Mars Attacks!
Bubbles, Inc. (Topps) - 1962

Notes:  The collector reference number for this set is R714-30; some overprints
and short-prints have been reported.  A test issue was distributed in very small
volume, and the content of several cards was toned down for the official release
of the cards. A series of 11 cards that had been removed from the original print
run were published as part of the "Mars Attacks Archives" set in 1994. Thanks 
much to Bob Hall for confirming the checklist for the original series!

Authorized reprints were produced in 1984 by Renata Galasso Inc. (55 cards plus 
a cover card numbered 56, picturing the original wrapper and texted with "Official 
Mars Attacks Reprint By Agreement with Topps Chewing Gum Inc.") and by 
B.H.C.R. (same as the R.G.I. set but with "sample" stamped on the backs). 
R.G.I. included a four-card oversized (5" x 7") reprint set of cards 10, 25, 34, 
and 35 from the original series. A limited series of 13 cards (sets numbered to 
1000 and marked "The Unpublished Version") was produced by Rosem Enter-
prises in 1984 based on the original artworks before they were 'touched up' by 
Topps for the official release. Thanks to Darrell Warner for the update!

Box: 36 packs of 8 cards.
Common sets: approx. 1.61 per box if collation were perfect.
