“Mr. Show Business” Sammy Davis, Jr. (d.1990) was a multi-talented performer who smashed attendance records at the Copacabana nightclub in 1964. Ironically the formerly segregated New York City hotspot served as the stage for Davis’ captivating performances during the 1960s peak of the Civil Rights movement. Presented is a Sammy Davis, Jr. signed contract for performing at the Copacabana. This single page form was detached from a standard AGVA contract and bears a series of staple holes across the top which do not contact the clearly discernable printed contents or the signatures. Two original compacting folds have negligible impact on this vintage undated document. Reminiscent of his high-energy performances, Davis’ flamboyant (“9”) quality signature appears on the bottom line below that of an undetermined Copacabana representative. No authentication due to time/costs.
