It has been nearly impossible to find an original in great condition so this reprint is the next best thing for any Marilyn Monroe collector. I concider this the Holy grail as far as Marilyn Memrobila is concerned. Its printed just as the orginal was back in '53 except for 2 give aways. The first being that it has 3 staples instead of 2 as the orginal did and on the upper righ corner instead of a black square theres a black rectangle, however its a true jem for any Marilyn Monroe lover as i am.
You won't be disappointed!

Excellent magazine. Even though this is a limited number reprint of the original 1953 issue I'm extremely excited to have a copy. They are only becoming more rare. Get one while you can.

I was VERY disappointed in the quality of the magazine. It is not what I had hoped for and less than quality. It is a REPRINT on cheap paper and obviously an item of mass production. It was expensive and disappointing for the price I paid. I would not recommend this item to anyone who thought they were getting something special... Big disappointment... I bought this for my husband as he had the original and it went missing. I wanted to replace it for him. He was not the least bit happy with what it turned out to be.

I was giving this as a gift and needed it fast so I paid for expedited shipping. It came sooner than I even expected.
The only drawback to the item is that it had a price tag of $10.95 on the front, under the sealed plastic cover. I had to decide whether to remove the plastic and peel off the tag, or leave the package in tact. I chose the latter, but I think that cheapens it as a collector's item, especially when giving it away as a gift.

Im a young man who is a huge fan of playboy since I was a teenager, maybe I imagined or expected a different first issue! It is a vintage black and white and just one color page but redeems me to the greatest era of playboy! So classy! Fully recommended

I chose this rating, as mag. looked very good. I did not rate it higher, as there was a mark on the inside cover or first page. I am also not sure what the original mag. looked like. I have seen many from the 60's, and the paper is different, but I can't say what it was like in the 50's. It could have a lower rating, or possibly a higher rating. I am not an expert. I hope this helps.
