Slideshow: Buddy Holly and The Crickets Collection
Get an up-close look at memorabilia from the short but legendary career of rock-and-roll pioneers Buddy Holly and The Crickets.
"Antiques Roadshow" prepares to break camp in San Antonio, Texas, but first, host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Bruce Shackelford talk about the colorful history of Mexican cowboys - vaqueros - and the hot market in antique sombreros.
At the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, appraisers hog tie some lively treasures, including a collection of memorabilia from a 1957 Buddy Holly and the Crickets concert in Liverpool, England; a quintessential Texas painting of bluebonnets by noted artist Robert Wood; and four unusual Chinese porcelain panels that tell the story of the seasonal rice harvest, valued at $40,000 to $60,000.
