Circa 1950 Hank Williams songbook, titled Hank Williams’ Country Hit Parade
, signed on the front cover by Williams and four members of the Drifting Cowboys (Williams’ band). Williams has signed the book “Best Wishes/Hank Williams” in blue ink (grading “9”) atop his image. The four additional signatures, all of which are scripted in pencil (averaging “8/9”) to the left of Williams’ image, are those of Cedric Rainwater (bass), Jerry Rivers (fiddle), Sammy Pruett (guitar), and Don Helms (steel guitar). The 48-page softcover book features sheet music for 20 Hank Williams songs, plus photos of the legendary country singer/songwriter. Williams’ signature is rare today because of his untimely death in 1953 at the age of 29. The book (9 x 12 inches) displays moderate handling wear, including light creases to the covers. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
