vintage PLAYBOY collectibles...

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):

own web site and magazine pages again and again... Read more about KRC by clicking on these
