A copy of the 1972 yearbook from West Junior High in Rochester Hills, MI is being sold at auction. As you may know, this is significant because Madonna was a 14 year old student at the jr. high school at the time. It turns out that Maddy’s childhood friend Nancy is selling her yearbook at auction in the hopes of making a significant sum of money. The yearbook has added value because it features Madonna’s 14 year old autograph. Click below to see what Madonna looked like at 14 and what she inscribed in this yearbook.
A photograph of Madonna at the age of 14 has surfaced as a former classmate prepares to sell her yearbook at auction. The photograph, which appeared in the 1972 yearbook of West Junior High School in Michigan, shows the singer with dark brown locks and a innocent smile across her face. Despite the sweet-as-pie expression, the mega star, now 53, was said to be a rebellious student at the Rochester Hills, Michigan school. Set to be auctioned through Christie’s in London, the yearbook belongs to ‘Nancy’ and is expected to fetch about $2350 when it goes on sale on June 12. The pop queen had also written a note to her classmate, which read: ‘Dear Nancy, I hope you have fun at Adams and the years to come. Madonna “76”‘.
Adams is said to be a reference to Adams High School, where Madonna later went herself. The number ’76’ is said to refer to her cheerleading number at the time. Beneath the black and white photograph reads her full name – Madonna Ciccone.
Wow. This would be an amazing thing to own. I’m certain there’s a Madonna fan out there ready to shell out as much money as it takes to bring this yearbook home. Interestingly enough, I also attended a West Junior High School in Michigan but nowhere near Rochester Hills, MI. I sincerely doubt anyone would ever want to buy my jr. high yearbook at auction but … I guess you never know ;) In any event, this is a pretty cool little piece of Madonna history that is soon going to be sold to the highest bidder. Any chance any of y’all are gonna place a bid in the hopes of winning?
