    Description

    Playboy #1 Page 3 Copy (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC VF- 7.5 White pages. That the "Page 3 Copy" is much more rare than the more common newsstand copy is verified by CGC's data. There have been only 31 Universal certifications of "Page 3" copies compared to 107 Universal certifications of the newsstand edition to date. And just five other "Page 3" copies have earned higher grades from CGC than this offering. An added attraction for this clean copy is its page quality. The premiere issue of the definitive men's magazine featured a Marilyn Monroe cover and nude poster, a precursor to the Playmate of the Month feature that would soon become synonymous with the publication. CGC census 10/15 for the "Page 3 Copy": 3 in 7.5, 5 higher.
