Description

    1964 Bubbles, Inc. (Topps) Outer Limits Complete Set (55). Topps reserved the use of their "Bubbles, Inc." imprint for sets that they felt could be viewed as controversial by the parents of America. This tradition began with their "Elvis Presley" set for 1956, continued with their "Mars Attacks" release in 1962, and ended with their "Monsters of Outer Limits" set in 1964. The final use was intended to be the firm's "King Kong" set for 1965, but since that last product never went beyond the test stage, "Outer Limits" stands as the final, generally distributed Bubbles, Inc. offering. It is also believed to be the very last non-sport set to be distributed in both nickel and penny packs. As classic a set as either of its two earlier siblings, "Outer Limits" incorporates black-and-white photo imagery from the popular TV show that was given a brilliant hand-colored treatment by the Topps art staff that relied on glowing, eye-grabbing, hot pastels. Every image was framed within fragile black borders that have driven condition-conscious collectors crazy ever since. As a result, the set's strongly appealing look is unique among all the sets ever to see production, and single prints of some numbers make it one of the toughest sets to complete. The set grades mainly EX/MT to NM with some slightly lesser.

    Three promos from the Topps reprint series are also included.
