    Buddy Holly Passport. Issued to Charles Hardin Holly on January 23, 1958, it features a picture of Buddy and is signed twice with his real name, Charles Holley. The passport was obtained by Holly not long before he and the Crickets embarked on their legendary tour of the U. K., and is stamped with visits to England dated February 28 and March 25, 1958, as well as Australia dated January 30 and July 24, 1958. In a true sign of the times, the restrictions page states that the document was not valid for travel in "Albania, Bulgaria, and those portions of China, Korea and Viet-Nam under Communist control." This one-of-a-kind item chronicles the U. K. tour that made the future founders of such British groups as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones aware of Holly's genius, and is in Excellent condition with only the faintest signs of wear. With COA from Maria Elena Holly.
