The auction was full of a lot of great stuff that belonged to Hefner, but there was one that seemed to clearly stand out.

Hefner’s widow, Crystal Hefner and Julien’s Auction organizers discovered a little blue pill while conducting an examination of his private possessions that were set to be auctioned.
