Footnote
The first issue of PLAYBOY had neither Centerfold nor Playmate.
For December 1953, Marilyn's iconic nude was published as a full-page, one-page photo near—not at—the center of the magazine.
And Mrs Hefner had not yet suggested the title of "Playmate", so Marilyn was presented as the fledgling magazine's "Sweetheart of the Month".
(But the entirely reasonable convention is to count her as the 1st Playmate.)
