Here's a picture of the 1966 American Federation of Television/Radio Artists union agreement for Captain Beefheart, signed with both his professional name Don Van Vliet and his legal name, Don Vliet.

Musicians joined this union to collect payments due them from recording sessions, and Television and Radio appearances. This dates from Beefheart's first TV appearance, on 9th Street West, April 28, 1966 (with the Magic Band)

Offered for sale on ebay in 2009.

Also included the union receipt. 

on the right is a picture of a t-shirt that was used for the "Studio Marta" school theater technicians in Brno in the Czech Republic.
