    Roy Rogers Signed Cowboy Hat. Roy Rogers richly deserved his title of "King of the Cowboys" - nearly 100 movies, long-running TV and radio shows, and personal appearances. His smiling image, with Dale Evans and Trigger, is one of the most winning of any Western star. Here is one of Rogers' Stetson hats, given to the consignor by Rogers at the Roy Rogers Ranch in the San Fernando Valley early in 1954. This was one of the hats selected for Roy by tailor "Nudie" Cohn -"The Bill Blass of Blue Grass," and "The Halston of Honky Tonk"! Cohn's top fame came via the gold lame jump suit Cohn designed for Elvis Presley in 1957, but his first real distinction was designing the western wardrobe of Roy and Dale in the early 1950s. The "3x Beaver Quality" light beige Stetson hat has Rogers' full name engraved on the inside band and is signed on the inside front cloth, "To Johnny from Roy Rogers." "Nudie" told the consignor that he had never seen Rogers give a fan a Stetson before, so this is a truly rare and desirable item. The hat comes with a handsome buckled leather belt that fits around its crown, and has only a few small blemishes under the brim and some light stain on the inside top. Considering the Excellent condition of the hat and autograph, and the fact that Dale Evans gave "Nudie" Cohn's eulogy at his 1984 funeral, this is a remarkable item on a variety of levels - representing the stardom, style and kindness of the true King of the Cowboys. "Happy Trails" and happy bidding! With COA from PSA/DNA.
