The stock proved too popular for the company's good: so many people purchased one share and took delivery of the certificate that Playboy was spending a fortune sending out annual reports and dividend checks. They issued a more modest new certificate and did a reverse split to call all stocks back in (for two old Playboy shares you were given one new Playboy share; otherwise you got cashed out) . If you didn't send the stock, you lost your shares. The old piece of paper is still worth a lot more than the current live stock.

In 2011, during the 23rd Auktion für Historische Wertpapiere by Matthias Schmitt ([email protected]) 100 different stocks with beautiful women were auctioned from the collection of Marc-Edouard Emay, who composed a 45 p. booklet (A4-size format) : "Geil....heit auf Aktien" with enlarged engravings and photo's of women depicted on the stocks. ISBN-10: 3-00-019135-4 or ISBN-13: 978-3-00-019315-6. This booklet costs ca. € 12 and may be ordered through Matthias Schmitt.
