Man Will Trade 25 Years Of Playboys For Rockie Tickets

Make it Splosh! magazine…and you got a deal!

Some Rockies fans say they’ll do almost anything to get tickets for the World Series games at Coors Field and one fan wants to trade some prized possessions he’s had in his basement for years.

Little league baseball coach Bobby Padilla just wants to take his son to a World Series game, so he’s carted up from his basement boxes full of 25 years worth of Playboy magazines, not a missing month, in mint condition. He bought the magazines nine years ago for $200 as a favor to a friend.

“My wife told me get to them out of the house,” Bobby laughed. “They’re taking up too much room in the basement.”

“Every time my girls go in there, they’re like, ‘Mommy, what’s in these boxes?’” Bobby’s wife Nicole said.

The parents are going to be lined up next year so their children can play for Coach Bobby Padilla, who enjoys looking at tits.

Indeed, what are in those boxes? Not your dick, Coach Bobby, not your dick.

Have you ever laughed any words? Because this has still never happened to me.

Old playboys are great to jack off to. Try it sometime.

After last night's game he may be able to get Rockies tickets for 6 Carter-era Hustlers and a couple of early 90s Barely Legals.

"The parents are going to be lined up next year so their children can play for Coach Bobby Padilla, who enjoys looking at tits."

They should just be thankful that he isn't into little boys. Looking at tits is a sane and sensible hobby for a middle-aged man.

No beating around the bush there!

Sounds like a sticky proposition to me.

Teen Beat indeed.

Also as a favor he bought nine pounds of Afghan hash.

What a wacky guy.

Also as a favor to the guy who got $200 for them. When I had a book shop I had god knows how many people calling and begging me to take 20 or 30 years worth of Playboys for free. Unless they're from the first few years, they have almost zero resale value. They're like National Geographics or Reader's Digests.

Where were these people when I was 14?

Another man's spank material is not high on my list of collectibles.

Didn't Jimmy Caan actually collect *Playmates*? Like two consecutive years worth? Fcuk 56 games, etc...
   17. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2007 at 05:11 PM (#2593212)
What can I get for 10 or so years of GAMES magazine and 3 or 4 OUI's and GALLERY's? The 80's were quite a decade in that small town.

The kid may actually prefer the Playboys.

I'll grant you the NGs, but there's rarely anything even remotely sexy in the Reader's Digest.

As long as they're over 18, that's fine. (The tits, I mean)

I only meant in terms of resale value. But then you probably pretend that you only read Reader's Digest for the interviews.

Somebody really needs to rise to the occasion for this offer.

And that's before every photo in them got bootlegged on the Web.

National Geographic or Playboy?

Both magazines with pictures of beautiful places you'll never get to visit.
