    Playboy V16#1 Signed by Hugh Hefner (HMH Publishing, 1969) CGC Qualified VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. One of the most distinctive covers in the magazine's multi-decade run was this white cover with the embossed Playboy bunny, perfect for displaying the biggest, boldest autograph of Hugh Hefner we've ever seen. CGC doesn't authenticate autographs unless they witness the signing, so a Qualified grade was given with the note, "'Hugh Hefner' written on cover in marker. (Small sticker attached to cover)." The autograph has been certified, however, by noted authenticator PSA/DNA, and it is the company's sticker that CGC has referenced. The Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA accompanies this lot. This is the 15-year anniversary issue, featuring articles by Dr. Martin Luther King, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Frederik Pohl, and Art Buchwald.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 1496123001 and purchase grader's notes if available.
