Elvis Presley Signed Candid Photograph

 

Wonderful vintage glossy 3.5 x 3.5 candid full-length photo of Elvis in his Army uniform circa late 1950s, signed on the reverse in fountain pen. Photo is laminated on both sides and has a trivial crease to one corner, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL, PSA/DNA, and JSA. Presley was one of the most well-known entertainers in the world at the time he was drafted into the US Army, and he served as a regular soldier from March 1958 to March 1960. He was first sent to Texas for training at Fort Hood before being assigned to the 3rd Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany. This had a profound effect on his life and career—while in Germany he met his future wife Priscilla, was introduced to amphetamines, and as a result of his generous patriotic service, earned the respect of an older generation of Americans, many of whom had previously viewed him in a negative light.

Elvis Presley Signed Program Photo

Wonderful vintage 8 x 10 program photo of Elvis in a handsome head-and-shoulders pose, taken from the inside of Presley’s 1957 Photo Folio, signed against the light background in blue ballpoint, “Elvis Presley.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a copy of a letter of provenance from the widow of Jerry Ledford, Elvis’s Second Lieutenant while at Fort Hood, stating that her husband was in the Army and assigned to basic training at Fort Hood at the same time Elvis was there, and that he occasionally helped to ‘smuggle’ Elvis off of the base in an effort to evade fans and paparazzi; near the end of his training, Elvis signed pages of a souvenir photo booklet for them. A fantastic image of Presley from the late 1950s, enhanced by its excellent provenance. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL.

RR Autograph Auction Elvis Presley Vintage glossy 8 x 10 publicity photo Signed

RR Autograph Auction Elvis Presley

 

Vintage glossy 8 x 10 publicity photo, signed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, “Yours, Elvis Presley.” Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the son of the original recipient, who acquired the signature in 1955 or 1956, stating “All went to the show at big spring in 55 or 56 and mother was so crying about Elvis. She had a fit over him in 54 at the…Hayride…She was so thrilled at getting him to sign the picture. We all teased her about an old woman going so silly over him. She grabbed his blue silk shirt and I think she was going to tear it. But she got his autograph. I saw him sign it. This picture of Elvis was autographed by him in person in 1955-56 at the Big Spring Texas City auditorium.” Scattered creases and surface marks to image side, heavier to edges as well as several small horizontal edge tears, some scattered light silvering and some light toning and creasing to reverse, with signature largely unaffected by flaws to photo, otherwise very good condition.
