The Big Bopper J P Richardson Autograph "Chantilly Lace" B/W "Purple People Eater Meets Witch Doctor" 45 Single Record
The single "Chantilly Lace" backed with "Purple People Eater Meets Witch Doctor" signed on the "Chantilly Lace" side by The Big Bopper in pencil. This is the original 1958 release on Mercury Records. The Big Bopper is a rare autograph in any form, the rarest of the three who died together in a plane crash (Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens being the others). His signature on this, his iconic hit, makes it exceedingly rare. The signature was obtained by veteran collector Stephanie Kolowski in November 1958 at the Little Theatre in New York. The Big Bopper was then performing on Dick Clark's "Saturday Night Beechnut Show"
