Set: 1941 Gum Inc. Superman (R145)

Card: #69 Saved from Burial Alive

“ Awesome! This set was ranked in my top 3 most wanted for many years until I finally found three of them in 2014...locally, no less! This is the first comic book set ever, Superman had only debuted 3 years earlier. I had my first comic read to me at 5 days old and I credit the medium with my large lexicon, interest in science and printed media, and so much more. Superman was in that first comic but did not play a large role. This is my favorite Card of the Day in 2018 so far. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I want to join the club. I want a valuable prize. ” -switzr1

“ Simply awesome. ” -ShoTime

“ "On the third day, Superman opened the tomb..." ” -mkaz80

“ I was never a big Superman fan, but, the artwork on this card is wonderful. The card looks an odd size as well, I guess that was common back in those days. ” -Gunny

“ Not a fan of superhero stuff but this is a classic. ” -carthage44

“ Nothing short of awesome....would love to see the whole set. ” -tbshaw

“ Nice! Now I don’t collect non-sport, but have to appreciate the nostalgia of the card. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I love this card and the story on the back. ” -gregman1000

“ Just a wonderful card! ” -NJDevils

“ If you look closely, you can see where they airbrushed out his mustache. ” -OCHawkeye

“ Vintage Superman Yes Yes Yes. Oh this would be a wonderful set to chase. A bit difficult but wonderfully fun to chase. ” -captkirk42

“ "No, Superman! Don't squash that kid with a giant boulder! He's a Boy Scout, for crying out loud!" ....Oh, wait. The back claims he's SAVING the kid. My bad. ” -Vvvergeer

“ It's a bird. It's a plane. It's ..... SUPERMAN! Wish I had some of these. ” -jayoneill

“ beyond awesome ” -UKboogie

“ Nice!!! I love the story on the back as well. This was back when superheros were superheros! ” -RoyalChief

“ Sweet!!!!! ” -cjjt

“ It's much less efficient to buy a comic one panel at a time. ” -DanD

“ I love the old look to Superman. This is pretty cool. On the negative, there is no logo on the front, I don't see a name, so I had to turn it over to see it is Superman and the back has NO stats, let alone just the current year. Sorry, I couldn't resist! ” -muskie027
