2/25 We just purchased 800 more vintage Playboys and are in the process of grading them, and adding them to the catalog. There are quite a lot more of 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. It'll take us a week or so to grade them, sleeve them and backer board them. So keep checking back if we are currently out of something.

Currently buying entire collections. Only looking for excellent condition. We are in Florida. If you are in Florida or southern Georgia, will will come to you.
Like New: This is how you would see it sitting on a newsstand. The first thought is that it would be in perfect condition. While most are, some will have minor damage or scuffing to the top or bottom of the spine. This is simply from the distributor or store owner handling it to unbox and place it on the shelf. Centerfold is intact and in perfect condition.
Fine/Near Mint: Does not appear to have ever been read. Front and back covers are completely flawless. No scratches, folds, creases or blemishes of any type. The spine is also free of any scuffs or scratches. The delineator between FINE and NEAR MINT is that the staples on NEAR MINT will be in the best condition possible. In FINE condition the staples may show ageing but no rust. All inside pages will be flawless. The contents page and all others should be as white as possible considering the age of the magazine. The whiter they are, the more value the magazine carries. Centerfold is intact and in perfect condition.
Very Good: The issue has obviously been read and has a reasonable amount of handling evidence. Both covers should be free of any tears or folds. Some minor scuffing may be present. There should only be very small wrinkling near the staples but no tearing. All inside pages are intact and tight against the staples. Centerfold is completely flawless. No evidence of any humidity exposure. Sometimes we will add a plus or minus to the description for minor differences such as staple discoloration.
Good: The cover will have obvious signs of wear and be only slightly pulling from the staples. Ordinary fading on cover and inside pages are allowed but nothing extensive. All pages including centerfold will be intact. Some folding at the upper corners of the pages is allowed. The staples may be rusted or discolored. Wear along the spine, or cover scuffing is permissible.
We don’t deal in issues in qualities less than the ones stated above. Sometimes the lower quality ones will arrive mixed in with collections we purchase. We put them on the site as LTP (Less Than Perfect) for around $2.75. This is for the folks that just need an article or interview since they still have a readability factor.
We ship every issue, no matter what the value, sleeved in archival quality 2 mil acid-free polypropylene with acid-free backer boards.
