    Description

    Original Lifetime Playboy Club Plaque Signed by Hugh Hefner w/Lifetime Playboy Subscription (c. 1960). In the early years of Playboy, readers were encouraged to join the Lifetime Playboy Club, the primary benefit of which was a lifetime membership to Hugh Hefner's fledgling magazine. An extra benefit was that the membership could be transferred one time, either before or after the member's death. To the best of charter member John Basil's recollection, the membership "didn't cost much, and, after all, he had already offered Hef the outrageous sum of $5 for the first issue (see previous lot!), an issue he had missed when it hit the newsstands in limited numbers in late 1953. The winning bidder of this featured lot gets the attractive and unique 17" x 14" Lifetime Playboy Club plaque and the associated membership card, both signed by Hef himself, and the lifetime subscription to Playboy (transfer confirmed by Heritage Auction Galleries with Playboy). Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
