“Don’t Mess With The ‘S'” Metropolis Illinois Superman ceramic mug (1998)

Those of you who remember the advertising for Superman in the mid-to-late 1990s will surely remember the slogan, “Don’t Mess With the S!” This deep blue ceramic mug was purchased at the Superman Celebration in Metropolis Illinois back in 1998 (my first year there) and it definitely shows off that slogan proudly.
