    Detective Comics #140 (DC, 1948) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages.

It's currently at #74 and nearly certain to move up a few notches this year. This is the highest-graded copy we've offered in eight years, and we've offered a higher grade just once in 20 years! The Batman and Robin starring issue has a Win Mortimer cover and interior art from Dick Sprang and Curt Swan. Overstreet 2019 VF 8.0 value = $16,700. CGC census 7/20: 5 in 8.0, 5 higher.
