U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701

From the SkyBox Master Series, 1993, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 card. I dug this out of a tote of miscellaneous toys and whatnot, it was in a zip lock baggie with a few other cards, I think it's the only one of the series I have, but it's obvious why I kept it.

The Artist is Keith Birdsong, who is an illustrator that has painted numerous Pocket Book covers as well as collector plates for the Hamilton Collection and the Bradford Exchange, you can see some more artwork here .

On the back is this quote from the artist.

"For me, this ship is a source of inspiration and hope for dreams yet to be fulfilled."

That pretty much sums it up for me as well.
