Comic books aren’t the only form of print increasing in value. A new listing on Heritage Auctions, with four days left, sees the first issue of Playboy from 1953 with white pages and signed by Hugh Hefner himself gaining traction.
It’s rated at 9.4 by CGC and features Marilyn Monroe on the cover along with a poster of her inside as the “Sweetheart of the Month.” CGC has only certified roughly 300 of these issues with only five copies scoring the same or higher in rating — but none have had the white pages along with Hugh Hefner’s autograph.
Currently reaching $39,000 USD over HA, it will be interesting to see what the final price lands on when the action ends.
In other collectible news, a sealed copy of Super Mario 64 has just sold for $1.56 million USD.
