    Detective Comics #160 (DC, 1950) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. This is the first time we've offered this issue, and it's one of a mere four that have been certified by CGC as of this writing, bearing out our oft-mentioned belief that the early 1950s issues of this title are harder to come by than the 1940s books. In the issue, Batman and Robin head for England and France to defeat the Globetrotter (who sports the exact same purple chapeau as Silver Age Marvel baddie Paste-Pot Pete!). Win Mortimer drew the issue's cover, Dick Sprang handled interior art on Batman, and Carmine Infantino drew a tale of Pow-Wow Smith. Overstreet 2006 FN 6.0 value = $186; VF 8.0 value = $388. CGC census 2/06: 1 in 7.0, 2 higher. From the Collection of Harold Curtis.
