2017 Topps Mars Attacks: The Revenge! Trading Cards Checklist and Details


You’d think one day the Martians would learn. But they keep coming back, even after 55 years. 2017 Topps Mars Attacks: The Revenge! brings back the iconic trading card franchise as a premium factory set.


Each box set of the hobby-only product has a full base set, a bunch of parallels, a sketch card and an additional premium insert.

Base Set

The 2017 Topps Mars Attacks: The Revenge! base set has 110 cards. It’s a new story about a new invasion. The new tale of retribution is told over 55 cards. The second half of the set looks at the production side, offering  reproductions of early sketches and planning.

As with previous Mars Attacks sets, this is a collaborative effort. Fred Harper and Layron DeJarnette did the final paintings based off of the pencils and storyboards of Brent Engstrom. Comic veteran, Gary Carlson, did the writing.

Images are gruesome and violent, just as should be expected from the franchise. The design is based on the original 1962 Mars Attacks.

Each box set has 25 Emerald Green parallels. Additional parallels are randomly inserted as bonus cards: Yellow (/199), Red (/99), Black (/55), Bronze (/25), Silver (/10) and Gold (/2). Printing Plates are also available as one of the additional box hits.

Sketch Cards

Sketch cards fall one per box set. And while there are traditional sketch with art drawn directly on the card. But there are some non-traditional styles as well.

Shaped Sketch Cards are die-cut in the shape of the Martian saucer. Panoramic Sketch Cards fold out, offering double the area for art. Finally, Puzzle Sketch Cards are four separate sketches that go together. These are packaged together in sets so there’s no need to hunt and hope that all of them show up.

Additional Inserts

2017 Mars Attacks: The Revenge! has a couple of additional inserts. Medallion cards come with a piece of metal that’s either a Martian ray gun or spaceship.

Autographs come in a couple of forms. Len Brown, writer of the original Mars Attacks set, signed copies of all 100 base cards. Illustrator Autographs take a similar approach, only with the current crew.
