    I have all like-new issues for sale - $2 each (plus postage) from when I ended up receiving PB for free for many years via subscription.

    I'd rather sell entire years as a set instead of breaking them up.

    I have:

    1999 - missing Feb, March, April, July, August, Sept

    2000 - missing Jan, April, May, July, Nov

    2001 - missing Sept

    2002 - all 12 issues

    2003 - all 12 issues

    2004 - missing June, Oct, Nov

    2005 - all 12 issues

    2006 - missing Nov

    2007 - missing Nov, Dec

    Let me know if interested, I can bring them to Allentown on Friday to save postage costs.

    Haha, I have everything but one month from like July 2002-present day. Just can't bring myself to throw them away. The new ones I don't even read or open anymore they just get added to the storage box.

    Wow, yeah, that's a lot of Boobs!!!

    These are just sitting in my attic - time to get rid of them.

    Hope someone's interested - a lot of the articles are really good if you lean way to the left.........(yeah, yeah, that's an OLD joke!!)

    I used to have a subscription for I think 1978, but that was years ago and since don't have them. I was at a comicbook convention years ago (1980's) and was offered by a dealer there the 1st issue of Penthouse. Price $75.00

    #5 2 years ago

    No, but I do collect Playbug magazines.

    Wacky Packages?

    #7 2 years ago

    The best - Bill Griffith of Zippy fame did some of those!!! I still have a stash of those in my attic, loved those growing up!

    #8 2 years ago

    A long time ago I had the whole season 4-8. I bought a box of them each season when they came out.

    #9 2 years ago

    I actually just received 4 boxes from my fathers neighbor. They date back to 1966. There are 70's, 80's, 90's thru 2012. About 60% have never been open. Not all years are complete.

    I have a ton of 60s, 70s, and some 80s I would like to get rid of if someones wants them. I can ship or bring to Expo.

    #11 2 years ago

    The 60's are great just keep a look out for the Vargas girl.

    Yeah, love the older Playboys - they were hefty magazines back in the day!!

    Would love to pick up a complete, nice, March 1976 issue if anyone will part with it.

    #14 2 years ago

    In cleaning up, i found some from the 70s and 80s....I enjoyed seeing the mostly honest views and reminders of the time.
    From $2000 stereos, to dated humor.
    Its role in male sexuality, being one of the few "sources" of the time, sure set some "standards".

    Where else where boobs to be found in the 60's?

    I shared them with my 21 year old son, and while he liked the ads, he couldnt understand the fuss.

    As he replied, put any word into google, and within a few pages, theres more porn than a whole box of playboys!

    Amazing what a few pages did for adolescent males at the time, and its obsolescence now...

    Finally, it rings true to say today, "I read today for the articles!"

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Yes, historical perspective always plays a factor whether talking about pop culture or government history. It's also interesting to see the changes in the styles and body types of the women over the years.

    Guys/girls today can't possibly understand the amount of time and effort involved for horny guys/girls to find naked women/men to look at!! You had to go *public* either attending actual movies in an "adult" movie theater (in usually questionable sections of town so that was an adventure in itself), or purchasing magazines.

    Paul Feig of Freaks and Geeks fame wrote an INCREDIBLY funny story in one of his books about trying to clandestinely purchase photography magazines that featured nudity after riding his bike 10miles to the mall!!!! Hilarious.

    There have always been great articles in Playboy. The jokes page and the stats page were two monthly staples I always looked forward to reading.

    #17 2 years ago

    If anyone has a March 1982 that's in mint condition they want to give away, I'll take it. One of the most beautiful women God ever put on this planet (IMHO), Karen Witter, is the centerfold. She can currently be seen in Sale of the Century reruns! Wowza!

    I always wanted to check out the girls of twin peaks issue that came out.

    Didn't that come out?

    Might be my imagination.

    Little Annie Fannie! Always liked that comic.

    #21 2 years ago

    Probably mine are too sticky to resell

    #22 2 years ago

    The 70's magazines, around the Holidays, always had New Pinball Machines in ads/stories....

    Temporarily distracted me...........

    Anyone have this issue?

