Buddy Holly Auction

Heritage Auctions is holding another high profile auction:

Long after she is gone, Maria Elena Holly wants people to remember her husband, rock ‘n’ roll icon Buddy Holly. …For 47 years, Maria held on to these trinkets, poignant reminders of the past.

Childhood photographs. Handwritten notes. A 1958 passport. The engraved wristwatch he was wearing when his small plane crashed near an Iowa farmhouse during a light snowstorm.
