Item 525 - Buddy Holly Catalog 425 (Mar 2014)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $1,383.03 (includes buyer's premium)


Original copy of the Westerner, the annual for Lubbock High School, Lubbock, Texas, for 1954, hardcover, 8.25 x 10.75, 324 pages, signed in fountain pen above his individual junior class picture, “Buddy Holley.” Holley is also pictured with the school chorus. Also pictured in the yearbook is his performing partner Bob Montgomery, Holly’s high school sweetheart Echo McGuire (’55), future Crickets drummer Jerry Allison (’56), advertisements for such Lubbock establishments as radio station KDAV and the Hi-D-Ho Drive In, and numerous other handwritten dedications to the original owner of the book from other members of the Class of 1954. In fine condition, with expected handling wear. In 1954, Holly had begun making demo records, and a year later opened for Elvis Presley at the Big D Jamboree at Lubbock’s Cotton Club. Holly legally changed the original “Holley” spelling of his last name after a misspelling on a 1956 Decca recording contract; this earlier form of his name is quite uncommon. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
