Not the Super-Ball I Grew Up With

OK. When I was 8 or 10, Wham-O merchandised the Superball. Now widely available as knock-offs abound (and rebound), the originals were a dull purplish color and about halfway between the size of a golf ball and a tennis ball.



This Super-Ball, on the other hand, is bigger than a softball! Under the "E" in Superman, is a fragment of a "Look! Up in the Air!" headline. Under the "M," kind of upside down, is a smaller headline, "Superman and Parasite Battle in City Sewers."


The image of Superman is kind of like a Grummett face, do ya think?
See ya next time!
