Availability: 1 in stock


For sale is a fantastic vintage January 1952 back issue for a men’s magazine called “SIR!, A MAGAZINE FOR MEN”. This magazine was a pinup magazine with pulp or yellow journalism articles that “pushed the envelope” for the era. This magazine originally sold for 25 cents. The cover features beauty Laura Lane. Inside is also a pictorial of Edith Georges, a risqué performer in Paris musical revues. The magazine features historical vintage adds such as a belly massager to reduce fat. The articles are testosterone filled, over-the-top tales of masculinity. The bizarre articles include: “Firebugs are Sex Perverts”, “The Most Lust-Ridden Woman of All Time”, “Parisian Sex Life”, and “The Shame of Capital Punishment”.  The 82-page magazine is in excellent condition with minor wear and no tears. The magazine is complete with all 82 pages. The spine is intact. This magazine was the National Inquirer or Sun tabloid of its days. Would display nicely in a frame. A great 1950s ephemera collectible.
