The only readable part of the cover on the front says "CCCP 12-IV-1961" (the rest is in Russian) and there is a photo of the man himself, along with what looks like his signature.
The reverse says, in seven different languages, "JURI GAGARIN IN SPACE" and "made in USSR".
The copy number on the record itself is 0007956.
I don't imagine there is much of a market for that sort of thing nowadays. Or even then!
If you think the above is crazy, I also bought, about the same time, a Microgrove Frequency Record published by Decca, Levels Accurate to Within +- = .5 dB. No idea why.
I put those purchases down to a momentary lapse of reason at the time...
