This original Elvis Presley Blank Personal Appearance Contract was produced in 1956 by Colonel Tom Parker (Elvis' Manager) for bookings of the king. The design employs the same iconic photo which graced the cover of his first album on RCA Victor - as well as the commonly used quote description of the Elvis as "The Atomic Powered Singer”. This contract is in fantastic pinhole free condition with only horizontal creases from being folded into quarters. 100% Original with no restoration. THIS PIECE CAME DIRECTLY FROM THE GRACELAND ARCHIVES! Another example of this collectible sold in another public auction earlier this year for over $1000.
