A collector contacted me recently to discuss a costume he has listed on eBay marketed as a Superman III costume. He has asked for assistance in authenticating the suit, and has posted the “Reader Comment” below in the original article (see “Questions About Superman Costumes in the Marketplace: Authenticity, Sources, Quantity“) that initiated my ongoing series of articles about costumes in the marketplace attributed to use by Christopher Reeve in the Superman films of the 70s and 80s.
