1962 Topps Mars Attacks is one of the most sought after and famous non-sport trading cards of all time. The set of 55 cards, illustrated by Norman Saunders and Wallace Wood, were initially popular but ceased production as parents protested the set’s graphic violence and sexual content.

Original packs of five sold for five cents each but the cards now sell for hundreds of dollars. The checklist is relatively small with only 55 cards but the imagery and story telling have been wildly influential, even inspiring a Tim Burton film.

In 2018, Topps used the packaging for card #91 in their 80th Anniversary Wrapper Art series of cards.

Clicking any links within the checklist will direct you to eBay listings for that card.
