PRICE LIST INTRODUCTION

In April 1959, a new form of advertising appeared in PLAYBOY Magazine consisting of a 2-page ad separated by a membership order card that was perforated at the spine for easy removal. The ads were usually for book or record clubs. The cards were typically 3 x 5, although several sizes are known. In many cases, these cards were counted as pages, and magazines without them are incomplete - for example: in issue 4/59, pages 72 and 75 are the ad itself, and page 73-74 is the order card. These are not the subscription cards that PLAYBOY has nearly always included in each issue and which do not count as pages.

The next issue with such an ad was 8/60, but nearly all issues from 1961 through 1966 had at least one. A similar advertising gimmick was the 12-page tear-out 'BAR GUIDE'. The most notorious of these are issues 12/59 and 11/61, which are rarely found with an intact BAR GUIDE.

All prices shown are for complete magazines with all page-numbered cards and/or BAR GUIDE intact.
