Posted October 14th, 2015 at 11:17 AM by unclefred (American Miscellanea)

It's only the second photo of him authenticated thus far. The other being the famous Ft. Sumner photo. The owner of the photo, Randy Guijarro of Freemont, Calif. picked it up for $2 from a junk dealer. It's stated worth is up to $5 million.

The photo shows Billy and several other Regulators playing croquet in the Summer of 1878.

There are other photos out there proclaiming to be Billy but this one is the real deal and authenticated.

Doors Gone Country

Your bacon makes a grown man cry
The liver on the other...
