Lot 1594: 1958 Topps Space Original Card Art
UPDATE: This is in fact card #81, Jupiter’s Terrain from the 1958 Topps Space Set.
Inspired by the science fiction craze that led to Hollywood fare like Forbidden Planet, these fantasy cards represent one of the high water marks artistically for Topps and the non-sports genre. Stunning 5x3.25" painting pictures a space ship navigating the volcanic caverns of a distant planet. In gouache-on-board, this delightful rendition made it into the final 88-card set. The detail is just incredible, the colors are bright and vibrant. Condition is an amazing NRMT.
