"Superman-Tim Club" Button (1940's)

"In 1942 Tim Publications created an official Superman fan club for younger boys (older boys got a Gene Autry club) which featured a 6″ x 9″ sized now hard to find monthly comic book. The books were mainly produced to sell the Tim clothing line, but they also had the second benefit of teaching character building lessons while entertaining the kids. Club membership also included a (you guessed it) membership card and a pin. Since the club existed during part the World war II era Tim would also give kids useful tips on war related things like killing your enemy. Sadly the club only lasted for about eight years, so today anything associated with the club is very rare and hard to find."
