Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. Unrestored copies of this key were always snapped up eagerly, but the last few years have seen the demand go to another level.
Batman, who debuted in Detective Comics #27, premiered in his own title less than a year later, and the milestone comic was an instant classic. The Caped Crusader's origin is told, and the Joker and Catwoman both made their first appearances. Co-creator Bob Kane teamed with Jerry Robinson on the cover and on interior story art, while DC legend Sheldon Moldoff also provided interior art for the issue. Overstreet 2012 FN 6.0 value = $51,000; VF 8.0 value = $120,000. CGC census 11/12: 1 in 7.0, 12 higher.
