This 1962 Mars Attacks Almost Complete Set contains the majority of the 55 cards for this set. The Mars Attack set tells the story, card by card, of the evil creatures from Mars attacking Earth, and inflicting terrible and gory acts to its people and even their dogs. The Mars Attacks shows these acts of terror in colorful and graphic detail. Not to worry though, Earth counter-attacks and the story ends with card #54, Mars Explodes. The 1962 Mars Attacks set was produced by Topps, under the name Bubbles, Inc.
It was a follow-up to the equally gory, Civil War News card set, produced earlier that year. The 1962 Mars Attacks card set was also marketed to kids, but this time the parents took notice of the gore and complained. Topps responded by attempting to redesign the most offensive of the cards, but after a complaint from a Connecticut District attorney, decided not to risk damage to their baseball card empire over a niche set, and discontinued the 1962 Mars Attack cards.
This action only increased the popularity of the set, at the time, and over the years, the popularity of the Mars Attacks cards have continued to increase. As these cards were printed in limited numbers, 1962 Topps Complete Sets have become very difficult to find. This almost complete set contains 48 cards out of the possible 55 cards. This is not a complete set.

Each card is first reviewed by a member of our team, in order to detect any flaws that may not be visible on a scan, such as wrinkles, creases, print spots, or light stains. The vast majority of our vintage cards are professionally graded by the Dean's Cards Grading Software and include a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Our grading is on par with PSA standards when it comes to corners, centering and flaws - and tends to grade a bit tougher than PSA, on cards with a tilted image or rough edges. This grading software was developed to provide far better grading and consistency than can be achieved using the human eye.Determining the card's grade. The sharpness of the corners and the degree to which a card was cut off-center determines the maximum possible grade that the card can receive. The card's grade is further reduced by any flaws or blemishes that it may have. Each card is evaluated on the following characteristics and assigned a score. Corners - Each corner of a card is individually analyzed, and then assigned a score on how square, sharp, and flawless it appears. Centering - The borders are measured, at multiple points along the edge, to determine the horizontal and vertical centering and tilt. Defects - The card is examined for imperfections, such as: size, print flaws, dings, stains, creases, or other wear which could lower its grade. Bonus for Perfect Centering - A vintage card, with near perfect centering, is given a one-half grade bonus. 3.5 or 6.5 it will appear perfectly centered, both vertically and horizontally. Worst Corner - A card can grade only as high as the worst corner will allow. Tilt - The difference in width of a card border near the top, compared to the bottom. OCT - The sum of how far a card is Off-Center, plus its Tilt. Eye Appeal - The combination of a card's centering, corners and tilt. Well-Centered - Cards that appear perfectly centered receive a bonus of one-half grade. Flaws, defects and other imperfections - can lower a card's grade. Card Backs - the above criteria is also considered, for the back of the cards, but does not inflict as severe of a penalty to its grade. Once scanned, the cards are placed in "soft" sleeves, which have an open top for easy removal. The Dean's Cards label is placed on the top back of the card sleeve. Please note that when images are enlarged there may be instances of vertical lines running through the scans. This was caused by a "dust speck" on the scanner and can be verified by the vertical lines running into the black margins on the top and bottom of the image. About Dean and Dean's Cards.
