1940 Gum Inc. Superman is one of the most popular trading card sets of all-time. The set holds the distinction of being the first in a long line of releases based on the Man of Steel. It's also considered to be the most valuable.

The 1940 Gum Inc. Superman checklist consists of 72 cards. While all are relatively scarce, the final 24 (#49-72) are considered short prints. As such, they can carry a premium over the more common low numbers.

Card fronts feature vivid artwork, usually with Superman saving the day. Backs have a lengthy writeup hyping what's on the front and building up the hero. The bottom of the card has a Superman logo and an ad.

Today, 1940 Gum Inc. Superman cards sell for solid amounts, no matter the condition. They're attractive and they're Superman's first foray into the hobby. In short, it's a piece of pop culture history.
