Superman Belt and Buckle


Here's a 1956 Kellogg's Corn Flakes tie-in ad from DC. Show everyone you're a SUPERMAN fan, it says. I don't know...why do I think the more likely scenario would be that some bully sees your belt buckle and says, "So you think you're as tough as Superman, huh?" and it all goes to hell from there? Oh and did no one notice that Superman's belt is actually yellow...not red? Or would a yellow belt have looked even wimpier?

A quarter for that sweet collectible? When I get my damn time machine to work I will have to build a storage shed on the back to hold all the awesome stuff from the past that I am bringing to the future with me.

I'm just happy to see the ad for this belt! Somewhere in my Flickr Superman set, I have a photo of the actual item!
