Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman fans rejoice!
This show was my first ever introduction to the Man of Steel and holds a lot of sentimental value to me. The series ran on ABC in the ninety’s and starred Dean Cain as Superman/Clark Kent and Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane.
Since Christopher Reeve’s representation of Superman in the 70’s, this was one of the first TV Series of Superman to catch the public eye, and it proved very popular. Some even say that Smallville wouldn’t have launched at all without the success of Lois & Clark.
And now, you can be the proud owner of the very Superman suit that Dean Cain wore in the series! The Propstore’s TV Treasures are hosting an auction which features this iconic suit which is a beloved part of the Superman legacy. Here are some images of the item for sale.
Here is the official lot description;
Superman’s (Dean Cain) signature superhero costume from the comedy-drama series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. This signature superhero costume includes a cherry red nylon blend cape with large embroidered yellow ‘S’ shield, royal blue spandex unitard with embroidered red/yellow ‘S’ shield affixed to chest, cherry red spandex padded briefs and yellow spandex/elastic belt with self buckle. The cape is marked ‘94-95’ and the briefs are marked ‘96-97’ in marker on the interior indicating when they were cycled into production. This costume is in very fine, production-used condition overall with vivid original color intensity. It was obtained from the Warner Bros. Corporate Archive with archival tags still attached.
The auction will take place on 1st December 2018. Here is a direct link to the item for up for sale. The item is expected to fetch around $8,000-$10,000 at the auction, which – lets face it – is not a bad price at all! Here is a link to the full catalog of props and memorabilia that Propstore TV Memorabilia have available at that very action, there are hundreds!
Not only do they have the iconic Dean Cain suit up for grabs, but plenty of other Lois & Clark props which are more affordable – including one of the outfits worn by Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane!
