    Peggy Sue Ring, Record, Framed Photo and Letter. This is a truly outstanding piece of Rock n' Roll history, provided by the real-life "Peggy Sue" herself. The 16x38 framed display offers four remarkable items intimately associated with the life and legacy of Buddy Holly. Working from the display's bottom up, there's a 78 rpm record of "Peggy Sue Got Married,"on the Coral label. Then there's a sparkling engagement ring, attached to a red ribbon bow - yes, the actual ring drummer Jerry Allison presented the consignor, the real Peggy Sue, in June of 1958. Then there's a hand-written letter from Peggy Sue, telling the whole story of the songs "Peggy Sue" and "Peggy Sue Go Married." And finally, atop this material, there's a photo of Jerry Allison and his bride Peggy Sue (who were married July 22, 1958) with Buddy Holly and his wife Maria Elena Santiago, taken while the two couples were honeymooning together in Mexico City.The letter, headed "Peggy Sue Got Married" and written on attractive stationary with musical notes background, offers fascinating content; e.g., where and when she first heard the song "Peggy Sue," and that Buddy and Jerry bought engagement rings at the same time! She also notes that "Peggy Sue Got Married" was "one of the last six songs Buddy Holly wrote before his death." The consignor has signed the letter in red ink. The display is a dazzler, with mementos from the inspiration for two of Holly's signature songs. It's all in Excellent condition, and the photo, letter, record and ring make this one of the most rare and desirable pieces of Rock n' Roll legend and lore available anywhere. Note This lot is not part of the Maria Elena Holly Collection. Accompanied by LOA from Peggy Sue Gerron.
