Superman 75th Anniversary Souvenir Sheet

The Canada Postal Service has issued five new stamps in assorted formats that have a postage value of permanent domestic rate named "Superman 75th Anniversary" on the 10th of September 2013. This issue depicts six different Superman stamps with the man of steel in action. The special 5 booklets set and coil each feature a different Superman comic cover that was taken from past issues. Its been 75 years since the Toronto-born artist Joe Shuster created the fantasy hero Superman. Superman was introduced in Action Comics #1 in 1938. He was so popular that it only took 4 issues to create a large fan base crying for more. The only thing I don't like about this issue is that its only available to Canadians, meaning it going to cost me more to aquire it. If you have relatives or friends in Canada, I suggest you call them and have them pick up a set for you if they are still available.

"Superman 75th Anniversary" stamps can be purchase as Booklets of 10, Souvenir sheet, Coil of 75, Coil strip of 4, Coil strip of 10 and assorted FDCs.
