A letter could work, depending on how difficult it is to get a hold of stamps from the 50's, 60's, 70's or 80's it may not be as easy to fabricate.

Back to the Future Part III has come to mind and has me feeling like if not for the aura a photograph that would show up in a newspaper or archive would be the best method. Remember the photo Marty found of Doc next to the clock taken where he'd gotten stuck in the 1800's?
Unfortunately because the aura of the leapee masks Sam that is not an option.
Well considering that at the time, the experiment had only happened a year earlier, I think a time capsule would be convincing if it was in a place that clearly hadn't been dug up any time recently.

But you're right, it would also depend on the documentation itself. Photos are out of the question, but a tape or video recording of Sam telling future events and talking about the project itself could be convincing.
