    Description

    Buddy Holly Rhythm Playboys Business Card (1956). Before (briefly) forming the Rhythm Playboys and then the legendary Buddy Holly & The Crickets, Holly started out as Buddy & Bob with Bob Montgomery. The two met at Hutchinson Junior High in 1949, and they formed a duo that sang harmony duets at local clubs and high school talent shows. This card, owned by Buddy's family, is in Excellent condition. In between starting out as Buddy & Bob with Bob Montgomery and morphing into the legendary Buddy Holly & The Crickets (as well as a couple of other groups) Holly performed very briefly with Montgomery and Don Guess as The Rhythm Playboys. This 4" x 2.5" business card, owned by Buddy's family, reads simply "The Rhythm Playboys" with Holly, Montgomery, and Guess' first names printed underneath. With minor cornerwear, otherwise in Excellent condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Buddy Holly's brother, Larry Holley.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
