History of Organization:
These items are all related to my love of Superman. I have collected them over the last 3 decades of my life. Some were given as gifts. Most were purchased by me.

Scope and Content:
I love all things Superman, except the movies Superman 3, 4, and 5. They never should have been made! Growing up with three brothers, I rarely had control of the television on Saturday mornings. We watched Super Friends every week. My oldest brother was a big Superman fan. He even had one of the Superman rings! I think that is where my love for Superman began…. watching those cartoons on Saturday mornings and reading my brother’s comics.

In 1978, I saw the movie Superman and had my first celebrity crush on Christopher Reeve. My love for Superman was cemented further with that movie. I think I’ve seen every Superman-related movie or cartoon since then. I began to collect ephemeral at some point in high school.

In the 1990s, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman aired on tv. This show took my love for Superman (and Dean Cain) to a new level. I joined several fan groups on AOL and made a few life-long friends. We traveled to Los Angeles to tour Warner Brothers Studio and I met Dean Cain. Through the years, I have remained a fan, even getting a tattoo on my ankle.

This archive showcases my collection of Superman artifacts. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! There are several items that are not listed in the archive, such as my brother’s Superman ring. I inherited it when he passed away. I also have a copy of the Superman comic that was published in February 1969, the month that I was born. I keep both of these items in a locked fireproof case.

This collection is online, so you may peruse it at your leisure.
