Elmer Batters was a pioneer in the old time vintage girlie pin-up nylon magazines, and this vintage issue of TIP TOP, from 1961 was a classic example of the old fashioned art of the nylon pin-up model. TIP TOP Magazine from American Art Enterprises eventually became part of the Reuben Sturman adult empire known as Parliament Magazines. Sturman himself was able to duck some 1960’s obscenity legal problems for many years through clever legal moves, but this also opened him up to eventually being charged and convicted of tax evasion charges and finally a count of interstate transportation of obscenity charge also stuck. But, by today’s standards, these old time nylon model photos are very tame. Enjoy a little journey back to 1961 and some vintage centerfold models of yesteryear….
