Celebrate 50 Years Of Mars Attacks!
It's been a whopping fifty hears since the mother of all trading cards attacked unsuspecting Camelot-era American youth! To commemorate this historic occasional, Topps has re-issued the vintage Norman Saunders' jaw-dropping mini paintings carefully printed on superior card stock! Collect 'em all! There is also an array of ultra-cool merchandise and a book to pump up the festivities. Each deck includes a new card by a contemporary artist that sadly don't hold a candle to the savage, lurid, vividness of the originals. Don't even mention the Tim Burton movie! What a disgrace! A complete misunderstanding of the original intention and vibe (like his sloppy APES remake). I just picked up a pack at my local Target. I also have a re-issue deck from the 80's or 90's. My original cards didn't survive my mom's spring cleaning. Here are some links with more MARS cards information:
