    Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers Signed Receipt. A high school class ring receipt, dated October 13, 1957, bearing the signatures of Buddy Holly and Phil and Don Everly in blue ink, obtained by a young high school student named Marie Steinaker (nee Perez). Describing how she obtained the signatures, Perez says: "My friend and I were going to the second performance of a rock and roll show. We were having a sandwich in a small cafe...with a layout that was a U-shaped bar with stools on the other side. We looked over at the stools and there sat the Everly Brothers and another fellow. We got up the courage to ask for the Everly Brothers' autographs, and decided to include the third guy because we didn't want him to feel left out. We got all three signatures and sat back down in out booth and looked and...the third guy was Buddy Holly, who was by far our very favorite. He just looked so ordinary and wasn't all that recognizable yet." At the time, Autumn of 1957, Holly and the Crickets were part of an 80-day tour that included the Everly Brothers and Fats Domino; a few months later Holly and his band would embark on their historic 25-day tour of Britain. The receipt is in Very Fine condition with light wear, mild tanning, and a fold crease -- none of which affects the gorgeous, clear signatures. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
