6. Farrah Fawcett, December 1995 – 4,000,000 copies sold
Someone’s dad is reading this article and thinking, “I had the Farrah Fawcett poster back in the day. You know, before electricity. I loved it.” Unfortunately, this isn’t the 70s-era Fawcett that made eyes pop out. This was the 48-year-old Fawcett that definitely exposed everyone’s deep-seated issues with their mom.
At 4 million copies sold, this was proof that Playboy still ruled the days before the Internet was ubiquitous. Fawcett still clearly struck a chord with people everywhere. Sadly, this was only 14 years before Fawcett’s untimely death. Most people are not even aware that Fawcett passed away because of another news event overshadowed it. What is that? Michael Jackson’s death.
