    More Information:

    Playboy enthusiast Wayne McDonald begin putting his impressive magazine collection together some nearly 45 years ago. He joined the Playboy Club in Boston in 1971, and shortly thereafter began the ambitious  quest to meet as many Playmates as possible, and more importantly, to meet the Head Playboy himself, Hugh Hefner. Over the years, with the associated issues of Playboy in hand, Wayne not only met dozens of Playmates, he chronicled the meetings with photos and signatures of Playmates on their centerfolds.

    Wayne's presence at the events did not go unnoticed by Hef and his Playboy associates. As a result, he was interviewed on multiple occasions, including for a 2008 German documentary "Let's Play, Boy" commemorating Hefner's 80th birthday and for "Las Vegas Round the Clock."

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
