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 - #'s 1 Invasion Begins (SGC 80 EX/NM 6), 8 Terror In Times (SGC 84 NM 7), 13 Watching From Mars (SGC 80 EX/NM 6), 31 The Monster Reaches (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5), 36 Destroying A Dog (SGC 70 EX+ 5.5), 39 Army of Giant Insects (SGC 84 NM 7), 40 High Voltage (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5) and 43 Blasting The Bug (SGC 80 EX/NM 6).

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
