Discovered: Mego 3rd Series Carded Aquaman!

Leapin’ Lampreys! a major Vintage Mego Discovery!

The Third Series Mego “Kresge” Card for Aquaman has recently surfaced (see what I did there?). I use quotes around Kresge because these early cards were sold in other stores as the “Mason’s” price tag on this example loudly suggests. It’s been rumoured to exist but it’s nice to finally see one, which is pictured with the first version Kresge version for comparison.

Rare Mego Aquaman Discovery

As you can the major difference in the card’s look (other than having no Kresge Branding) is the addition of Tarzan and Shazam! to the header and the removal of Captain America. Marvel didn’t like mingling their heroes with their Distinguished Competition and that’s a very early change for Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes.

The backers showcase similar changes for the back, so exciting to have new finds still pouring in for classic Mego collectors.

Thanks to our friend Steve Fink for the amazing share.
