Introduction
------------
- About this FAQ

  This FAQ came into being in April 1994, shortly after the debut of
  the Playboy mailing list in February 1994.  This is about the time I
  decided to become a 'serious' collector, and started searching for
  older issues.

  I started collecting the questions and answers on the mailing list,
  then added more information gathered primarily from the 40th and 35th
  anniversary issues.  Most of the information from the anniversary
  issues falls into the 'interesting fact' category, rather than the
  'frequently asked questions' category.

  If you know of an interesting fact that is not included, please let
  me know.  If it is of general interest, I'll include it (ie the first
  Irish born Playmate with gray eyes who was over 5' 6" tall and loved
  dogs is a little bit too specific).

* About the Playboy Mailing List

  Contact: playboy-request@lovesexy.com (Peggy Wilkins)

  Purpose: Whether you're a collector, a fan, or just a casual reader,
  the Playboy Mailing List offers much to the man or woman who reads
  Playboy. As a discussion list concerning itself with Playboy Magazine
  and Playboy Enterprises, Inc., virtually any related topic is
  appropriate, including, but not limited to: collecting info,
  trade/sale/wanted posts, PEI business news, Hef sightings, product
  reviews (any media), critical review & analysis, intelligent
  appreciation and examination of the Playboy lifestyle, and of course
  news about all your favorite Playmates. ;)

  To subscribe, send an email message to playboy-request@lovesexy.com
  with the word "subscribe" in the Subject: field of your message.

  NOTE : At Playboy's request, the Playboy Mailing List FTP site no
  longer contains copies of images from the Playboy Web Page.

  For more information, you could also check out the PML Web site, at
  : <http://www.lovesexy.com/pei/>

- About alt.mag.playboy

  alt.mag.playboy is a USENET newsgroup dedicated to the discussion of
  Playboy Magazine.  I'm not sure who created it, so I can't say too
  much about it.  It is an completely umoderated group, so the messages
  are often less sophisticated that those on the mailing list. Recently
  it has become a very popular place to find adds for Playboy back
  issues for sale, or wanted.

- About the Playboy Collectors Association.

  I only just recently discovered the Playboy Collectors Association.
  It was started in 1987 by Tom Bonner.  The main purpose of the PCA
  is to help promote the hobby and give information to collectors on
  buying and selling Playboy Memorabilia.  Anyone having questions
  on selling their early issues or Playboy Memorabilia can write PCA
  with a self-addressed envelope.  PCA will help try to find a buyer,
  either through other collectors or other dealers.  Playboy
  Memorabilia includes items from the catalogs, clubs or casinos and
  magazines from 1953 through 1955.  Information on joining the Playboy
  Collectors Association, receiving the PCA newsletter, and buying
  other guides can be obtained by also sending a self addressed
  envelope to :

  : Tom Bonner
  : PO Box 653
  : Phillipsburg, MO 65722-0653

- About Playboy Magazine and Playboy Enterprises, Inc.

  Playboy Magazine was founded by Hugh Hefner.  The first issue was
  published in November of 1953.  The issue had no date on it, as
  Mr. Hefner was unsure if there would ever be a second issue.  Luckily
  there was.  It is now a monthly publication from Playboy Enterprises,
  Inc.  It is self-billed as "Entertainment for Men" and features
  articles on a wide variety of issues; reviews of movies, books,
  music, cars, sports and new gadgets; interesting and in-depth
  interviews; and last, but not least, pictorials of beautiful women.
  Eventually, Playboy branched out and published books, videos, special
  pictorial issues, and more recently, designer apparel.

* About the Playboy World Wide Web Site

  The Playboy home page contains excerpts from the Dear Playboy, Movie
  Reviews, Book Reviews, Playboy Advisor and miscellaneous quotes from
  the various other articles and features. It also contains the full
  text of selected Playboy interviews, which change periodically.

  Starting with the December 1994 Playmate Elisa Bridges, each Playmate
  has a page dedicated to her.  These pages ususally contain a blurb
  about the Playmate, an inline, rated PG-13 JPEG, and a link for
  downloading an unpublished nude JPEG of the Playmate.  Some pages
  also include digitized signatures and sound clips.

  And finally, there are links to The Playboy Catalog and a page
  describing the various Playboy email addresses.

  The Playboy Home Page can be found at <http://www.playboy.com>.

Questions about Playboy
-----------------------
- Is Playboy obscene/pornography?

