    Ritchie Valens Cufflinks with Vintage Photos. A talented musician whose career was cut short in its prime, Ritchie Valens nevertheless managed to record some of the greatest and most influential songs of the 1950s. Featured here is a pair of silver cufflinks with a matching tie clip, each decorated with musical notes and in Excellent condition. Included with them is a b&w 8" x 10" photo with a printed signature, also in Excellent condition, as well as two other vintage photos of the singer (Fine to Excellent). Finally, the real treasure in this lot is an early tattered photo that our conisgnor, one of Ritchie's best friends in junior high, kept in her purse for years after his death, and a green album page signed by Ritchie when he was in junior high school. This could be the earliest known Ritchie Valens signature ever offered. Even at this early age, Ritchie's friend knew he was destined to become a star.
