Sam Cooke Autograph Signed "Hits Of The '50s" Japanese LP Album Clear Red Vinyl Record
The album "Hits Of The '50s" signed (adding "Thanks") on the front cover by Sam Cooke in black marker. This is apparently a Japanese release of the album. The cover is a thin paper with a plastic shrink wrap. The record is made from a transparent red vinyl. The paper sleeve shows many signs of wear, some corners ripped and/or cut off. The clear red vinyl record shows very little visible scratching. Apparently a rare release (if even a legitimate one), as I have yet to find any reference to it. The signature is the largest Sam Cooke autograph I have been aware of. 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.
