Playboy was started by Hefner when he published it from his home kitchen in 1953.  It is reported that Hefner founded the magazine with $600 and another $1,000 borrowed from his mother.  The first centerfold, an iconic feature of the monthly magazine, was of Marilyn Monroe.

Playboy became the largest-selling men’s magazine in the world, selling seven million copies a month, when it was at its peak.
