    Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys Autographs and Sheet Music. A dance band with a Country string section, Bob WIlls and His Texas Playboys didn't invent Western Swing, at least not singlehandedly, but they certainly played an important and prominent role in defining it and making it hugely popular. Featured is a sheet of paper bearing the signatures of some of the band's many members, including Wills, Smoky Dacus, Tommy Duncan, "Tubby" Lewis, and Johnnie Lee Wills; framed and matted along with a 9" x 7" black-and-white photo of the band (undated) and the sheet music for the song "San Antonio Rose" to an overall size of 27" x 31". The page of signatures shows some tanning (the autographs are unaffected), and the sheet music is in Very Good condition with some light edge wear and discoloration to the edges. With COA from PSA/DNA.
