Nano Letters - A Novel Feature in Aluminum Cluster Photoionization Spectra and Possibility of Electron Pairing at T ≳ 100 K (ACS Publications)
Aluminum superatoms appear to be superconductive at 100K. Probably because they exhibit cooper pair electron orbits. As for bulk manufacturing superatoms...

Room Temperature Superconductivity Found in Graphite Grains - Technology Review
Unfortunately, this can not be used as a bulk material, but there's definitely a surface effect of some kind at the grain boundaries.

Proximity-induced high-temperature superconductivity in the topological insulators Bi2Se3 and Bi2Te3 : Nature Communications : Nature Publishing Group
Oh wow, improved superconductivity just by sticking a topological insulator on top of/pressing up against a cuperate. No fancy joining or bonding or chemical interaction or plasma deposition. Just touching basically, bridged by a thin layer of double sided scotch tape.

New material could help cut future energy losses - University of Liverpool
buckyballs superconduct at room temps if the electron orbits are squeezed? I wonder how you go about doing the squeezing at a bulk level...
