Sammy Davis Jr Signed Twice Gene Krupa Fred Astaire Van Johnson Hank Thompson Al "Uncle Jazzbo" Collins Autograph 1953 Downbeat Magazine
August 12 1953 issue of "Downbeat" magazine. Signed on the front cover by Sammy Davis Jr and Van Johnson. Signed on inner pages a second time by Sammy Davis, as well as Gene Krupa, Fred Astaire, Hank Thompson and Uncle Jazzbo (AL Collins), a longtime DJ on both coasts. The magazine shows many signs of wear, but is complete. This is from the estate of Dan (Oberholtz) Diamond, a prominent Kansas City area DJ for decades. Besides his many years as a DJ and interviewing most of the top musical acts of his time, Dan was also known for his vast personal record collection. As I can only display two photos here, I will gladly send photos of other signed pages on request.
