Vintage glossy 8 x 10 General Artists publicity photo of Valens in formal attire, signed and inscribed in black ballpoint, "To Reg, Best of luck always, from, Ritchie Valens.” In fine condition, with pin holes to the corners, and a bit of ink adhesion trouble. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. An appealing yearbook-style photo of Valens, whose meteoric career forced him to drop out of San Fernando High School in the autumn of 1958. One of rock and roll's most elusive and sought-after autographs.
