(written from a Production point of view)
This trading card set featuring Star Trek: The Motion Picture, includes 88 cards and 22 stickers and was produced in 1979. It's the second and last Star Trek set produced by Topps. Each wax pack contained 10 base cards, one sticker and a stick of gum. This set was produced in large enough quantities to be easily obtained by collectors. These cards were subject to staining from gum sticks and the wax wrappers. There are versions of the cards and stickers with either one or two asterisks on the front.
In 2013 Topps produced a 75th Anniversary set. In that set it included "buyback" cards that were reinserted into packs.  This 1979 Star Trek set was chosen to be one of those buyback sets. A buyback card is distinguishable by a gold foil Topps logo printed on the face of the card.
