MT. LAUREL, N.J. – JULY 6, 2000 – Every year Star Trek trading cards gain popularity in the hobby industry and this year is no different. Capitalizing on the hottest trends in the industry, the new Profiles Edition of Star Trek is one of the most innovative sets Fleer has ever developed.
The 82 card-basic set of Star Trek Profiles is an interesting set because it highlights each character in a unique way, and also tells a story. Profiles is a fitting name because the back of every card displays a picture depicting a particular scene, and a story that goes along with the picture. Also included on the back of each card is a quote or a trivia question.
Autographics, the leading autograph program in the hobby today returns and can be found in Star Trek Profiles. All of your favorite characters are included in this star-studded lineup – Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander William Riker, Captain James Kirk, Doctor Beverly Crusher and Lietenant Commander Data are just a few of the 19 autographs included in the collection.
The real highlight of Profiles is Star Threads, the insert that gives the collector a chance to own a piece of Captain Picard’s actual uniform. Star Threads are inserted throughout the set featuring an authentic piece of uniform that was actually worn by Patrick Stewart on the show. Each card is sequentially numbered to 2500 to ensure the authenticity of the card.
One of the unique insert sets available in Star Trek Profiles is Alter Egos, which portrays what happens when a character becomes someone else. Some of the Alter Egos included are Captain Picard as Locutus in “Best of Both Worlds,” Thomas Riker in “Second Chances,” and Data in “Masks.” These are only a few of the nine different Alter Egos you will come across in this one-of-a-kind insert set.
Another insert set included in Star Trek Profiles is Q’s Quips, which is a nine-card precision die-cut series with each card depicting a different Quote from Q. Other inserts included in Profiles are First Contacts and Crossover Characters.
If you are a Star Trek fan or just a card collector you do not want to miss this fantastic set. Fleer offers the most dynamic Star Trek set there has ever been, and it is now available in 10 card packs for $1.99 (SRP).
