Steven M. Charendoff
, president of Rittenhouse Archives, spoke about the card that mean the most to him personally, the ones signed by Majel Barrett Roddenberry and Leonard Nimoy. “Majel signed these cards for us just days before she passed away,” he said. “As far as I know, they were the last official Star Trek items that she ever signed. I had no idea at the time that she was even ill, and for her to do this for us, as she did on several other occasions throughout the twelve years (she’d signed for Rittenhouse), speaks to her own appreciation for and dedication to the Star Trek fans and the franchise itself.”
