Gene Roddenberry's Rolodex sold at a recent Star Trek auction for a mere (or maybe outrageous) $1,280, and the new owner is sharing some pictures of his newest possession. Below is what the Rolodex card for William Shatner looks like, but there are others for people like Leonard Nimoy (of course) and Carl Sagan's secretary. Here's the story over at TheRocketeer's Flickr site:
A friend of mine at work went to the Star Trek Sale recently (June 27, 2010) and finally received shipment of his auction prize, Gene Roddenberry's Rolodex. Inside were several surprises. Not only was Shatner's info in there, so was Nimoy's, Carl Sagan's secretary, Astronaut Walter (Wally) Schirra, his wife (Majel) mobile phone number, all the numbers to house phones at his house, many relatives (surprisingly a lot are doctors in Georgia... does that make you think or what?!) and much, much more. I'm sure most if not all of the data here is very outdated and many of the people are no longer with us that are included on the cards, but it's cool anyway. I'm hoping to get a chance to shoot a photo of the actual Rolodex sometime, if he feels it is safe enough to bring it to work. What a treasure! My friend is considering checking out some of the numbers to see if they're still current. Who knows...
