    Description

    Playboy #1 (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC FN+ 6.5 White pages. Demand for nice copies of the iconic issue remains strong, as evidenced by our recent offerings. The grade here ranks the copy pretty high on CGC's census, and the white pages set it off from other copies in the grade. Marilyn Monroe popularity is as high as it's ever been, and that along with it being the premiere issue of such a groundbreaking and longrunning magazine means it might be a good time to get your copy! Marilyn, of course, is featured on the cover and on the enclosed "Sweetheart of the Month" two-page poster. There's also a Big Band feature on Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey. "VIP On Sex" by Virgil Partch, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fiction (Sherlock Holmes). CGC census 11/12: 9 in 6.5, 20 higher.
