The Beginning
(1984 - 1985)

The Gipper Issue

The inaugural issue in 1984 was dedicated to the Gipper, aka Ronald Reagan, and his landslide re-election. Appropriately, it featured the first-ever Gipper centerfold!! The editors posed this question on the cover: "Can anyone stop this man's face from shaking?" As we now know, that just wasn't possible.
