When the world lost Hugh Hefner last year, it lost a true original, a man who advocated for something he believed in despite serious headwinds. Buying a stack of Playboys to remember Hef may be frowned upon by your family, so consider hitting this live and online auction for a memento if you were one of the millions of boys who thought getting their hands on a Playboy was akin to finding a pot of gold. The Hugh M. Hefner Collection includes various items the magazine’s creator owned and kept around the Playboy mansion. A jukebox from his game house. A custom Monopoly board. A first edition of The Great Gatsby. There are tons of items plucked from the structures around the grotto. And, yes, there’s a bespoke smoking jacket and pipe, as few things are more quintessentially Hef. The auction takes place at the end of Novemeber, and you can get details on Julien’s site.


We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
