Original 1957 Topps "Target: Moon" card artwork (4.75 x 3.75 inches). This is the actual painting that was used to produce #39, entitled "Trapped In Meteor Shower," from this extremely popular set which features spectacular futuristic scenes and events in man's conquest of space. Trading card sets always reflect the world and times in which they are issued. The "Target: Moon" set, of course, was issued at a time when the space race put the world at the cusp of new and exciting advances in space exploration. This extremely detailed artwork captures three astronauts trying to avoid being hit by flying meteors. The artwork includes additional image area which was cropped out by Topps on the issued card. The artwork is in Near Mint condition. Accompanied by an example of the issued card which this work appears on. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
