Gum Inc.’s 1940 Superman cards are a very rare find. So for someone to find over 100 of them is pretty incredible. And Scarsdale, NY based American Legends has done just that. Starting today at Noon, the company will be selling off 133 1940 Gum Inc. Superman cards via their eBay store (amerlegends).
The cards were recently acquired from an elderly collector who purchased them as a child 75 years ago. What a find indeed! All of the cards are PSA graded, with many grading PSA 5, PSA 6 and PSA 7. Prices go from $49.99 for PSA Graded 2 cards all the way up to $4,499 for a PSA Graded 5 card number 72 (the last card in the series) with many cards priced in the $100 to $500 range.
American Legends owner Mark Rubin had this to say about the collection “This is most significant non-sport purchase we’ve ever made. These cards are so incredibly rare in any grade and these are especially nice. Prior to this collection, I had only purchased a single 1940 Superman card in the 35 plus years I’ve been in trading cards. It’s truly extraordinary.”
If you’re interesting in buying some of the collection or just a card or two….or even just having a look, head on over to the American Legends eBay store today after noon (EST) to see the collection.
