    Batman #1 (DC, 1940) Condition: FR. If you are looking for a low-grade, affordable copy of this major DC key, here it is. Complete, with cream pages, this copy could be your best opportunity to obtain an unrestored example of Batman #1. The spine is split the entire length of the book, and there is a piece detached from the back cover, making this an ideal candidate for restoration. Perhaps you just need a back cover, as many copies are missing the pin-up. This one falls towards the lower end of the FR spectrum, and it will be available for inspection during lot viewing at the auction. Whether you intend to leave it alone, or have it fixed up, you can never have too many copies of this historic issue laying around the house. Origin of Batman reprinted. First appearance of the Joker and Catwoman. Overstreet 2003 GD 2.0 value = $6,767.
