Classic Fan-Nerd Toy of the Day!

58superman

OK, I guess technically, this is a costume, not a toy... and also, I'll have to say I'm not thrilled with the heading I came up with for this.

Anyway, this is the first off a series of posts of very cool (in my opinion) toys out of old catalogs... this one is the sole 1958 Sears Wish Book item that I thought would be of interest to my readers.

I'm guessing this Superman costume is the same one that used to be advertised all the time in the comics of the 1950s-1960s (usually by the Johnson Smith Co.), except that this one doesn't have the stupid mask being worn by the model. And doesn't this version of the costume look just that much more fun than the Superman Returns version they've been selling in toy departments and stores over the past year or so?
