Description

    1962 Topps Mars Attacks High Grade Complete Set (55). Offered is a high grade 1962 Topps Mars Attacks Set. Simultaneously charming in its cartoonish design and horrifying in its depictions of extreme violence, this Kennedy-era set remains one of the collecting hobby's favorite non-sports issues. The fifty-five cards take us through the Martians' attempted conquest of earth, sparing not a drop of blood and gore, and culminates with Earth's eventual counter-attack that leaves our orbital neighbor wishing they'd never stepped into their spaceships. The quality of this high grade set is evident in the 25 cards slabbed by PSA, which have an aggregate SMR value of $3,900. The 3 cards that have been graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 are the highest graded by PSA, with no 9's. Highlights include: Graded Cards - PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 3 cards w/#'s 2, 33 and 51; PSA NM-MT 8: 13 cards w/#'s 5, 12, 14, 23, 25, 28, 29, 35, 36, 41, 46, 48 and 52; PSA NM 7: 9 cards w/#'s 1 The Invasion Begins, 6, 10, 13, 15, 18, 34, 49 and 55 Checklist. Grades 46% NM to NM/MT, 45% EX to EX/MT, 9% VG to VG/EX.
