Playboy Legacy Collection Marilyn Monroe Prints

The three Marilyn Monroe prints that appeared in Playboy Men's Magazine all were of great significance and beauty.  The first, captured by Tom Kelley in a Hollywood studio on a red velvet curtain in 1949, became the first centerfold of the magazine known as "Sweetheart of the Month" published December 1953.  The second two were taken by renowned pinup photographer Earl Moran in 1946 and discovered years later by Hugh Hefner and published in a tribute to Monroe in 1987.  The three images were the only nude images of Monroe ever published and are coveted by collectors and galleries worldwide.
