I don't know if it was because of my age in the Sixtys or how Playboy promoted the Playmates but I felt like I knew at least something about each Playmate's personality. I was an avid fan until maybe the first part of 1986. I could remember their names just by looking at their photos. Playmates started doing autograph tours in the 80's where they would be at bookstores or auto shows or other places and you could meet them and get a free autograph instead of having to pay $50 at the Glamourcon conventions. My hometown of Dallas even had a Playboy Club for a short time.
Firstly,"The Complete Centerfolds" is a great book of Playboy history and memorabilia. Everyone knows Marilyn Monroe was the first playmate. But who remembers Jayne Mansfield and Stella Stevens were also Playmates? Many Playmates were actresses in B movies or hosts on Playboy TV. "The Complete Centerfolds" is a great walk down memory lane plus a discovery of what was thought of as sexy in the 1950's. Secondly, the book costs $75 on the Playboy Shop website and only $46 from Amazon.
I've enjoyed just going through the book, page by page, and having all the memories of Playboy pour back into my brain. If you are or were a fan of Playboy for any period of years during their almost 64 years of publishing, "The Complete Centerfolds" brings back many happy memories of experiencing Playboy and the Playboy world.
