Here we have a 1964 Superman In Action (Polaner jelly jar) glass, one of the great examples from the National Periodicals Publications Company. This glass is about 4 1/4 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide. I had to lighten up the pictures because it was very hard to get a good picture of the white/grey on the glass. The glass shows 3 different images, Superman stopping a bus, Superman pulling a chariot, and Superman saving a man. These jars originally came filled with jelly, had their own lids which most people seem to have thrown away, and they came in two different sizes. The larger size is about 5 and 1/2 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches wide. There were originally 6 different titled glasses, and each title had 6 different color schemes, making a total of 72 different available combinations. To find any of these that survived is itself a task, and those with all original high gloss, very tough, still filled with jelly and the lid, near impossible. Luckily most collectors are happy with just the glass.
*****We sell many types of Super Hero glasses and will be listing more of them as we clean out our storage. We'll have glasses from D.C. comics, N.P.P. and others thru out our time here. We also will bring many other Super Hero related merchandise in addition to just about anything Star Wars you can think of and a lot of items you didn't know existed.*****
This great Superman glass has been used over the years but the graphics are still nice, surprisingly fading to the red lettering but not much to the white graphics?
In that same area on one side just under and partially thru the word Superman, there appears to be a slight groove, seems to be a manufacturing defect in the process of making the glass, because it does not go thru the entire glass and there is no crack associated with this groove. I have seen this before on other glasses but this does not take away from the appearance of the Superman image, in fact it's nearly impossible to see with the colored paper inside the glass for display.
There does seem to be a few small micro flea bites/chips you can see when holding up to the light, very hard to see or find otherwise, but nothing that prevents the glass from being displayed or even used as none of them have gotten worse. Not the best shape glass but certainly not the worst by far, it's hard to find this color glass at all as well.
If you would like more pictures please let me know. This glass does not have any cracks and is solid, and a great display for the Superman collector!
Some of the unique things you can find on these glasses can include but are not limited to:
minor scratches, waviness in the glass in areas, a bump on the rim, striation type marks that can resemble scratches in an upwards/downwards pattern that are in a straight line, spread out tiny dots of colors that were used on this glass in areas they shouldn't be in, like in the yellow moon series glasses for example or the appearance of bubbles under the graphics on some types of these glasses, which could be glue adhesive, and then there are even flea bites, which are bubbles in the glass that popped during the making process and left a little bitty hole resembling a chip. Any manufacturing blemish not mentioned, etc. Any collectors of these glasses know exactly what I mean when I say to find a perfect one of these is a difficult task.
We clean these glasses using a mild solution and inspect for damages, and off they go to someone who will appreciate them as much as we do our own ever growing collection!
Now with these items in mind, you are looking at a great glass with again, great condition, minus the groove slice on one side, hardly noticeable as you can display it 3 ways. It is actually in great shape for a 45 yr old glass. We have taken pictures of all 3 graphics so you can see each image. You can copy the image to your computers program and use windows image viewer to zoom in for a closer look if you cannot see a large enough pic, but if you would like more pics, please let us know and we will send them to you.
Our items may be listed on another auction site as well, so whoever wins it first has 7 days to pay for the item. After that time, the 2nd winner, (if there is one), will get a chance to own the item next. If neither pay, the item will be relisted. If something sells elsewhere, we will put a note on that auction here or take the auction off until the time has passed for payment to arrive. We would not keep a listing going if it has sold without letting others know it may not be available. We sometimes have more than one of the same, and if we do, the auction will specify that information.
