My best friends grandpa gave up basically....he has been collecting them for his whole life, literally... he didnt even open most, or take the subscription cards out.... i got a call from my best friend in Baghdad last night telling me that if i wasnt at the recycling center in 5 minutes they were shreaded....sadly i live 10 minutes away, without 5oclock traffic.... so i drove as fast as humanly possible, and needless to say i ended up with 5 orange/apple boxes, 2 other boxes, and several of those mag. organizers librarys use....full... almost all are mint condition.... some with small water damage but... hey and she still has the early 60s too!

shiz... my camera crapped out and this is the only one that will upload... June of 1967, for the record i was born in 1984, which means that this is 17 years older than me... scary...


I WILL POST A LIST OF THE ISSUSES I AM MISSING (approximately 15 is my guess) and hopefully somebody will know where a COMPLETELY STERYL, JIZ FREE one can be found to match the ones i already have.... and theres lots of doubles to, so i will post those as well... i will also post some pics of the collector issues still in plastic... retro porn from the silent film era....

now its time to look on ebay, and see if some of these are worth $$bank$$

haha ^^ if someone buys it, great deal! you made out of some old man's treasure! you should split it with him

5 bucks a pop right? lets say without inflation.

5X 12 = $60

67 to 2006 = 49 years

49 X 60 = $2,940 of playboy mags,

playboys are 5 bucks each right?

Funny thing is that I've also been given 3 large boxes full of old playboys from a friend, and its from his dad/grandpa playboy collection.
As I did my research about a year ago, on how they are going for at ebay. Unfortunately only the 1950's series are worth some money and it has to be in excellent condition. Other than that the 1960's series are only about 0 cent - 99c each.
What I've noticed also is it helps to list 3 or more at a time as a bundle and each month must be in sequence. And again it will really help if each will have centerfolds and complete pages and again excellent condition without any ripped, stained, missing pages, etc..

I still have these playboys sitting in my garage to this day, maybe to list it on ebay. But you've got the idea, that its not really a money making or otherwise I would have sold mine longtime ago.
The 1950 series.... its a different ballgame.

Goodluck on selling them, let me know how it goes.
