Nervous about ordering from an on-line catalog?

Ken Ritchie is a private collector and an established mail-order adult-collectibles
dealer for over 25 years and is a well-known and respected authority on all
vintage PLAYBOY collectibles...

... Even PLAYBOY thinks so! Here's what PLAYBOY has to say about KRC:

PLAYBOY MAGAZINE, October 1998 ("The Playboy Advisor"):
"...The magazine's first fifteen issues, dating from 1953 to February 1955, are the hardest to find in excellent condition and have the most value. If you're missing any of these issues or have extras to sell, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to independent dealers such as...Ken Ritchie [P.O. Box 22604] Memphis Tennessee, 38122".

PLAYBOY.COM, June-July 1999 (web advertisement for the PLAYBOY EXPO):
"...We've brought in the world's largest Playboy collector, Ken Ritchie, to dazzle you with his Playboy mementos and relics from the past 45 years... Check out a preview of what Ken brings on his Web site".

PLAYBOY.COM (Playboy Collectibles web site - KRC quotes and references):
There is no better reference for KRC than to be recommended and advertised on PLAYBOY's own web site and magazine pages again and again... Read more about KRC by clicking on these links at selling back issues, collectibles appraisal, early-issue appraisal.
