Mars Attacks! Topps trading cards from 1962

I’d never heard of these until the other day. I don’t like the Mars Attacks! movie any better after learning of these. But these are rather interesting trading cards, especially for 1962. Apparently Wallace Wood, the original artist (did the designs but not the final art) was a rather dark character, taking his own life in the early 1980s at the age of 54.
