Default Why Leonard Nimoy is the coolest guy out there...

So, I'm playing around with Twitter and following a few celebrities for the fun of it. I see a tweet by Leonard Nimoy and start following him. I've been a big Star Trek fan since the 60s and collect the autographed cards as well.

About a week ago I was checking Twitter and saw that Mr. Nimoy was offering a signed card of his if you bought a t-shirt at his website. He's known for his photography as much as his acting. He said he had about 100 and I jumped at the offer (which didn't last long).

Today I got a cool "LLAP" t-shirt and this...

The copyright says 2010 so he must have a deal to get copies for himself. The original SkyBox ones were years ago.

Live Long and Prosper,
VinnyH

Wow, how much were the shirts selling for? Nimoy's auto cards are all easily $100+!

I ordered a "Treeman" shirt of one of his photos but they sent me a better shirt (for me) by mistake. I got a black T with "LLAP" on the front. The shirt was $30. with shipping. I knew I was going after the card.
I collect Star Trek autos and his signed cards from the sets are near $300. This newer version will fit nicely in my binder but now I need a Kirk, Scotty, and Bones.

Best to All,
Vinny

Back when skybox was doing the signings of that design, the pre-cut card plates were sent out to the signers -- they'd get a stack of these things, two cards per plate. Skybox also included 10 extras for the signers to keep and hand out themselves, and 6 extras for skybox for their master sets/insert promos.

They were pretty cool, though I've only managed to pick up one of these plates over the years.

I'm sorry but I wouldn't get one of those shirts even if they were free. Man they are butt ugly!!! Getting a Nimoy auto would be cool, but having to get a shirt like that in order to obtain one...no thanks.

Edit: Heck with it, ugly or not I want a Nimoy auto! I bought a tree man shirt! WOO HOO
