    Leonard Nimoy "Spock" tunic from Star Trek: The Original Series. (Paramount TV, 1966-1969) This blue velour science division Starfleet duty uniform tunic was worn by Leonard Nimoy as the mixed human-Vulcan first officer, "Mr. Spock", in the second season of Star Trek: The Original Series. Complete with original rank braiding on the sleeves and insignia on chest, this incredible piece has been stored in a dark closet since 1968 and the color remains exceptionally vibrant. What is truly remarkable is the iron-clad accompanying provenance. This Nimoy "Spock" tunic was the first prize in a 1968 "TV Star Parade's Star Trek--Design-a-Costume Contest" and it was accompanied by 3 separate letters: 1) a 1-page typed letter signed by Leonard Nimoy (on Star Trek letterhead featuring the U.S.S. Enterprise), dated August 15, 1968, stating (in part): "Congratulations on winning Ideal's design costume. I'm glad you like the uniform." 2) a fully handwritten 2-page letter by Star Trek costume designer Bill Theiss (also on Star Trek letterhead), dated May 1, 1968, congratulating the winner of over 2500 entries, and stating (in part): "I'm sorry that I was unable to come to St. Paul to present Leonard's shirt to you in person." 3) a 1-page letter from Patricia Langdon, editor of TV Star Parade, sponsor of the contest, dated February 2, 1968, congratulating the winner of the contest, stating (in part): "Your prize, Leonard Nimoy's shirt, will be presented to you by Mr. Bill Theiss some time within the next month when Mr. Theiss arrives to your city." Never before have we encountered such a prized wardrobe piece from the Original Series with such exceptional documentation. Mr. Spock remains the overwhelming favorite and most highly desired Star Trek character by collectors. This second season tunic is beyond reproach. Tiny 2 mm. hole on the left breast with slight staining under the arms; very fine overall condition.
