The Just Don’t Fit Anywhere Star Trek Cards

At some point, a large lot of the first 19 sets were sold to someone who packaged them with a header card (and a notation of scarcity). Quality of images is poor, but represent a lot of behind the scenes shots seen nowhere else. Set #2129 was not repackaged like the other sets and is often missed by collectors. The cards were offered for sale for quite awhile and aren’t likely limited,
