Superman: 1940 Gum.

After learning there was a 1940 gum set devoted to Superman, I knew I had to pick one up if I could find a poorly-conditioned gem for a great price. After weeks of searching eBay, one finally came my way for a few bucks.


My copy of card # 23 in the set, Hurtling To Destruction, is missing a chunk of cardboard and displays plenty of wear and tear, but I love it nevertheless. It's held its color fairly well and Superman is intact, which is all I really cared about in addition to the price.


Yes, Superman saves Junior from a "I drove the car off the cliff" death.
