It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…Superman Collectibles!

Great Caesar’s ghost! Our favorite OG hero, Superman has been around since 1938, when he debuted in Action Comics issue #1. As an infant, Kal-El was sent to Earth before his native planet Krypton exploded. Raised by humans and renamed Clark Kent, the Man of Steel exhibited superhuman strength and seeming indestructibility from a young age.

Superman may keep his identity a super secret by pretending to be a mild-mannered reporter at the Daily Planet, we can’t keep our love for the last son of Krypton under wraps! Scoop up these superb collectibles — before Lex Luthor gets to them first.

Superman Kenner Super Powers Action Figure

One of DC’s most popular characters, Superman action figures still fetch top dollar if they are sealed in their original packaging. You’ll have to be faster than a speeding bullet to pick up Kenner’s sealed Super Powers Action Figure when it comes to auction, though — these things sell FAST, even at $849!


Superman Lunchbox (1954)

Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a…1954 mint condition Superman lunchbox! Don’t let kryptonite contaminate your meal — keep it safe in one of the most sought-after lunchboxes to have ever existed. This $1,200 metal lunch box features the Man of Steel battling a robot (with not a single perfectly-styled hair out of place).


1940 Gum Inc. Superman Collector Cards

When even the empty wrappers and display boxes from a set are worth money, you can rest assured that the cards featuring a Golden Age superman command top dollar. These cards, released in 1940, are full color and depict our hero in several action-packed scenes. Smaller than today’s cards, they also feature a short description of a character or scene. Count yourself extremely lucky if you can get your hands on cards 49-72 — they’re the rarest and at upwards of $1,200 for a single ungraded card!


Warhol Limited Edition Signed Superman Print

We’d leap over tall buildings in a single bound to capture a limited edition, signed copy of Andy Warhol’s Superman screenprint with diamond dust. This $200,000 38X38 print captures our superhero mid-ascent and features his iconic red and blue costume. We guess Campbell’s isn’t the only kind of “Supe” Warhol will be remembered for painting!


Christopher Reeve Superman Hero Costume Prop Store COA

An extremely rare costume worn by the square-jawed Christopher Reeve incarnation of our favorite Kryptonian is now available for sale. The instantly recognizable blue costume was worn during flight scenes in 1978’s Superman: The Movie. Have your doubts? Think Lex Luthor is trying to separate you from your hard earned money? Don’t fear, this $100,000 coveted superhero item even comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Action Comics Issue #1

In 2014 Darren Adams sold his nearly pristine comic, Action Comics Issue #1, on Ebay for a truly super price of $3.2 million. Not only did this issue introduce the world to a superhero more powerful than a locomotive, it is also the most expensive comic book in the world (to date). The comic grading service Certified Guaranty Company gave it a condition rating of 9.0, which has never been bested. Only 50-100 original copies are believed to still be in existence.
