A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, a vintage Super Powers toy collection, and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.
This Week’s Collector – Vintage Super Powers Toy Collection
This week’s collector is from Jeremy. He is sharing his Super Powers toy collection from when he was growing up in the 80’s. This toy line is so old school and it was great going down memory lane with his story.
I was a fan of Superman, Batman and The Flash when I was a kid. Still enjoy reading a few comic arcs here and there now. When I saw your column at your site I wanted to dig up my Super Power toys. This line came from DC Comics and produced three comic book mini-series. I would get a few figures for my birthday or the holidays. I also remember getting a Captain America and Spider-Man figure from my aunt who thought it was from the same set. I got the Hall of Justice set for Christmas and that was one of my favorite gifts of all time.
I really enjoyed your story Jeremy. That DC Comics toy line takes me back to when I was a kid. My friend had the Hall of Justice set.
It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.
