Got me! Hook, line and sinker. Of course it's actually April 2nd for me now, so I think I'm entitled to feel a little less silly than I do. But not much. :smiley1:

Ben - By an odd quirk of timing I am actually in L.A. today, and seriously considering coming over to smack you for this. :grin: Nicely done!

Good one Ben....
Thanks! With my sloppy Photoshop work, I didn't know if I could actually fool anyone into believing it long enough to reach the reveal.
I've discussed the potential of this packaging variation (©1977a Superman) with Brian, Dan, Rob, Mike and several other board members. The consensus seems to point toward its existence being highly likely.
With that in mind, it seemed like a good, light-hearted hoax. It was either that or the Mego-branded Aquaman "1st Issue" card. I expect both to surface some day, but I decided the ©1977a Superman was a more plausible 'discovery.'
