    Playboy #1 Signed by Hugh Hefner (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white to white pages. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner passed away in 2017, leaving the legacy of a publishing and entertainment empire that began with this issue. His innovative amalgam of beautiful women, fiction by the top names of the day, contributions from top-notch cartoonists, and timely articles on topics important to the modern man quickly made his magazine the tops in its field. The Marilyn Monroe cover and "Sweetheart of the Month" two-page poster ensured its immediate impact. Hefner has signed the front cover of this copy, and a Letter of Authenticity is enclosed from JSA Authentication certifying the signature. CGC notes, "'Hugh Hefner' written in marker." Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census 1/18: 1 in 3.5, 123 higher.
