    Dean Martin Rare Recording Contract with Capitol Records (1951). Superb signed document, two pages, both sides (4 sides total), 8.5 x 11, Capitol Records, Inc. letterhead, December 21 1951. An exclusive artists' contract in which Martin agrees to continue his then well-established musical career with Capitol for an additional five-year period, receiving a total of $10,000 plus 5% of all royalties pertaining to the sale and airing of all his tracks recorded during the contractual period. Initialed by Martin throughout the body of the document a total of twelve (12) times and signed in full, "Dean Martin," at the conclusion in black ink. Multiple rider and amendment slips have been taped onto both pages, leaving some staining as a result of adhesion staining. However, all text remains fully legible and Martin's signature stands bold and unaffected.
