1955 Elvis Presley Signed Early Promotional Photo “Love Ya Elvis Presley”*

From the collection of “Rockin’” Robin Rosaaen. From the collection of “Rockin’” Robin Rosaaen. In the 1950s, early in Elvis’ career, his manager, Bob Neal, hired well-known Memphis photographer William Speer to take some publicity shots of Elvis that could be used by Sun Records to promote the fledgling star. A novice in the world of photo shoots, Elvis came to Speer’s studio with no changes of clothing, so Speer had to stop after just a number of photos. Speer’s wife suggested that Elvis simply remove his shirt for a few more. The shy young man agreed and Speer was able to shoot 11 different images in total, which are today some of the most well-known images of the king. The offered image is not only one of the 11 different images taken at the shoot that day, but one of the most widely used by Sun Records to publicize its budding new musical talent. This 1955 example has a bold blue “love ya Elvis Presley” salutation in the lower center on the reverse. This inscription from the dashing young musician is the type that made hearts swoon and helped to catapult this charming young man into superstardom. The photo measures 10 by 8 inches (25.4 x 20.32 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The photo has two small areas of paper loss to the front along the top and bottom edges, heavy creasing overall, a stain to the left of Elvis’ head and pin holes at the top and bottom center. The reverse has minor staining and discoloration overall with a bright, bold signature (slight ink fading in some areas) and is overall in Good condition.

Elvis Presley’s 1960s Ampex 2000 Series Tape Recorder from His Beverly

Elvis’ passion for new technology was widely known, and it’s only fitting that an entertainer of his magnitude would have the latest and greatest home recording system. The offered 1960s Ampex 2000 series tape recorder, serial number A10863, was used by Elvis in his Beverly Hills home on Hillcrest Drive. This Ampex model 2050 was originally sold with other furnishings from Elvis’ Hillcrest home in the Don B. Smith auction and was previously on display at The Elvis Presley Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This high-tech model contains a tag from Weingarten Electronics in Los Angeles and is described in the original Ampex brochure (not included) as being “designed for those who wish to obtain the convenient automatic features of the Model 2070, but already have a system containing power amplifiers and external speakers. The unit is basically a tape transport (identical to Model 2070) with pre-amplifiers. Framing the unit is a die-cast aluminum ‘picture frame’ which overlaps mounting cut-outs... making for neat, quick installation. May be installed vertically, horizontally or at any angle. Mounting frame provides ample ventilation for wall or furniture installation.” The retail price at the time was $439.00. The unit, which measures 13 by 18 1/2 by 7 inches (33.02 x 46.99 x 17.78 cm), is accompanied by a copy of a black-and-white image of Elvis standing over a similar type of recording machine and a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

On April 27, 1977 Elvis performs at the Auditorium Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Elvis arrives at the arena early, before the heat has been turned on, and the arena manager gives Elvis the offered Schlitz jacket to wear to keep him warm until the show. The details of the evening are best recounted by Elvis’ bodyguard Richard "Dick" Grob in his notarized letter that states in part:, On April 27, 1977 Elvis performs at the Auditorium Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Elvis arrives at the arena early, before the heat has been turned on, and the arena manager gives Elvis the offered Schlitz jacket to wear to keep him warm until the show. The details of the evening are best recounted by Elvis’ bodyguard Richard "Dick" Grob in his notarized letter that states in part: "I do not recall if the weather was on the cold side or if the arena was cold because of ice being on the arena floor or the air conditioning was working extra hard because of the expected crowd. In any event, Elvis was cold and wanted something to wear over his jump suit. The arena manager came to the dressing room and asked if everything was satisfactory. I told him that Elvis was cold and asked if there was some way to turn the heat on in the dressing room. Since we were a little early in arriving at the arena, Elvis had to spend more time than usual back stage. The manager said that it was impossible to turn the heat up in just one room, but he thought that he could fix the problem. The manager left and returned in less than five minutes. He had a yellow ‘Schlitz’ jacket wrapped in a plastic bag. He unwrapped the jacket and held it for Elvis to put on. He told Elvis that the jacket should keep him ‘toasty.’ Elvis said he was already getting warm and thanked him for the jacket. The manager told Elvis that ‘Schlitz’ was a popular beer made in Milwaukee and the brewery gave the arena jackets to give to the stars and he was happy to give one to Elvis. Elvis said that he did not drink beer but if he did he would try ‘Schlitz.’ Elvis wore the jacket both in the dressing room and back stage. He did not take it off until he was going on stage when he threw it to me." Dick goes on to say that Elvis didn’t need it again after the show and suggested Dick keep it. Dick did in fact keep and wear the jacket many times. A color snapshot of Dick wearing the jacket, possibly by the pool at Graceland, is also included. The yellow nylon-shell jacket is lined with yellow fleece and has a maroon embroidered Schlitz patch on the left chest and maroon stripes down the arms. The tags indicate it was made by Swingster World of Wearables in Bonner Springs, Kansas and is a size large. The jacket has a six-snap front closure, two front pockets, a drawstring tie bottom and ribbed cuffs. The jacket is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The jacket exhibits evidence of wear, with a frayed rip at one sleeve cuff.

1956 Love Me Tender Belgian Movie Poster - Beautifully Framed - Starring

The offered Belgian poster features a beautiful and vibrantly colored illustration showing Elvis in several scenes, but most importantly with his guitar. The inset text alerts potential young moviegoers that the film features “The King of Rock and Roll with 4 New Songs!” Days and times for the local theater are written in marker at the top of the poster. The blank spaces on Belgian posters were meant for this type of local theatre information to be written in or added, as in the offered example. Importantly for collectors, the phrase “Imp. J. Lichtert & Fils - Bruxelles” appears printed on the lower right of the bottom border—later Belgian reprints often have these phrases printed in English. The metal plaque at the bottom of the frame reads “Love Me Tender / Belgium.” The poster measures 15 by 22 inches (38.1 x 55.88 cm), is framed to dimensions of 18 by 25 inches (45.72 x 63.5 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

1968 Live a Little, Love a Little Belgian Movie Poster - Beautifully

The offered movie poster was employed to promote Elvis Presley’s 1968 film Live a Little, Love a Little in the Belgian market. It features the main illustration seen on the U.S. one sheets and half sheets, but with a cleaner, more simple overall design. Normally European posters of the era utilized very different, illustrated artwork than their U.S. counterparts, but perhaps because this one already used an illustration the Belgians decided to stand pat. Regardless of the reason, we are left with an attractive artifact. The metal plaque at the bottom of the frame reads “Live a Little, Love a Little / Belgium.” The poster measures 15 by 20 inches (38.1 x 50.8 cm), is framed to dimensions of 18 by 23 inches (45.72 x 58.42 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
