Superhero tie-ins and Red Skull Cherry 7-Up

I’d like to know what the first product released that bore a superhero image was. A ring? A glass? A belt buckle? No matter what it was, I cannot imagine that it was weirder than Green Lantern GloBalls or Marvel Comics toilet paper.

I have seen some of these things in person but there are so many more. Every time I think I have seen the oddest thing to tie into a comic book character, I see a new addition the annals of the awkward such as Red Skull Cherry 7-Up… mein gott. What were they thinking?
