1962 Topps "Mars Attacks" Complete Set (55)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,350.00
Gorgeous super high-grade set of this American classic. The "Mars Attacks" set is unparalleled in the presentation of its colorful, detailed artwork and gruesome graphics. Parents were up in arms upon viewing the gore and mayhem depicted by this scary science fiction set, which tells the story of Martians attacking planet Earth, but kids couldn't get enough of them. With the exception of several cards which grade Ex-Mt and card #1 which grades Ex, this is a solid Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt set. We have selected five cards to be graded by PSA: #6 Burning Navy Ships (EX-MT 6), 21 Prize Captive (NM-MT 8), 24 The Shrinking Ray (NM 7), 25 Capturing a Martian (NM-MT 8), and 39 Army of Giant Insects (NM-MT 8). The checklist card is unmarked, centered 40/60 left to right, 30/70 top to bottom, and is otherwise in Ex-Mt condition. The set has flawless colors, razor-sharp corners, no print lines, and superb eye-appeal. This is a spectacular high-grade complete set of one of the most highly prized of all nonsports issues. Total 55 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
