    Description

    Playboy #1 (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC GD/VG 3.0 White pages. Prices realized for the premiere issue have been on the rise. For CGC GD/VG 3.0, auction results as traced by GPA for CGC Comics (GPAnalysis.com) show an increase of over 100% between 2015 and the most recent results from June 2016. Despite the modest grade of the copy, the interior pages are sparkling white. The Marilyn Monroe cover and center poster are the highlights, of course, but the rest of the issue was no less interesting, with a feature on Big Band legends Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, a cartoon montage ("VIP On Sex") by Virgil Partch, and a Sherlock Holmes story by the great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census 1/17: 9 in 3.0, 110 higher.
