Between 1957 and 1973, Ricky Nelson placed 53 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Among those hits is “Poor Little Fool,” which is the first song by any recording artist to reach #1 on the newly created “Billboard Hot 100.” It was also his only single on Imperial records to be issued without a picture sleeve. The 45 version is worth up to $20.00 but the 78 rpm issue can get you $125.00 today. Both are show here.
