Name of Lot: Historic Country Music Autographed Albums
Brief Description: Three historic, country music recording artists, signed LP’s. Faron Young, Lynn Anderson and Sonny James. These signed LP’s are from the collection of a then young country music fan, who took thousands of photos and obtained hundreds of autographs in person, during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. The collection merits a book due to the quality of the never before seen photographs, the fan obtained in her lifetime.
