    Description

    Playboy #1 (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC VF- 7.5 White pages. The eye appeal of this 7.5 copy surpasses many we've seen in higher grades, and it has unsurpassed white pages! The appealing elements that made Playboy so popular for well over 50 years were all here in the premiere issue beautiful women (Marilyn Monroe cover and "Sweetheart of the Month" two-page poster), music and other timely non-fiction (Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey Big Band article), exceptional cartoons ("VIP On Sex" by Virgil Partch), and must-read fiction (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes). Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census 5/19: 11 in 7.5, 15 higher.
