Description

    1962 Topps "Mars Attacks" Complete Set (55). 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. A total of 8 cards have been graded by SGC. Highlights include: Graded Cards - SGC 84 NM 7: 4 cards w/#'s 19, 23, 36 and 46; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards w/#'s 6 and 15; SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, #12; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 1 card, Checklist. Grades 7% NM, 53% EX to EX/MT, 40% VG to VG/EX (2 lesser). The SMR value of the graded cards exceeds $500.
