Signed Playboy Magazine Chet Atkins Jonathan Winters Ray Charles Playmate Sheralee Conners Autograph July 1961 ITEM SOLD
The July 1961 issue of Playboy Magazine, signed on various pages by Chet Atkins, Jonathan Winters, Ray Charles and Playmate Of The Month Sheralee Conners. Chet Atkins and Jonathan Winters signed on advertisements for their then current albums. The Ray Charles signature is opposite an advertisement for his recent albums. But given what I know about Ray's signature, I would tend to believe this is actually signed by one of his assistants, and not Ray himself. Playmate Sheralee Conners signed on her centerfold picture, adding "Love". The centerfold has become unattached from the magazine at the staples (though most would probably want to remove it anyway), but is in overall very good shape. I will be happy to send further scans of the magazine, including the other autographs, and the cover. The magazine is complete, and shows quite a bit of wear on the cover, some plastic tape along the spine. There is some water staining along the bottom edges of the pages. The issue also contains articles by Shel Silverstein, Arthur C Clarke and Jules Feiffer. I obtained this and a few other vintage copies of Playboy that came from the St Louis Playboy Club mansion, that individuals would sign as they came through while visiting. 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.