  Oh no you don't.  I'm not even gonna touch that one.  Obscenity and
  pornography are both subjective labels, and each person must make
  that decision for themselves.  If it could be determined objectively,
  you wouldn't be asking me.

- Are there databases of [playmates/articles/books/videos]?

  If you have the money to spend, Bob Chatham and Paul Hugli maintain
  the "Destiny Reference Guide."  Volume 1 covers Playboy magazine from
  December 1953 through June 1992, including Playmates, Pictorials,
  Articles and Interviews.  Volume 2 covers Centerfolds and models
  appearances in calendars, videos, specials, movies and television
  programs.  They are both printed on 8.5"x11" paper with plastic spiral
  binding.  They are also available in database form.  Both volumes are
  available from Ken Ritchie (see Apendix B) : Volume 1 is $25, Volume 2
  is $20.  The database is $250, and is only available directly from :    

  : Paul Hugli
  : 9440 Nichols
  : Bellflower, CA 90706

  If you are interested in an electronic version, but do not have the
  $250 for the Destiny Reference, you can try the mailing list FTP site.
  Several people on the mailing list are trying to create various
  databases, but they are all still very incomplete.  A list of
  available files is at 

  : <ftp://ftp.lovesexy.com/pub/pei/databases/01-index>

- I heard Playboy wasn't Hefner's first choice as a name.  What was?

  Hefner originally intended the magazine to be called "Stag Party" but
  switched to Playboy when Stag Magazine threatened legal action.

- When was the first issue of Playboy published?

  The first issue was published in December 1953, although the issue had
  no date.

- Why can't I find the March 1955 issue of Playboy?

  Because there isn't one.  Playboy was not able to meet the publishing
  deadline for the March issue, so they published the late March issue
  as the April issue and have continued to publish issues a month early
  every since then.

* How much is the (month year) issue of Playboy worth?

  That depends on the issue and the condition of the magazine.  A copy
  of the first issue can run as high as $8,000 (near mint condition) or
  as low as $500 (fair/poor condition).

  Appendix C of this FAQ contains a list of reputable dealers and their
  Price lists.  These lists can give you an idea of how much you would
  pay for a particular issue.  Of course, don't expect to be able to
  sell an issue for the listed price, especially issues from after the
  1960s.

  There are several book and guides available.  The most up to date is
  "Playboy Magazine Price Guide and Checklist" from the Playboy
  Collectors Association.  This simple guide is obviously not done by
  a professional publisher, but is nonetheless the most current and
  complete guide.  It contains thumb-nail photos of each centerfold
  (black and white photocopied) from December 1953 through December 
  1976 and each cover from December 1953 through December 1963.  It
  lists the price of each issues in Fine, Very Good and Good condition.
  It is $8.95 and is available from Ken Ritchie (see appendix C) or
  directly from PCA :

  : Playboy Collector Association
  : PO Box 653
  : Phillipsburg, MO 65722-0653

  "The Playboy Collectors Guide and Price List 6th edition"
  Published and distributed by Budget Enterprises
  P.O. Box 592, Snowdon Station, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H3X 3T7.
  This is a professionally done paperback book, 383 pages long.  It
  is a comprehensive guide specifically for Playboy collectors.  It
  also contains black and white thumb-nail photos of each cover, and
  lists the feature articles, pictorial and interviews for every issue
  from December 1953 through December 1983.  This would be invaluable
  if it were more up to date.  As a guide to collecting, though, it
  has no equal.

  The Collectors Guide and Price List is available from Ken Ritche (see
  Appendix C) for $9.

- What are those stars on the cover inside or next to the 'P' in the
  Playboy?

  Popular rumor was that the number of stars represented either the
  number of times Hugh Hefner had slept with the Playmate of the Month,
  or his rating of how good she was in bed.  Officially, however, the
  start represent the advertising region for that magazine.  If you
  find the same issue with a different number of stars, you will notice
  that some of the advertisements are different.  There were 13
  regions, including Chicago Metropolitan, New York Metropolitan,
  Southern California, Northern California, Central, Eastern, Western,
  Southeastern, Southwestern, Canada, International, United Kingdom
  and Military.  The last issue with the stars was September 1979

- Where can I get Playboy products?

  Contact Playboy at 1-800-423-9494 and request a current copy of their
  catalog.  They only sell Playboy Products inside the U.S., their
  territories and Canada, supposedly because of too many problems with
  customs, duty, etc.  For memorabilia (stuff advertised in older
  issues), try Ken Ritchie (see Appenix C).

- How can I change my subscription address?

