Superman Leader Novelty - 1940
Notes: American Card Catalog reference is R146. Cards are approximately 2-3/8" x 2-7/8", with rudimentary 3-color art with titles outside candy boxes and story text inside. "This is one of a series of 48 exciting adventures of Superman" hints that a further expansion had been planned. A separate version with blank backs, cut out of candy boxes, is observed. Scans are posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.
