Base Set

The Women of ST 50th Anniversary set released July 26, 2017. It follows in the footsteps of the 2010 Women of Star Trek set.  After the 50th Anniversary set, it was expected that cases prices would go back down, however they did not. Rittenhouse hasn’t had a price change in over 10 years.  Although the set wasn’t billed as premium product specifically, it did have alot in common with earlier premium sets. The base set is on thick card stock, with foiling and a ‘soft touch’ feel, like velvet.  The cards are bright and colorful and use different images on the front and back.  The feature pairings (both romantic and not) of the featured women.
