Elvis Presley Autograph
A collection of memorabilia with an Elvis Presley autograph is a wonderful tribute to this legendary star. Elvis came from humble beginnings. Elvis and his family lived in a small house in Tupelo, Mississippi. Presley's foray into the wold of music began when he won second place for a singing contest at the 1945 Mississippi-Alabama Fair. One year later, on his eleventh birthday, his mother gave him a guitar. Presley began taking guitar lessons from the son of his family's preacher.
After graduating from high school Elvis had a succession of delivery jobs. After failing an audition for a local band in town, Elvis recorded two songs at the Memphis Recording Service in September 1953. Through his experience at the recording studio, Elvis met guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black. The group formed Elvis Presley's first band and went on to record top-hot records and play on radio. Elvis and his band went through their ups and downs.
But the money poured in. Elvis spent lavishly on presents for family, friends, and complete strangers. He is known to give Cadillac automobiles to people visiting showrooms. Presley owned homes in Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, and Holmby Hills. He also purchased a four-engine plane that he had customized on the inside with a custom bar, gold sinks, a conference room, and a huge bedroom (of course!). Elvis once flew from Memphis to Denver to pick up a banana-peanut butter sandwich from a shop that was highly recommended. He loved peanut butter sandwiches.
In June 1977, Elvis performed his final show in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was hospitalized at the Memphis Baptist Hospital several times for fatigue and drug abuse. Elvis's precarious state is reflected in the shaky handwriting shown in our displayed check. On August 6, 1977, Elvis suffered a fatal heart attack while reading a book in his Graceland Mansion. His memory lives on through his reputation as a superb entertainer.
This must have Elvis Presley autograph check image is suitable for framing. His amazing story is detailed in Money Secrets of the Rich and Famous. This Elvis Presley autograph reproduction would look great in an album or display.
