Original 1960's "Playboy Club" Beer Stein *SOLD*

(Sorry, out of stock...SOLD for $65.00) Original 1960's "Playboy Club" Beer Stein. Former cartoonist Hugh Hefner's publishing gamble in the 1950's to produce an intelligent "mens' magazine" paid off big-time...perhaps you have heard of Playboy magazine. Marilyn Monroe appeared in a jobbed-out pictorial in the first issue and the rest was history. After it hit the newsstands to much public clamor and media attention, Marilyn's famous reply to a reporter's question of "Miss Monroe, what did you have on during the photo shoot?" was "..well...I believe I had the radio on"! By 1960 the Playboy empire had grown to the point that Hefner opened his first Playboy Club in Chicago, Illinois. It was a tremendous success at the time, dripping in Rat-Pack lounge leather and bedecked with young lovelies serving drinks wearing...gulp...bunny suits! Talk about a fantasy run wild. Anyway, many Playboy Clubs opened across the nation in the ensuing years, and then many international clubs were added as well. As years went on, though, the Clubs ran into difficulty...the cool "martini lounge" mystique became a tough thing to sell in the rapidly-changing times of the 70's and 80's. One by one, they faded from view...the last original American location, Lansing, Michigan, closed in 1988. There's a recently-opened Playboy Club in Las Vegas now, by the way...maybe the makings of a comeback. Anyway, Mr. Pop Top digresses. This is a VF-MINT condition glass beer stein from the 1960's, in frosted black with the Playboy Club logo featuring Leroy Neiman's famous Playboy Bunny drawing. "The Playboy Club" is emblazoned on the bottom of the glass ( nobody could see you peeking!!). Maybe this glass was touched by a young Gloria Steinem as she served a beer to a lonely insurance salesman from Dubuque? That's right...Ms. Steinem did don the bunny suit to work for a while in the 60's at a Playboy Club! And, oh comes Bill Cosby and Dizzy Gillespie! Hey, Mort Sahl, over here! Is that Carol Wayne? Johnny Carson?? Dino!!! Oh my God, Peter Sellers just walked in. Peter O'Toole...hey, loved you in "Lawrence". Woody Allen!! Hey...wait a minute...THEY'RE ALL WEARING ROBES!! Where's Hef's hot-tub??! Everybody jump in!!! Wooo-hoooo!! Anyway, Pop Toppers, they're aren't too many of these steins left in this immaculate condition, some 40+ years later. This relic of the swingin' 60's measures close to 6" tall and would look great on the shelf in your Bachelor Pad, right next to the heart-shaped tub, lava light and red-velvet bed. Don't forget the Binaca! Out of stock.
