Wild Wild West Season 1
The Best Of The Wild Wild West Season
Rittenhouse Archives - Aug 2000
Rittenhouse Archives is pleased to announce its release of the first-ever series of
trading cards based on the classic TV show "The Wild Wild West" starring Robert
Conrad as James T. West and Ross Martin as Artemus Gordon. This inaugural series,
"The Best of The Wild Wild West, 1965-66 Season One," takes a retrospective look
back at the best episodes of the show's first year on the air, when all of its episodes
were filmed exclusively in black and white.
The base set consists of 100 cards, with different photos on the fronts and backs.
Virtually all of the photography in the set has been culled from remastered copies of the
original master film reels, and nearly all of the photos have never before been published!
Bonus cards include 9 "Vintage West" cards depicting Robert Conrad at his heroic
best; 9 "Master of Disguise" cards showcasing Ross Martin in many of his
fabulous disguises; and 2 "Commemorative" cards honoring the late Martin and
guest star Michael Dunn, the diminutive Dr. Loveless.
Among the 100 base cards, a total of 11 episodes are featured, each in a 9-card subset.
All 4 of the Dr. Loveless episodes from season one have been presented as a special
tribute to the most popular villain in the show's 4-year run.
