Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Collectibles
The popularity of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in the 1940s, 50s and 60s was amazing. Every afternoon millions of youngsters rushed home from grade school and then sat glued to their TV screens as their heroes of "The Roy Rogers Show", with co-star Pat Brady, and his dog Bullet rode through yet another western adventure. Roy and Dale once received over 78,000 pieces of fan mail in a single month. They were simply the most popular Hollywood cowboy and cowgirl the world has ever known.
And their adoring fans showed their adulation by purchasing anything marked with Roy's name, and merchandisers knew it. There where pearl handled cap pistols with leather holsters, cowboy hats, cereal premiums, comic books, Little Golden books, lunch boxes, trading cards, alarm clocks, lamps, bedspreads and endless parade of plastic cowboy figures.
Today those logo items are cherished and sought after by enthusiasts around the world. The market for Hollywood cowboy collectibles has become very active, as many of the same fans that grew up with Roy and Dale as their cowboy heroes in the fifties are now avid collectors. Add to that, the fact that many of those same items are now truly rare, and you can see why collecting vintage Roy Rogers and Dale Evans merchandise has become a smart collectible investment area.