    PLAYBOY July 1963

    Or Aug 1979

    #25 2 years ago

    Funny. $.60 in 1963 and they're giving out one subscriptions for $4.99 these days. Hard to pass that up...

    #26 2 years ago

    But that's six plays on a pinball machine or is it twelve? I don't know if 5 cents machines were still out in 1963?

    #27 2 years ago

    "PLAYBOY July 1963" Who's in that one??

    I know Connie Mason is in June '63.............

    #28 2 years ago

    Dorothy Stratten

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Dorothy Stratten

    not in 63 its not. she was born in 60.

    #30 2 years ago

    Oops! Sorry! That one was the sci-fi authors panel!

    #31 2 years ago

    Anybody with a June 1971 issue and willing to sell it? Let me know!

    #32 2 years ago

    Just for fun, I had a girlfriend when I was a senior 1986 she was 16. Looked just like Dorothy Stratton. She would stop guys in her tracks. Stop them. She liked my car it was an 81 Camaro nothing special. Gold. Ok special stereo. Alpine.

    I barely remember her name but, she looked just like Dorothy Stratton.

    I don't know about that. Seems the local supermarkets always had Playboy, Penthouse, and other mags like these in the regular magazine section, usually on the bottom shelf, and before they were in plastic bags, so there was no problem for any of the kids in the neighborhood to go sit there and read them.

    Sometimes there would be stacks of them in the restrooms of these places too. Not saying I made a habit of sitting there reading them, but there they were and easily accessible. And nobody seemed to care.

    In St. Louis in the mid 60's Playboy was always behind the drugstore counter. It took everything I had to get up the nerve to ask for a copy. The check out guys usually would not sell me a copy. The women always did with a sly smile. 60-75 cents back then.
    I still have boxes of them but my son took most of the fold-outs for his clubhouse in the woods back in the 80's. Damn kids!

    That's swingin' California for yah!! Actually, yes, they had all the skin mags in the 7-11 and whatnot.......but I was never ballsy enough to purchase!!!

    #37 2 years ago
    Quoted from Tsskinne:

    I have from like July 2002 to the present. The new ones I don't even open: they just get added to the storage box.

    The first issue is nominally from December 1953 but didn't have a specific date on it because they didn't know how long it would take to sell out and when they would be able to fund the second issue. Playmates were only a single page pic for the first several months before changing to two pages. Marion Stafford was the first Playmate of the Month with a 3-page foldout centerfold in March 1956. I have every issue from the first two-page Playmate to now. I never bothered with the very early issues because (A) they don't have much in pictures or content, (B) they can be very pricey if in very good condition, and (C) anything interesting in them has since been reprinted in various anthologies or special editions. And, much like Tsskinne, I haven't opened any of my subscription issues in years: the sealed copies just get added to the collection.

    #38 2 years ago

    Cheap reprints are available on lower quality paper...

    Was a big collector in my teenage years lol

    #40 2 years ago

    My dad caught me looking at his Playboy when I was 8
    I thought I'd get an ass whooping, but they just laughed.
    That took me to Penthouse magazine and strip clubs when I was 16, driving a 68 GTO, and a fake ID
    Hustler, took over at 18, but was disturbing some times.
    I don't think I've seen a playboy in 20 years, but maybe you're like me, I can see the cover, and remember the centerfold.
    Need some member berries!

    My older brother was a collector of these magazines. I was too busy with all the real girls in the neighborhood.

    Sometime in the late 70s I found the box of those magazines in the garage gathering dust so I traded them to a buddy for some fancy dual chamber pipe with an aquarium pump that ran it. We would later christen it the "weed waster". Needless to say my brother was pretty pissed off when he found out.

    #47 2 years ago

    Hilarious as the buddy I made the trade with just stopped by work and we both had a good laugh.

    Fast forward to the late 90s and I'm cleaning out mom's garage and I find another box with all the 80s mags in it. My brother's long since married and moved away so I figure there would be no harm in making another trade. This time for several Sega systems and games with the very same friend.

    Few = Three, so yeah, come and get 'em!! You coming to York this year??? Haven't seen you in what, over 25 years!!!!

    #50 1 year ago
