Another "Our" African American Magazine. Our Grapevine

I have written previously if the list of magazines that I have collected with the word "our" in the title that are publications intended for the African American community prior to the mid 1950's
I just obtained another exquisitely rare example on eBay. While undated it is from late 1955 0r early 1956 (referring to Willie Mays as 24 years old) and published by Perrin Publications in New York, being the equivalent of Confidential.
There is only one reference to it on the web and it probably never made it to a second issue. Another exquisitely rare magazine and yet another wonderful reason to collect and appreciate magazines. Enjoy!
Here are some other rare related first issues.
