    World's Best Comics #1 (DC, 1941) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. This one-issue title is the precursor to the long-running, World's Finest Comics, featuring Superman and Batman (with the ever-present Robin) team-up stories. With a whopping 96 pages and a cardboard cover, this issue doesn't usually turn up in conditions this nice, and this copy has the third highest grade yet awarded for this issue (with one copy sitting at 7.5 and three copies sharing the VF 8.0 slot). The cover, by Fred Ray, is one of the most recognizable among Golden Age collectors. A great blockbuster book to add to your Golden Age DC collection. Overstreet 2012 FN 6.0 value = $4,425; VF 8.0 value = $10,400. CGC census 5/13: 9 in 7.0, 4 higher.
