Metropolis Illinois Superman Celebration “Round Tuit” wooden token (1998)

1998SupermanCelebrationRoundTuit

Another promotional collectible that was sold around town in Metropolis Illinois was this “Round Tuit” wooden token. The images on the wooden token are printed in red ink. On the face of the token is an interpretation of the classic image of Superman originally drawn by co-creator Joe Shuster and has the words “Metropolis Illinois”. On the reverse side of the token is an ’S’ symbol with the words “Round Tuit”.

“Round Tuit” is a merge of the old phrase, “when I get around to it.” A “Round Tuit” token is traditionally kept and, as its mid-20th century fable says, gives the owner the ability to do things that they’ve put-off for a while.
