This set is due to release next month. Most of the info on it is on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MarsAttacks

This year marks the 50th anniversary of one of THE most important non-sports card sets ever released. I've been bugging Topps about it for the past two years, I'm honored to be part of it.

This set is based solely on the original card set, not the horrendous Tim Burton train wreck of a movie.

Here are some of my sketch cards. I had a blast doing these. I painted every one, hoping to capture the feel of the original set. Plus I had fun with some of them. smile.gif

Dang Ted, the Munch Mayhem had me rollin'....


"Baseball players will take anything. If you had a pill that would guarantee a pitcher 20 wins but might take five years off his life, he'd take it" MLB pitcher Jim Bouton about drug use in the Major Leagues... quoted in 1969.

I vow to no longer purchase any product that features sticker autographs...
If your user name is this color I'm afraid I'll have to pass on any proposed transactions at this time.

Glad you folks like them! About 1/4 of my cards are some kind of parody. smile.gif

This set could be a real sleeper hit. I know Topps is promoting the heck out of it.

Those may be better than the real set. TCC may have to commission you to do a set. One for each major sport and then have a contest in each respective catogory for the card. (hint, hint)

I don't understand companies that "promote the heck out of it", but don't put anything on their website.

Any chance you have a source for a real checklist so this can be put on OpenChecklist?

PWE or Plain White Envelope is ONLY okay for 1 or 2 base cards. Otherwise use of a padded or bubble mailer is expected.
