About the Author:
Collector Rich Oberg saw his first men' s adventure magazine on a Piggly Wiggly grocery store magazine rack in 1968 and decided that maybe shopping with mom wasn't so bad after all. He began collecting the magazines and the original art that graced their covers in 1982 and now maintains the largest known collection in the United States.
