Bandai Namco DC Super Heroes Superman arcade card (2017)

2017NamcoArcadeCard

Andamiro / Bandai Namco Amusements has released a DC Super Heroes coin and card pusher arcade game.  Found in various arcades throughout the world, the game has four sides which display different DC Comics heroes per side: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and The Flash.  The game not only pushes tokens for “tickets” (sometimes awarded as “points” on the swipe card), but it features collectible character cards with stats on the reverse side.  The cards are promoted under the banner of DC Comics Originals and the characters include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, The Joker, Lex Luthor, Cheetah, and others.

This is the Superman card, number 002, that features the now classic promotional artwork of Jose Garcia Lopez.  It took a few tries, but it finally dropped.

Interestingly, the stats on the back refer to Superman’s height being 6’3” and his weight being 225 lbs.  Being the “obsessed fan” that I am, its apparent that they mixed the Bronze Age height with the Superman: The Movie weight (225 lbs instead of 235 lbs).