  You may be able to do it over the phone, at the customer service
  number below, but I've never tried it.  The cover on each issues says
  to cut out your current mailing label and return it, along with your
  new address, to :

  : Playboy Enterprises, Inc.
  : PO Box 2007
  : Harlan, Iowa 51593-0222
  : 1-800-999-4438 (Customer Service, 9am-7pm Eastern)

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------


Questions about Hugh Hefner
---------------------------
- How old is Hugh Hefner?

  That depends on what today is.  He was born on April 9, 1926 so that
  would make him 69 as of this version of the FAQ.

- Is he really a genius?

  My dictionary defines a genius as "a person having extraordinaryily
  high intelligence, esp. one with an I.Q. of 140 or above."  So if the
  Playboy press releases stating he has an I.Q. of 152 are correct,
  then yes, he is a genius.

- Who are some of his romantic interests?

  In June 1949, before he started Playboy, he married a classmate from
  Northwestern University, Mildred Williams.  They were married for
  10 years.  The Playboy Book lists several women as 'interests,' 
  'important' or some such description, including Joyce Nizzari, Barbi
  Benton, Karen Christy, Donna Michelle and Sondra Theodore.
  Carrie Leigh sued him for palimony in 1988, after their four year
  relationship went sour (she eventually dropped the lawsuit).

  On July 1, 1989, he married Kimberly Conrad at the Playboy Mansion
  West.  She appeared in a special pictorila as the "Playmate for a
  Lifetime."

* Does he have any kids?

  Yes, he has several. His first marriage (to Mildred Williams)
  produced a daughter, Christie (born in 1952), and son, David (born
  in 1955).  His second marriage (to Kimberly Conrad) has (so far!)
  produced two sons, Marston (born in 1990) and Cooper (born in 1991).
  Around 1984, he accepted a young man named Mark as his son, based on
  the mother and the birthday of the boy.  However, later tests proved
  that Mark was not his son.

- Hasn't he been arrested a couple of times?

  He was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor for
  the January 1958 pictorial of Elizabeth Ann Roberts, who was not yet
  18 when she posed for Playboy.  The charges were later dropped.  He
  was arrested for obscenity for the June 1963 pictorial  "The Nudest
  Jayne Mansfield."  The trial ended with a hung jury.

- Does he really have an animal species named after him?

  Yes, there is a species of endangered marsh rabbits named
  Sylvilagus palustris hefneri.

+ Where does he live?

  The original Playboy Mansion, which has been converted into condos,
  was at 1340 N. State Street.  I'm looking for info on where he lives
  now, and other past homes.

  BY THE NUMBERS - through Stacy Sanches, March 1995
 
  Two things to keep in mind:
  1) Not all Playmates before the data sheets started with Sondra
  Theodore in July, 1977 had their measurements published.  The figures
  represent those who did, and are limited to U.S. Playmates.
  2) Read the beginning of the human measurements section in the
  Guiness Book of World Records about the accuracy of human dimensional
  claims when there is a buck to be made.
 
  WEIGHT
  Lightest Playmate: 94 pounds - Shannon Long, October 1988
  Heaviest Playmate: 140 pounds - Anna Nicole Smith, May 1992
  Most common weight: 110 pounds
  Average weight: 113 pounds
 
  HEIGHT
  Shortest Playmate: 59 inches (4'11")

  Tallest Playmate: 73 inches (6'1") - Susan Miller, September 1972
  Most common height: 67 inches (5'7")
  Avereage height: 66.2 inches (5'6.2")
 
  BUST

  : Anne-Marie Fox, February 1982
  : Anna Clark, April 1987 (32 D)
  : Sharry Konopski, August 1987 (32 DD)
  : Jennifer LaVoie, August, 1993 (32 D)

  Largest bust measurement: 41" - Rosemarie Hillcrest, October 1964
  Most common bust measurement: 36"
  Average bust measurement: 35.6"
 
  CUP SIZE
  While many before and every Playmate since July 1977 has had her
  measurements published, publishing the cup size has been much more
  random (only 36 times), and the data are less representative. For
  example, although there have been Playmates who appear to be less
  than a B cup, no cup size less than a B has been listed.
  Smallest cup: B (see above)
  Largest cup: DD
  Most common cup: C
 
  WAIST
  Smallest waist: 18 inches - Michelle Winters, September 1962
  Largest waist: 27 inches - Saskia Linssen, June 1991
  Most common waist measurement: 24 inches
  Average waist measurement: 23.2 inches
 
  HIPS
  Smallest hips: 32 inches -(17 Playmates)
  Largest Hips: 39 inches - Unne Terjesen, July 1962
  Most common hip measurement: 34 inches
  Average hip measurement: 34.7 inches

- How much do the Playmates get paid to pose?

