Hugh Hefner's silk pajamas, more iconic Playboy items up for auction

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hundreds of iconic items belonging to Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner will be auctioned off Friday and Saturday.

Famous personal items synonymous with Hefner -- smoking jacket, silk pajamas, pipe -- can be yours for the right price.

Julien's Auctions is showcasing memorabilia from Hefner's life at the Playboy Mansion before they auction it off.

"This is a lifestyle auction with ephemeral and historic items," Martin Nolan, executive director at Julien's Auctions said. "He, of course was a great publisher, so there's lots of books, first edition books. Musical instruments, his Wurlitzer. We have an orchestration going back to 1917."

Some other highlights include a vintage 1946 coin operated jukebox, a vintage portable typewriter and his famous white captain's hat.

The exhibition is free to the public every day this week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The live and online auction will be held Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The items sold will benefit the Hugh M. Hefner Foundation.
