    Description

    Playboy #1 (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC VF- 7.5 White pages. This copy's got great eye appeal with a hard-to-find snow-white cover graced by Marilyn Monroe. MM also contributed the iconic nude center poster, essentially becoming the first Playmate of the Month, although here she was referred to as the "Sweetheart of the Month." A Big Band Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey article, "VIP On Sex" by Virgil Partch, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fiction (Sherlock Holmes) were highlights as well. Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census 4/19: 10 in 7.5, 14 higher.
