    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.