  Playmates get $20,000, the Playmate of the Year gets $100,000.
  Don't quote me on the rest, but someone told me that for non Playmate
  pictorials, girls selected to pose clothed get $100; semi-clothed
  brings $250; and nude is $500.

- Who was the first Playmate of the Month?

  The first centerfold was Marilyn Monroe, but she was called the
  "Sweetheart of the Month."  The first centerfold to actually be called
  the Playmate of the Month was Margie Harrison, in the January 1954
  issue.

- How has the centerfold evolved over the years?

  The first two centerfolds were only single page photographs.  The
  third issue, February 1954, was the first two-page centerfold.  The
  famous three page fold out centerfold made it's first appearance in
  in the March 1956 issue (with Marian Stafford).  In October 1985, the
  physical format of the magazine changed; instead of being held
  together by staples, the magazine was produced with the 'perfect' or
  flat binding.  So now the centerfold is attached to the magazine at
  top of the centerfold, instead of stapled in the first fold.  Thus
  if the magazine was closed with the centerfold unfolded, two pages
  would stick out, instead of one.

- Who was the first Playmate of the Year?

  The first official Playmate of the Year was Ellen Stratton, the 1960
  Playmate of the Year and the December 1959 Playmate of the Month.

- Who was the first African-American Playmate of the Month?
  
  The first African-American selected as a Playmate of the Month was
  Jennifer Jackson.  She appeared in the March 1965 issue.

- Who was the first Asian-American Playmate of the Month?
  
  Not sure on this one; may have been China Lee in 1964.

- Who was the first Foreign Playmate of the Month?

? Not sure on this one, either.  The best I can guess at the moment is
  Elsa Sorensen (September 1956).  I just remembered that they titled
  her pictorial "Danish Pastry" -- and she was from Denmark.

- Who was the first Playmate to show pubic hair?

  The very first appearance of pubic hair was in the August 1969 issue,
  by Paula Kelly.  However, the first Playmate to show pubic hair was
  Liv Lindeland. She appeared in the January 1971 issue. She was also
  the Playmate of the Year.

- Who was the first double sided Playmate of the Month?

  The first (and only) double sided Playmate of the Month was Nancy
  Cameron.  She appeared in the January 1974 issue.

- Who was the last Playmate of the Month in a stapled issue?

  The last Playmate of the Month to appear in a stapled issue was Venice
  Kong.  She appeared in the September 1985 issue.

- Who was the first Playmate of the Month in a glued issue?

  The first Playmate of the Month to appear in a glued issue was Cynthia
  Brimhall.  She appeared in the October 1985 issue.

- Who was the first Playmate with a Data Sheet?

  The first first Playmate to appear with a Data Sheet was Sondra
  Theodore.  She appeared in the July 1977 issue.
  
- Who was the first Playmate to sign her centerfold?

  The first Playmate to sign her center fold was Jill De Vries.  She
  appeared in the October 1975 issue.

- Who was the youngest Playmate of the Month?

  The legal age limit is, of course 18.  However, supposedly Elizabeth 
  Ann Roberts, who appeared in the January 1958 issue, was only 16 at
  the time.  Her mother accompanied her to her photo session, and
  claimed that she was 18.  She was also attending college at the time.
  Both Playboy and Miss Roberts' mother were charged with something like
  contributing to the delinquency of a minor, but charges were later
  dropped.  The German edition has had at least two Playmates who were
  under the age of 18. One was Ursula Buchfellner who appeared in
  Germany's December 1977 issue.  She was 16 at the time.  She later
  appeared in American October 1979 issue. Joyce Nizzari and Penny
  Baker, who appeared in the December 1958 and January 1984 issues,
  were both 18 years old when they posed.

  Also, a member of the list claims knowledge of another underage
  appearance, but will not disclose his source or the Playmate.

* Who was the oldest Playmate of the Month?

  The oldest Playmate of the Month was Cindy Brooks, who appeared in
  the April 1985 issue, was 33 years and 5 months old at the time.
  Others 30+ playmates include :
  : Julianna Young (November 1993) 33 years, 2 months
  : Kathleen Ann Shower (May 1985) 32 years, 2 months
  : Susie Diane Owens (March 1988) 31 years, 10 months
  : Bettie Page (January 1955) 31 years, 9 months
  : Arlene Baxter (December 1993) 31 years, 1 month
  : Janis Schmitt (February 1978) 30 years, 11 months
  : Eloise Broady (April 1988) 30 years, 11 months

* Who was the last anonymous Playmate?

