Description:

This impressive collection of Las Vegas opening night invitations covers several Summer Festival extravaganzas. These ephemeral keepsakes are highly sought-after by collectors, with the 1971 entry being especially difficult to find in good condition due to the layered 3D element and die-cut cover. 


This offering includes the January 26, 1970 opening night invitation at the International Hotel, which is the first appearance of Elvis’ famous one-piece jumpsuit. The invite measures approximately 6 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches (16.51 by 11.43 cm). Also included is the August 9, 1971 invitation to the 2nd Annual Summer Festival. The invite measures approximately 8 by 5 inches (20.32 x 12.7 cm). This invite is accompanied by an original mailing envelope, unused, but sealed. The August 19, 1974 invite, during which Elvis opens the festival with an entirely new, never-before-seen program, measures approximately 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm). Also included is an August 19, 1974 Summer Festival opening night souvenir cocktail glass, which reads, “I saw ELVIS Live Las Vegas, Nevada, August 19, 1974, Hilton Hotel.” The glass stands 7 3/4 inches (19.685 cm) tall. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The invitations show minor signs of wear, with the glass showing even less. Near-Mint condition overall.
