Gum, Inc issued the R145 Superman set in 1940. The set consisted of two series--a 48 card low number series and a very difficult 24 card high number series. Superman first appeared in DC's Action Comics on April 18, 1938. Like other superheroes of the time, he quickly got into the hearts and minds of America's youth and their growing imaginations. That this set came out only a couple years after Superman appeared tells us of the character's popularity. Action comics quickly became a mainstay in drugstores all across America, put DC Comics on the map and is still published today. Superman continues an over-70 year run of popularity as movies and TV shows have featured Superman over these many decades and all manner of collectibles have been created to supplement demand for his likeness. This set represents a good opportunity to get a clean, even set appearing about VGEX to EX. While it doesn't contain any high numbers, it is one of the most popular pre-war gum sets to be found.

This lot is for a single R145 Gum Inc Superman card #43 in about EX condition with just light corner wear.
