Superman's wardrobe is going up for auction

Here in the Indianapolis area is a man who owns a great deal of Superman live-action film memomorabilia. After trying unsuccessfully to showcase his collection in a local "superhero museum," Dane Nash has run into a bit of misfortune. Financial problems have forced him to liquidate his collection in a court-ordered auction, to be held January 22.

There are some impressive items in this collection, especially if you're a Superman fan. In particular, it includes Superman costumes going all the way back to George Reeves.

It's sad that the guy has to give these things up -- but if he's in financial dire straits, it's probably a good thing that he DOES have these items available, to help bail him out!

I wonder if this is the same man who used to own the Batboat from the old 1960s Batman TV show? It did used to be here in Indy.

I hope that he does well at the auction. But what a shame that he HAS to give these up.

Those are some really fabulous costumes.

which USA Today picked up from the Indy Star says Nash's Batboat was a replica. Still cool, though.

Yeah, I'll take a replica. Love to zoom around Geist in it. :-)

Auction is tomorrow!
