1962 Topps "Mars Attacks" Complete Set (55)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,400

Extremely attractive complete 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! This is a particularly outstanding set for any collector looking for a beautiful high-quality set, but is not interested in spending the tens of thousands of dollars an ultra high-grade set could cost. Fifty of the fifty-five cards in the set grade an impressive Ex to Ex+ overall, with the remaining five cards just slightly lesser at Vg to Vg-Ex+. The checklist card is unmarked and grades Vg-Ex+. The set has flawless colors and superb eye-appeal, with just light touches of wear at the corners or centering issues keeping the cards from grading higher. This is an outstanding complete set of one of the most highly prized of all nonsports issues. Total: 55 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,400
