The 1968 Gordon Currie Star Trek Sketch set is an eight-card set that features The USS Enterprise, and seven of the characters from the original series (TOS) of Star Trek. Each of the eight Star Trek trading cards from the set was sketched by Gordon Currie (obviously). None of the caricatures are actually numbered. Each card is on white stock card. On the front of each card are the caricature, title of the card, and Gordon’s signature. The back of each card has the copyright info.

How Much Are 1968 Gordon Currie Star Trek Sketches Worth?
This set is one to own more so for the cool factor, as opposed to having something that is highly valuable. An ungraded set is really only worth around $15 to $20. A MINT graded set is probably worth around $80 to $100 at the most.
I personally own this set, because it came out only a year after the infamous 1967 Star Trek trading cards set, and thought it would be fun to have. Not to mention, it didn’t really cost me much of anything to get my hands on a set.
As I mentioned before, this isn’t a highly valuable set. If you’re a collector focused on increased values, don’t expect a huge return on this set. However, if you want to get your hands on a Star Trek set unlike any other, this is a really fun one to have for next to nothing.
For under $20 non-graded, or under $100 graded, the 1968 Gordon Currie Star Trek Sketch Set is worth adding to your collection.
