DELAWARE. NEW YORK. Common Shares of $.01, specimen. Serie B. blue, black. The Playboy empire was born in 1953, when Hugh Hefner was refused a pay rise of $5. He used his savings to buy the rights to the famous Marilyn Monroe calendar, and put together the first issue of Playboy on the kitchen table of his Chicago apartment. Uncertain whether there would be a second issue, he did not put a date on the first. However, the first printing sold out in days. Later, the company was formed and has been around ever since.
