Description



Marketed by the leading trading card producer Topps under the dummy company name “Bubbles Inc.” in 1962, the outrageous Mars Attacks series has blossomed into a collecting legend. At a time when the sci-fi genre was taking off with packed movie houses for Saturday matinees, this entertaining and often gory series sparked parental outrage over its many violent illustrations, leading Topps to halt production. As is typical with banned and forbidden items, this classic series only grew more popular over time and is generally considered the biggest non-sport card prize of the post-WWII era. Blessed with the zany artwork of genius pulp magazine and comic book illustrator Norm Saunders, this colorful, boundary pushing set is a permanent want-list fixture, with demand always at full blast.
