Playboy Lowers Price to 60 Cents for October Issue

In honor of NBC’s new series The Playboy Club, Playboy is publishing a 1961-themed issue that will retail for just 60 cents — the same price the magazine sold for in 1961.

Laura Benanti from The Playboy Club is on the cover and is interviewed for the October issue, which hits newsstands Friday.

According to the release, “The special issue will also take readers back in time with retro features, including a 10-page pictorial with original Playboy Bunnies from the 1960s and a “Welcome to the Club” special advertising section sponsored by Seagram’s 7 Crown.”

Fellas, is 60 cents low enough a price that you will buy the October issue? You know … for the articles, of course.
