Default The Guardian Of Forever, Anyone Up For A Road Trip?

Figuratively speaking of course, anyone have any old Trek ads from magazines, comics or catalogs etc. that you can share? I have a fair collection of Creepy magazines along with some Eerie issues from the old Warren Publishing Co. that gives a decent account of Star Treks popularity and later resurgence, insofar as merchandising is concerned that I can scan and post if anyone's interested. Doesn't have to be merchandise either, news ads would be nice, TV Guide articles, movie stills, makes no difference. I mainly have TOS related material but anything would be welcome. With the future of Star Trek seemingly secure anyone for a trip to the past?

A friend emailed this to me awhile back:

Looks just like a peace rally from the 60's only the signs are different and they are going after a piece of NBC!

I've wondered myself, somebody's holding something out....maybe a candle on the end of a stick?

Here's some of the earliest available merchandise.

Oh Lordy! Those comic book ads really do take me back. Was the model advertised on the previous entry one of TOS models in kit form? I think I paid about that much for a glue together "E" model in the late 60's. Wish I still had it.

There didn't seem to be much going on through the early 70's but the ST Animated Series and syndication. Not much in the way of merchandise but with the conventions and such, things seem to be picking up about '76.

I still have my copy of "Star Trek One"... the interesting thing about this early, early collection of James Blish's adaptations were some of the titles... "Charlie's Law" instead of "Charlie X" and (I think) "The Unreal McCoy" for "The Man Trap"....

Have those titles been corrected in later printings?
