Susan Smith - Vintage Playmate Autograph - Swimsuit

Vintage Playmate Autograph - Susan Smith

Over the last year, I have been selling my collection of Playboy Playmate autographs that I have collected over the years. To my mind, I am now getting down to some of the rarer, or at least more interesting Playmates whose autographs are definitely are not easy to find anymore. This next series of Playboy Playmate autographs are older, and are 4 x 5" photos rather than 8 x 10's that are more common today. I think that these are far more rare and hard to find than the standard 8 x 10's. Also, they were often given away at personal appearances so the inscriptions are more interesting. That makes these a great gift for the real Playboy fan ... but they are not going to be cheap.

Next in this series is a 4 x 5" Black and White Playmate of the Month promo photo of Susan Smith , who was Playmate of the Month for September 1981 . For the sake of my auctions, I am calling a "Vintage Playmate" one that appeared over 15 years ago. Susan's centerfold appeared 27 years this past summer... hard to believe!

Susan was a classic Playmate, listed as standing 5' 8" tall , weighing 120 pounds , and her measurements were an sleek, svelte, and natural, 36-24-36 . When she posed, she had long blond hair that framed her beautiful face!

Susan Smith was born in Beloit, Wisconsin on January 14, 1959... so she will turn 50 early next year. Susan first appeared in Playboy in the February 1979 pictorial "The Girls of Las Vegas." She was then chosen to be Playmate for September 1981 with a centerfold photographed by Ken Marcus and Robert Scott Hooper . Susan is also known for another appearance w she "wrestled" Andy Kaufman for the "inter-gender championship of the world" in the February 1982 Playboy.

After her appearance in Playboy, Susan did some promotions for Playboy and had small roles in two movies ( Don't Go in the House , and Working Girls ). After that, I can find very little about her.

This was a promo for Susan's Playmate of the Month appearance in 1981 . The picture shows Susan from mid-thigh up. She is turned to her right wearing a very sheer, and low-cut one-piece bathing suit with both hands on her hips and she has a sweet smile on her face... her light brown hair frames her gorgeous face. What a body! It is signed in black ink across the lower-right hand side of the photo and says , " Love & Stuff, Susan Smith ".
People who collect Playmate promos know that t are a number of variations on these which changed with the year... all authentic. I purchased this one from another collector a number of years ago. It is printed on a glossy photo paper, and has been stored flat in mylar.
I also realize that t are a lot of fake autographs out t I am confident (and positive) that the autographs I sell are all authentic, but... if you have any doubts let me know and please don't bid.
