    Description

    Group of Five Mad Contracts, Signed by William Gaines and Others (c. 1980s). An interesting group of five contracts for various legalities pertaining to Mad paperbacks: 1 (contract for the Mad paperback "Jumble Book" - signed by Frank Jacobs, Bob Clarke, and William Gaines), 2 (contract for the Swedish Mad paperback "Mad Around the World" - signed by Frank Jacobs, Paul Peter Porges, and William Gaines), 3 (contract for the German edition of Mad paperback "Believe it or Nuts" - signed by Frank Jacobs, Bob Clarke, and William Gaines), 4 (contract for the Mad paperback "Mad for Better or Verse" - signed by Frank Jacobs, Paul Coker, and William Gaines), and 5 (contract for the Mad paperback "Sing Along" - signed by Frank Jacobs, Al Jaffee, and Williams Gaines). These contracts would be a great addition to any Mad-fan collection.
