DS, five pages, 8.5 x 11, August 25, 1982. Agreement between the Jacksons and CBS Records, in which the band directs CBS to deduct 10% from their earnings to “be paid directly to Weisner/Demann Entertainment, Inc.” Signed twice at the conclusion in ballpoint by Michael Jackson, and also signed by his brothers in full, “Steven Randall Jackson,” “Marlon David Jackson,” “Toriano A. Jackson,” and “Sigmund Esco Jackson.” In fine condition, with expected document wear. Accompanied by the original transmittal letter signed by John G. Branca, and a certificate of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL. Not only does this document feature the scarce formal signatures of the Jackson 5, but it also dates to just two months before Michael released his solo labum Thriller—which, of course, became the best selling album of all time.
