Lieutenant Uhura broke all the rules back in the ’60s, paving the way for African American women in the world of entertainment, so this ’76 Star Trek trading card is a must have in your collection. In fact, the first televised bi-racial kiss in history was between the characters Lieutenant Uhura and Captain James T. Kirk. Uhura was the communications officer for the Star Ship Enterprise. So let’s talk about the 1976 Star Trek trading card 6.
There are around 90 PSA graded specimens of this card and absolutely no GEM MINT (PSA 10) cards, at the time of writing this. I currently am lucky enough to have a few of these in my collection, one of them being in MINT (PSA 9) condition. I’m may happen to be one of the lucky few in the world, but I also paid quite the pretty price to have it. For me, it was worth it.
The Front of the Uhura Card
Lieutenant Uhura, as previously mentioned, is featured on the front of the card, looking at the ship’s main viewer on the bridge. The card is also titled “Lieutenant Uhura”.
The Back of 1976 Star Trek Trading Card 6
The number “6″ is on the back and you’ll find the following Captain’s Log:
A woman of considerable ability and beauty, Lieutenant Uhura (Swahili for “freedom”) is the Communications Officer aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. It is her important task to contact whatever alien life form the ship encounters, and set up “hailing frequencies” so that Captain Kirk can communicate with his neighbors in space.
This isn’t an easy card to get. When people have it, they don’t want to let it go, so if you can get your hands on a decent ungraded specimen in EX-MT or better, grab it! Also, if you find one that is graded, it’s a great find. If possible, get a PSA 8 or PSA 9, but if you want one and don’t have one, you can get a PSA 5, 6, or 7 at a reasonable price. If you’re looking for a 9, be don’t be shocked to find price tags that range somewhere between $450 to $750 since there aren’t any 10s out there and no one wants to give them up. This card is one of the top 10 Star Trek trading cards to own.
