Hugh Hefner's Trademark Playboy Pipe
Hugh Hefner; is known as the Pop culture icon and publishing giant who introduced the world to the legendary Playboy brand. This trademark item is from the personal collection of Hugh M. Hefner; this is Hugh’s carved briar pipe with the custom Playboy Rabbit Head Symbol marked "Playboy, Imported Briar, France." In 1953, he took out a mortgage loan of $600 and raised $8,000 from 45 investors (including $1,000 from his mother—"not because she believed in the venture," he told E! in 2006, "but because she believed in her son") to launch Playboy, which was initially going to be called Stag Party.
