Metropolis Illinois “I Am Superman” patch (1990s)

This “I Am Superman” patch was available everywhere in Metropolis Illinois beginning in the 1990s. Its bold Superman ‘S’ symbol really pops within its red and blue surroundings. In hindsight, in all my years of visiting the Superman Celebration in those days, I’m saddened that I didn’t think to buy more than one of these.

Ben Cooper Superman costume (1970)

This is the 1970 version of the Ben Cooper Superman costume with its original box. The costume features flame retardant materials and comes with a vinyl cape and plastic “domino” mask. It’s amazing to me that these costumes cost only $2.96 at the time. This version of the costume continued to be sold through the early 1970s until they revised the costume’s material and included a face mask instead of the domino mask.