  The first centerfolds for Playboy were not actually taken by Playboy
  photographers.  Playboy purchased nude photographs from calendar
  pinup photographers (notably Baumgarten Calendar Company, which 
  supplied the famous Marilyn Monroe picture).  The first Playmate to
  pose for Playboy directly was Eve Meyer, for the June 1955 issue.
  The last anonymous Playmate was Lynn Turner, in the January 1956
  issue.

- Who are the Anniversary Playmates?

  5th, December 1958, Joyce Nizzari
  10th, December 63, Donna Michelle
  15th, January 69, Leslie Bianchini
  20th, January 74, Nancy Cameron (the famous double sided centerfold)
  25th, January 1979, Candy Loving
  30th, January 1984, Penny Baker
  35th, January 1989, Fawna Maclaren
  40th, January 1994, Anna-Marie Goddard

- Who has the most apperances on the cover of Playboy?

  Well, besides the rabbit that appears on every cover, I'm not sure.
  Femlin has appeared on 8 covers and Cynthia Maddox (who was Playboy's
  Assistant Cartoon Editor) and Lillian Muller have been on 5 each.

- How many Playmates have been Playmate of the Month multiple times?

  The first Playmate to appear as the Playmate of the Month three times
  was Janet Pilgrim.  She appeared in the July 1955, December 1955 and
  October 1956 issues.  Interestingly, she was discovered from within
  Playboy.  She was Playboy's Subscription Manager.

  The first Playmate to appear as the Playmate of the Month twice was
  Margie Harrison.  She appeared in the January 1954 and June 1954
  issues. Others include Marilyn Waltz in the April 1954 and April 1955
  issues, and Margurite Empey in the May 1955 and February 1956 issues.

- How many times have there been two Playmates of the Month?

  The first issue to feature two Playmates as Playmates of the Month
  was the October 1958 issue.  The pictorial was titled "Le Rouge et
  le Blanc" and featured Pat Sheehan (a blonde) and Mara Corday 
  (a redhead).  The idea was that while some men would prefer one
  playmate over the other, the true playboy was a connoisseur and
  would appreciate the differing qualities of both equally.  Pat
  Sheehan appeared on the usual three page foldout.  Mara Corday was on
  the reverse of the lower two pages of Pat Sheehan's picture, so her
  "centerfold" was only two pages.  Both said "Miss October / Playboy's
  Playmate of the Month" as per usual.  The October 1970 and September
  1989 issues also had two Playmates.  (see the next question)

- How many times have there been twins as Playmates of the Month?

  The first issue to feature twins as Playmates of the Month was the
  October 1970 issue.  It features Mary and Madeleine Collinson. Others
  include :
  : Karin and Mirjam van Breeschooten, September 1989
  : Sofie and Katrien Vergote, July 1991, Dutch edition

* How many times have sisters or twins independently been Playmates of
  the Month?

  Janice Pennington, May 1971; Ann Penington March 1976
  Other sisters have appeared, not as Playmates, but in the Newstand
  Special "Playboy's Sisters," published in February 1992.  Also,
  Elaine Morton (May 1971) and Karen Morton (July 1978) were cousins.
  The Brazilian edition features Andreia Ramme (August 1993), Josie
  Ramme (August 1994), and Tatiana Ramme (October 1994).

- How many Playmates have had daughters who were also Playmates?

  This has only happened once, to the best of my knowledge.  Carol Eden
  was the December 1960 Playmate of the Month; her daughter Simone Eden
  followed in her footsteps as the February 1989 Playmate of the Month.
  However, Jane Mansfield (Miss February 1955), had a daughter Jayne
  Marie Mansfield who posed for a regular pictorial an Tamara Davis
  appeared with here daughters Dawn and Shannon in an August 1993
  pictorial entitled "Like Mother, Like Daughters."

- How many Playmates have appeared in movies or on television?

  Several.  The file pm.files.v0.9 at the FTP site contains a list of
  Playmates and their film/television appearances.

- How many Playmates have had the same name?

  This has happened twice.  A Susie Scott appears in the February 1960
  and May 1983 issues;  A Jennifer Jackson appears in the March 1965
  and April 1989 issues.

