1967 Leaf Star Trek Trading Cards

Product Details

User Rating:

1967 Leaf Star Trek is the first set of trading cards for the landmark franchise. It's also somewhat tough to find. Believed to have been originally released regionally, the cards soon disappeared from the market.

The set has black and white images on the front taken directly from the show. Some also appear to be stills taken during filming. 1967 Leaf Star Trek card backs have Captain Kirk and Spock standing on the right side. A block of text is surrounded by a red border. The top-left corner has the Star Trek symbol with the card number inside. Although the writing on the card backs is extensive, it doesn't connect to any episode. 1967 Leaf Star Trek is a 72-card set.

As with a lot of sets that are both rare and pricey, reprints exist. Genuine 1967 Leaf Star Trek trading cards use different colored card stock. When flipped on their sides, the top and bottom layers of the stock are white and the middle is gray. An unauthorized reprint from 1981 is easy to tell because they state they're just that in the copyright info. There is also some controversy over a find of uncut sheets in Europe as to whether the cards were printed in the 1960s and authorized by Paramount. Other unmarked reprints are slightly smaller and are printed on a lesser quality card stock.

Collectors may also encounter cards numbered higher than 72. These cards are legit although not a part of the original 1967 Leaf Star Trek set. A pair of sets released by Rittenhouse in 2006 and 2008 honoring the show's 40th anniversary included expansion inserts that added another 36 cards to the checklist. These are clearly marked and have updated Rittenhouse copyright info. While these are not officially a part of the 1967 Leaf Star Trek set, some collectors may still want to include them in their collection.

Have 81 original star trek cards from 1967. Some are doubles.


The 1967 set was printed By Economy Folding Box Corporation In Chicago. I received a full set when they were printed. all 72 . . I did not like the show and I was 7. I used them as Motor sounds on my Bicycle. :(

I have set of the 1967 Leaf card set. It must have also been released in Michigan because i bought mine a Woolworths in 1967. I have kept a complete set (ungraded) and about 5 wrappers that i managed to not rip up when i opened them. Years ago i sold my extras to someone at a con.


I have a Not Funny 1967 card that is signed by both Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner. I am wondering how much it may be worth? Actually it is a Not So Funny card #29. It’s a 2011 reproduction. Shatner drew a mustache on Nimoy. Pretty funny.
