Let me know if I am full of it! I have re-read these cards so many times my eyes are now crossed.

In the regular Invasion base set (not the Heritage subset) it appears there are mistakes (unless I am screwed up, that's possible!): Card 42 its story on back should be on card 45. Card 44 story should be on card 42. Card 45 story should be on card 46. Card 46 story should be on card 47. Card 47 story should be on card 46. Card 43 story should be on card 44?? I think I read them right (wrong)!?

YEAH!!!...as I've elaborated on previously, the fullkolor sketchcards that I worked on all have fluorescent paint and really light-up to max fx under a blacklite!...check it out!...(FYI-...on most of the Martian creatures eyes I used an "opalescent/interference blue" glaze over the underkolors to give an extra effect when card is tipped...)

You're close... just name the 7 cards with the wrong stories and you'll win a prize... You've only cited 5. Not saying the 5 you cited are the ones, but i'm looking for all 7!

Alvin, does Topps ever have a complete checklist issued for sets (in particular this Mars Attacks obviously!) similar to something like this? 2013 Women of Marvel Series 2 Trading Cards Checklist - Rittenhouse Archives
Or even how Panini do their checklists on their site?

If not, I hope they will consider it. That's a very nice checklist RA did.

RA used to post up all the artists names with links to multi galleries of the cards for the sets. Don't know if they still do that but I know they have them up still on their site, just gotta search for em.

Thanks. It and the first one were originally to be part of the regular inserts but the oils just took to long to dry well enough to pack and ship so I kept the 2 I had started as returns. Now I'm inspired by You and a few others who have done outstanding cards for this set. but only have 2 more returns to do anything inspired. lol.

I had one box that was missing a sketchcard and then another that didn't have any sort of 2nd hit. I contacted Topps per their replacement procedure and was told that a replacement sketch would be sent but I was out of luck on a replacement for the missing '2nd hit' since there is only one guaranteed hit per box. WHAT!?

So did this person not know what they were talking about or is there some loophole in the wording that clearly states 2 hits per box printed on the side of the box? Totally confused.

It's 2 hits per box. It's even on the side of the f%^&*ing box. Call them again and yell at them.

Funny stuff - I was chatting with Darrin on Facebook last night when he posted the piece to ebay. He shot me a message when it sold not too long afterwards. I told him he should join the chat here on Blowout.
