Mars Attacks Cards - The Ultimate Collectors Collection
A limited series of 55 unique Mars Attacks cards.
In 1962, Topps released their infamous Mars Attacks cards and faced an almost immediate public backlash.
So much so that a complaint from a Connecticut district attorney caused Topps to stop producing the cards altogether…
So what was the big deal?
The 55-card set told the story of a Martian invasion and near destruction of Earth in gruesome visual detail.
Images on the cards featured people and pets being burned, zapped with lasers, and ruthlessly tortured.
And in this collection you can see every card in the set and follow along with the story written on the backs of them card by card.
