This, ladies and gents, is Jeff Maynard (in the yellow). He was the official photographer for some of the earliest Star Trek conventions, back in the 1970’s.

Everyone seemed to like the other Star Trek original convention photos, so I decided to post up a few more.
This collection, which includes hundreds of vintage, original photographs and negatives, is focused on the earliest Star Trek conventions, back in the 1970’s. There were a couple of earlier conventions in the late 1960’s, but those were smaller affairs held in public libraries - these photos show the first large scale gatherings where the cast of the original Star Trek (as well as costume designer Bill Theiss, and other luminaries of Science Fiction including Isaac Asimov, Gene Roddenberry, and more) attended. These conventions more closely resemble modern conventions - including cosplay & costume contests/masquerades.
The original staff photographer, Jeff Maynard, took these photographs back in the 1970’s, and we are auctioning off the collection.
This online auction ends on January 1st, at 8:00 PM (CST).
