstage work went; there’s an insignia missing 0n a couple, probably re-used) And the Klingon pants were see-through??? (worn with black pants underneath!)   You gotta hand it to the auction company Profiles in History to find all the coolest stuff!

It’s a TOS fans dream! Get a load of these! (No drooling on your device!)

My Weekly Spock: TOS Publicity with Grace

I’m a fool for original TOS Publicity Photos!  These are just GOLD!   I just came across these from the site Addicted to Sci-Fi.  The funnything here is, of course, that Rand and Spock rarely had any scenes together (and were hardly this snuggly) on the series!

RIP Leonard and Grace, your smiles are with us always ❤

My Weekly Spock: Rare TOS Publicity Photos

I’m always happy to find publicity photos for original Trek episodes.  Recently I came across a few I had never seen before!  It makes me wonder if there were publicity pictures for every episode made? (Wouldn’t that be great?)  Well, I’ll keep searching! Here’s some fun ones for now from This Side of Paradise,  Mudd’s Women, and Spectre of the Gun!  I find the Mudd’s Women’s ones especially funny!
