Playboy Enterprises: Set of 2 Stock Certificates (1970's - 1990's)


Playboy Enterprises, Inc. is an American privately held global media and lifestyle company headquartered in Beverly Hills, California. It was founded by the late Hugh Hefner in1953 to initially manage the Playboy magazine empire. The business quickly expanded and began to develop and distribute a wider range of adult entertainment. It went public in 1971. Christie Hefner, daughter of Hugh Hefner, was the President from 1982 and Chairman of the Board and CEO from 1988, until she left the company in 2009. In late 2015, it was announced that the print edition of the magazine would drop all centerfolds. The first magazine without centerfolds was the March, 2016 edition. Today, Playboy Enterprises, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the development and distribution of content, products, and high-profile events that embody both “eroticism and fine art.” The Playboy rabbit logo is one of the most widely recognized and popular brands in the world. Offered here are 2 vintage stock certificates issued during 2 different periods in Playboy history. The first is an early and scarce unissued specimen from the 1970’s featuring a vignette of Willy Rey, Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for February, 1971— easily one of the most provocative vignettes to appear on the stock certificate of a publicly traded company. This certificate has the printed (not autographed) signature of Hugh Hefner and Playboy’s Vice President. The second certificate was issued during the 1980’s and 1990’s and features a more modest, yet artful, vignette of a woman holding a globe against a cityscape background. This certificate has the printed (not autographed) signature of both Hugh Hefner and his daughter Christie Hefner and has been neatly canceled. Consider this collection if you are looking for a great conversation piece or impressive wall art for your office or man cave.
