1962 Topps "Mars Attacks" Complete Set (55): #8 PSA Set Registry (8.00 GPA)!
Starting Bid - $5,000, Sold For - $27,000
Presented is a magnificent ultra high-grade set of 1962 Topps "Mars Attacks," one of the most classic sets of all time. 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 an extraordinary set, far nicer than what we are accustomed to seeing! The entire set of fifty-five cards has been graded and encapsulated NM-MT 8 by PSA and ranks eighth on the PSA Set Registry with an 8.00 GPA. Several cards in the set are particularly difficult to find in high grade, such as #1 "The Invasion Begins," which all alone lists for $3,300 in SMR, and #55 Checklist, which lists for $2,000. Every card in this set has flawless colors, sharp corners, outstanding centering, and superb eye-appeal. It would not be surprising if some of the cards were worthy of half-grade bumps if resubmitted for grading. This is a remarkably crisp, extremely fresh, exceptionally high-grade complete set of one of the most highly prized of all nonsports issues. Literally one of the finest "Mars Attacks" sets ever assembled in the history of collecting, this is a world-class set that would be a very significant highlight in even the most advanced collection! The total SMR value for the individual cards is $20,935. Total: 55 cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+++. SOLD FOR $27,000
