This collection of Playboy Magazine back issues from 1977 - 2000 was placed on consignment. We perused every one, and all include the centerfold and all pages. Most can be classified as in original condition—I believe the original owner collected these for invesment, and most look like they've never even been read! (After listing these online I learned that the consignors had actually torn the shrinkwrap off most of these magazines before turning them over for sale! R. Arden Johnson) The few exceptions to condition are noted. Unless noted otherwise there is only one (1) copy of each issue available!
