Most Valuable Playboy (Ballers and Babes, #1) by Lauren BlakelyHands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.
Dont let the fact that Im the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, Im only a player on the field. Ive kept my pants zipped all season long and it has been long because nothings more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owners recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister whos dead set on winning more than a date with me.
Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.
Shes my best friends sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I dont even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that shes my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me weve got to keep up the act while hes negotiating my contract.
What happens next when faking it starts to feel all too real?
Your Old Magazine Could Be Worth $50,000 Or More. Heres How to Sell It
There are many reasons to read Playboy Magazine : articles, pictures, and inherent collector's value? I still think this may be some sort of hoax, but last week, Playboy magazine announced that they would no longer be featuring fully naked women in their magazine. In other news, McDonald's announced that they were no longer serving hamburgers, Starbucks will only serve mineral water, Eminem will now play the cello and cats are now going to be helpful. Those were all jokes, by the way, but this Playboy news is huge. For decades, Playboy has been known for naked women, and now they've announced that they will no longer provide that product. It makes perfect sense though. As anyone can point out, every smartphone and computer is just a few clicks away from all kinds of depravity to which Playboy , Hustler and Penthouse can't even come close.

In , I set out to establish the definitive collector's price guide for Playboy magazine. A few years down the road, around , I had it pretty much complete and began to expand into other titles, like Sports Illustrated, Mad, Life and Rolling Stone. I encourage you to use the price guide in determining values and doing research. However, the price guide will not give you an indication of future values. Only by bidding on and winning this report will you be able to identify the issues likely to appreciate faster. Now, as I update the Playboy selections, I am finding from my wealth of pricing and derivative information certain issues which are poised to appreciate faster than the norm.
Geographic Playboy Rolling Stone Sat. The first issue was particularly momentous, since it carried a nude photograph of Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe that Hefner had purchased. The photos were originally for a calendar. Hefner was so unsure of the magazine's success that the first issue carried no date. The rest, as they say, is history. Playboy continued to publish monthly every month since then, with the exception of March, The magazine's growth had been so phenomenal and rapid, that the staff was all but burnt out and needed time to reorganize.
Many in the collectible universe fail to see the obvious in the trading community: as magazines change hands, due to increased activity fomented by the internet, the quality of what's available continues to degrade. For that reason, it's time for serious speculators to flesh out the high-grade issues that will be in demand by the buying public. To that end, I've selected what I believe are the 50 top Playboy magazines which you can buy now and hold for 35 years in some cases less as they appreciate in value faster than the average issue. I've set up this list to reflect what I believe to offer the best return on investment with a low initial outlay threshold. Can be purchased for a fair price today and should skyrocket over the years. While there were many copies sold and many in circulation, the magazine is huge and increasingly difficult to find in mint or near mint condition.
