    1962 Topps "Mars Attacks" Near Set (54/55). Simultaneously thrilling in its 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 series takes 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. Highlights include: #'s 1 The Invasion Begins (VG/EX), 21 Prize Captive (VG/EX) and 55 Checklist (PR, marked). Grades 11% EX, 66% VG to VG/EX, 23% PR to GD.
