    Description

    Playboy #1 Newsstand Edition (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC FN+ 6.5 White pages. This sparkling copy with white pages impresses as a higher grade on initial review. The usual smudges typically encountered on the white covers are absent -- it's super-clean! If you've been thinking about nabbing a nice copy of the iconic issue without paying Near Mint prices, nab here! Inside the famous Marilyn Monroe cover, the features include the forerunner of the "Playmate of the Month" pictorial, the "Sweetheart of the Month", a two-page poster of MM, plus a Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey article, "VIP On Sex" by Virgil Partch. and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fiction ("Sherlock Holmes"). CGC census 10/12: 9 in 6.5, 20 higher.
