Bon Voyage Contest: Win This 1-of-1 Mars Attacks Heritage Sketch Card

**UPDATE, 9/18/12** Feel free to keep entering this contest.  I didn't get a chance to get the winner sorted out before I left for my trip so the contest entry will be ongoing through the end of December when I'll be returning briefly for the Christmas holiday.  ** 

As I take a step back from card blogging in the next few days I thought I would have a Bon Voyage contest to give away one of my 1-of-1 Mars Attacks Heritage sketch cards that I picked up on eBay.  This one is done by artist Howard Shum.


We are going to give everyone an equal chance at this so to enter just leave me a Mars Attacks related comment to this post and I'll randomize things on Tuesday night.

If you have a blog of your own or twitter please spread the word as I would love to get as many people entered as possible.

Never really gotten into Mars Attacks but everything you've posted on them has been fantastic. The artwork is just stellar.

Plus: Mars, aliens, war.

Can't beat that combo.

And thanks for the contest!

Loved the movie, don't know a whole lot about the cards, but the movie was great!

A lot of people think movies based on books are bad... they've never seen movies based on trading cards.

Marz attacked? When? Damn!! I missed it!! Turn my back for two minutes?!?! Maybe they're tired of us dropping our solar power, nosy rovers all over that little red planet!!

I too loved the movie, with all the cameos!!

The only thing better than martians, is sketch drawings of martians!

Maybe the new rover on Mars can prevent any future attacks. Cool card, thanks for the contest.

Take me to your leader.

There - the only somewhat Mars-ish Attacks comment I can make, and pretty lame at that.

Love me some Mars Attacks cards, bought a couple of packs taught they were really cool. Plus the movie was great lots of big names and funny lines. Would love to add this card to the little but growing collection.

Matt Pederson said...

Loved the movie. Hope to love this card.

Wait.

That sounded weird.

The nuns at St. Mary's in Nutley NJ took all my Mars Attacks cards away and I never got them back. That's why I bought the reprint set. Take THAT Sister Helen!!

love me some Mars Attacks... I've almost finished an acquisition of a Mars Attacks movie poster to be framed.

thanks!

Mars Attacks is an awesome set. ;)

My son loves Mars Attack!!

I heard a lot of people complain about these sketch cards. I absolutely LOVE them. In fact, I would love it if we could get a set of just the sketch cards! Reproductions, of course. But that would be awesome because about 99% of these cards are fantastic for being 'just sketches'!

Sorry to see you stepping back. It's a "heartbreaking" loss for the community. Best of luck to you Matt. Here's to Mars Attacks and you!

In the movie, when all the people in the desert waiting for the aliens, you will see it's near the town of Pahrump. Well...my sister lives there. I actually saw Mars Attacks in theaters, and now you have me hankering to see it yet again(it's been a few years).

Jafronius said...

My only exposure to Mars Attacks was the movie, but I have been impressed with the various posts you have been putting up on the cards.

I'm waiting for the Mars rover to be discovered and smashed by Starscream. Take that, Mohawk Guy!

Call your congressman. We need to fund Mars missions. We need to attack first.