  This list is broken down into two sections.  Pictures where the model
  actually posed for Playboy, and pictures Playboy has obtained through
  other sources.  A '*' after an issue indicates that the model
  appeared in a feature layout or article.  Most of the rest are single
  pictures from such features as "Sex Stars" or "The Year in Sex." 
  (just added this notation, so I haven't gone back to check each issue
  to see if it is a full pictorial or not; help me out if you can! )

- Where can I get back issues of Playboy?

  That depends on what condition you want the issue in.  If it is a
  fairly recent issue, or a post-1960 issue and you aren't concerned
  about scuffs and folded pages/covers, check Appendix B for a dealer
  in your local area.  If there isn't one, check out the reputable Mail
  Order dealers in Appendix C.  Generally they have each issue in a
  wide range of conditions.  It might cost a little more than what you
  might pay in a local store, but will probably be in better condition.
  You can also watch the local classifieds under collectables for
  someone selling their collection at a bargain price.  Most of the
  time they won't sell individual issues, but it can't hurt to ask.

  If you are looking for older issues, or want higher quality older
  issues, you'll have to do a little more work.  First, check any local
  dealers.  It's unlikely, but not impossible, that they'll have good
  quality magazines, but you may get a bargin!  Again, watch the
  classified section of your local news paper, under collectables.  On
  occasion someone will sell an entire collection, often at a good
  price.  Make sure you see the collection before you buy, and check
  the condition of every issue, if you have time.

  If you want top quality condition issues, check the list of reputable
  dealers in Appendix C.  You will definately pay more, but, as they
  say, you get what you pay for.  You could even place your own ad in
  the wanted section, asking for an entire collection in good
  condition.  And again, watch the classified section of your local
  news paper, under collectables.  Make sure you see the collection
  before you buy it, and check the condition of every issue.

  There are also several newsgroups on the internet that regularly have
  postings about Playboy magazines for sale.  However, it is kind of
  risky since you don't know the person, and they usually want payment
  in advance.  This is ok if you want a fairly cheap issues, but I
  wouldn't recommend buying a December 1953 issues without making
  arrangements to see it first.  Having said that, some of the news-

  groups you could check include :

  : alt.sex.erotica.marketplace
  : alt.sex.movies
  : alt.sex.magazines

Storage Issues
--------------
- How should I store my back-issues of Playboy?

  It really depends on how serious you are and how much money you
  have to spend.  If you are very very serious, and want permanent,
  archival storage, you should use mylar/acid-free bags and boxes, with
  acid free backing boards (to prevent corners and edges from wrinkling
  and bending).  This can be expensive, but will offer the best
  protection for the magazine.

  Even if you are very very serious, bear in mind that the circulation
  of Playboy increased dramatically in the early 60s.  It may be a bit
  of overkill to store these more easily obtainable issues with mylar/
  acid-free bags and boxes.  One of the better suggestions I've heard
  was to go all out for the first 100 issues, then use the less
  expensive Polyethylene bags for issues after that.

  If you are moderately serious, comic shops and collectors shops often
  have Polyethylene or plastic bags that will fit Playboy for about 7-8
  dollars per 100.

  Some places may have bags that seal (ala ziploc baggies) to make them
  airtight.  It is generally thought this is bad, because temperature
  and air pressure variations could cause water vapor to come out of
  the air trapped in the bag, damaging the magazine.

  Also, it has been reported that sandwhich bags commonly available in
  grocery stores will cause the magazine to fade due to both the bags
  and the paper Playboy is printed on are clay based.

* I can't find bags/backing boards locally.  Where can I get them?

  : Mylar/Acid free bags ($$$)     Polyethylene bags
  : ---------------------------    -------------------------
  : Bill Cole Enterprises          Bags Unlimited *
  : P.O. Box 60                    7 Canal Street
  : Randolph, MA 02368-0060        Rochester, New York 14608
  : (617) 986-2653                 (800) 767-BAGS

  * Bags Unlimited has free samples (first time only), I recommend
  products SMAG3 or SMAGL3.

- I've found a source for bags/backing boards.  What size do I need?

  The size bag you need depends on the size of each magazine, and
  whether or not you also plan on using acid free backing boards. For
  recent issues, 8 1/2" x 11" should be ok.  I recomend a flap of at
  least 1 1/2".  For older issues, especially Christmas issues from the
  Eighties, or if you want to use acid free backing boards, 9" x 11"
  is pretty much a minimum.  If you can find them, bags that are
  slightly longer than 11" (11 1/8" or more) are great.  If you put
  the magazine and board in the bag and it bends or warps, you need a
  wider bag.
