Not Safe for Work: Collectables from the Playboy archives
Along with the Playboy Mansion, Hugh Hefner has brought legend status to his private DC-9, better known as Big Bunny or Hare Force One, with tales from its travels igniting the imaginations of all American teenagers in the 1960s and 1970s — exploits of which have been divulged further in one of our previous articles. In its upcoming auction, modern and contemporary auction house Wright will offer a compilation of memorabilia related to the Playboy aircraft, including miniature models of the seats, a stewardess outfit, 62 on-board black-and-white photos, Polaroid photos, drawings, and blueprints. Along with this memorabilia, listed with a pre-sale estimate of 2,000–3,000 US dollars, two additional Playboy lots will be offered (Lot 277 and 278), featuring such finds as records, graphics, tickets, catalogues, and even a real Playboy Dollar. The best thing: you do not have to hide these small frivolities in a box under the bed!
