2019 Card-vent Calendar: December 12

December 12, 2019:
2015 Rittenhouse Star Trek: The Next Generation #AC05 Comic Book Panel (59/154)
 So a Star Trek card set did a thing where they cut up comic book pages and pasted them onto cards like they were relics?  Interesting idea, and if they decided to use only one copy (or two, you know, printing on both sides) per issue, then theoretically each one of these framed panels is unique.  This one is from Vol. 2 #5.  Here's the cover. (Yes! Geordi gettin' some!  On the cover!)
I am especially pleased with this card because Commander William T. Riker is the featured subject.  Let the record state that I am a Riker Liker.  I hold the truth to self-evident that ST:TNG only got good once Jonathan Frakes grew a beard.  And, though my height makes it difficult to perform it in most situations, I am an admirer of the Riker Maneuver.  In my book, this card is... Number One.

  1. Never heard of the concept of a "comic book relic" card before but it's pretty interesting. I'd be happy pulling something like this!
