Item Description
2.75x4.5" thin paper card ©1941 Superman Inc. ACC# D143. From a set of 24 issued for the Superman bread campaign and reverse has imprint reading "Ask For Saylor's Bread - Coming Soon – Superman Bread - Watch For It." These were bread loaf inserts issued by several different bakeries. This is card #3 titled "Poison In Mid-Air" w/great scene of Superman flying toward a dirigible to intercept a plummeting package of poison falling into water tower. Pledge stamp is #3 "I Promise To Save Tin Foil For National Defense." A complete set of eight stamps were to be sent in as enrollment in the "Superman Junior Defense League Of America" and upon doing so, one received a club badge. Has a 3/8" paper tear on left center edge (as is typical). Lightly aged but still bright and clean. Fine by our general grading scale, card-grading scale would be VG/EX. These cards are rare w/stamp still intact and this is the toughest Superman card set to assemble. We are offering a number of these cards in this auction (see items #2671-2676), a rare opportunity to acquire this many at one time. We have sold complete cards in the past for between $500 and $1,200.
