1. Auction A Circle, LLC d/b/a Graceland Auctions has endeavored to accurately describe all items being sold. All items are sold as is, where is, with all faults. There are no warranties or representations of merchantability, of fitness, nor of any other kind, express or implied. All items are available for your examination prior to bidding by appointment only. Your bidding will signify that you have examined the items as fully as desired, or that you have chosen not to examine them. Please note that photographs may have had size modifications for display purposes, or been trimmed to exclude framing, matting, and wide blank margins. Also, imperfections from the photography process can include reflections and variations in color due to digital processing. Auction A Circle, LLC shall have no responsibility for any error or omission. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear, imperfections or aging. Any condition statement, written or verbal, is given as a courtesy to the client, and is only an opinion. It should not be treated as a statement of fact. Written and oral descriptions are statements of opinion and should in no way be construed as a guarantee of any kind as to age, condition, materials or any other feature of items being sold. Auction A Circle, LLC's goal is to provide prospective bidders with accurate and detailed information. Auction A Circle, LLC recommends prospective bidders examine all items in which they have an interest. If you require absolute certainty in all areas of authenticity, and the results of your evaluation leave uncertainty in your mind, it is recommended you not bid on the item in question. Estimates provided are an opinion as to the price that a willing buyer would pay for the property at auction. These estimates are neither a representation nor a prediction of the actual selling price that will be realized at auction. All sales are final. No statement written or oral made by the auctioneer shall be deemed a warranty or assumption of liability by Auction A Circle, LLC or by any seller represented by Auction A Circle, LLC. Auction A Circle, LLC reserves the right to withdraw any property before the sale.

2. The Auctioneer will be the final judge as to who is the successful bidder. In the event of any dispute, the Auctioneer shall, at his discretion, decide whether or not to reopen the bidding. It is the bidder's responsibility to get Auction A Circle, LLC'S attention prior to the Auctioneer saying "sold". Auction A Circle, LLC reserves the right to reject any bids deemed inappropriate. If an item is withdrawn from the auction it will be offered again only at the Auctioneer's discretion. Title to all merchandise shall pass to the successful bidder at the fall of the Auctioneer's "hammer". The purchaser shall assume full responsibility for the lot purchased once title has passed.

All lots offered in this catalog are subject to a reserve, the amount of which is confidential between AAC and the consignor, but will not exceed the printed low estimate in the catalog. We reserve the right to open the live auction bidding and bid up to the amount of the reserve by placing successive or consecutive bids for a lot, or bid in response to other bidders.

1956 Armed Forces Radio & Television Oversized 16-inch LP Featuring Elvis Presley

Estimate: $500 - $700

Description: The Armed Forces Radio & Television Service was established in 1942 by the War Department to broadcast popular American radio and television to troops, government employees and families stationed overseas. It is still in operation today under the name American Forces Network, and over the years many stars have rallied to support U.S. efforts abroad. The offered oversized 16-inch LP with green and white label reads, "Armed Forces Radio & Television Service Station Library." Side one has songs by Elvis Presley with Scotty and Bill, including "I Forgot to Remember," "Mystery Train," "Heartbreak Hotel" and "I Was the One." Side two has songs by Red Nichols and His Orchestra, which include "Bugler's Lament," "The Wall of the Winds," "Glory, Glory" and "Corky." Also on this side is an additional song by Red Nichols and His Five Pennies entitled "Panama." Both sides of the label are printed with "Property of the United States Government." Based on the songs "Heartbreak Hotel" and "I Was the One," both of which were recorded in early 1956, this record would have been released in 1956. The dates of release of the Red Nichols songs, 1955 and 1956, also support this hypothesis. The record disc, with green paper sleeve, measures 16 inches (40.64 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The record is in overall Excellent condition with green paper sleeve.

Autry and Eddy Arnold, whom the Colonel represented, often toured together for various shows. This original letter addressed to Thomas A. Parker from Gene Autry on Gene Autry Hollywood, California letterhead dated September 20, 1950 states, "Thanks for your letter of August 10th enclosing pictures of all of us taken at the Knickerbocker Hotel. I am sorry I have not answered sooner but have been out of town on location for the past two months and have not had a day in the office. I appreciate your sending along the pictures, and also appreciate your suggestion about the Checkerboard Jamboree show. Don't know at this time when I might be down that way but I certainly will let you know if I come through. Thanks again, and please give my regards to all the gang. Kindest personal regards. Sincerely, Gene Autry." The letter is signed in blue ink simply "Gene" with a handwritten note that reads, "This letter was written the day after I left the Coast but was misdirected in the mail when sent to me for signing."

The letter, measuring 10 1/ 2 by 7 1/4 inches (26.67 x 18.41 cm), emanates from the 1999 Graceland Archives Auction (lot A010) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Elvis Presley Owned and Worn Gold and Diamond Panther Head Ring Gifted to Tour Promoter Tom Hulett

Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: This 14-karat yellow gold men's panther head ring has marquise-shaped diamond eyes that each weigh 0.18 carat, a diamond in the panther's mouth that weighs 0.20 carat and measures 3.8 mm, and is exquisitely designed in a size 10. The ring, which weighs 28.5 grams, is textured overall with a squared base. This ring was gifted by Elvis to Tom Hulett who, with Colonel Parker, managed Elvis' live performances in the 1970s. The ring is a stunning example of the kind of dramatic touch that Elvis was always seeking in his wardrobe and especially in his jewelry. Elvis adored larger rings later in his career, and since the symbolism of the panther represents courage, valor and power, this ring would have been a perfect choice for Elvis in his career. The ring comes with a letter which recounts the circumstances of the acquisition of the ring and states in part, "One of the items I picked up from Tom Hulett at this time was an impressive gold Panther Ring with diamonds in the eyes. I believe Tom told me Elvis gave him the ring around '73 or '74. Much later I found out that Elvis appears to be wearing this ring in the same pictures where he is wearing the Turban or Swami Ring, where he is wearing a turban, the long red coat with black accents, and the Ram Head necklace." This majestic ring is also accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The ring is in excellent condition overall.

Elvis Presley Concert Ticket from Miami's Olympia Theatre for 7 PM Show, August 4, 1956, with Souvenir Photo Album and Button

Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000

Description: On August 4, 1956 Elvis played four shows at the Olympic Theatre in Miami. The Saturday shows following the opening Friday shows continued with screaming fans who, as papers reported, were so hysterical that the star was barely audible above the shrieks from the audience. It was at these shows that Elvis' pants were torn and his lavender jacket was ripped by overly enthusiastic fans. Elvis also had to trade in his lavender Lincoln, only weeks old, after it was vandalized with love notes and phone numbers scrawled all over in lipstick. The Elvis frenzy was in full bloom! This wonderfully preserved fan collection consists of an August 4, 1956 original ticket stub from the 7 p.m. concert. The lucky fan paid only $1.50 to see the King live in the Olympic Theater that evening. This fan not only saved the ticket stub, but also the Souvenir Photo Album with a full-color image of Elvis on both the front and back covers and an "I Like Elvis" pinback button.

1955 Elvis Presley Signed Promotional Photo - Signed on the Front

Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: This early 1955 black-and-white promo photograph depicts a young Elvis Presley with big smile, slicked back hair, and wearing a coat and tie. "Elvis Presley" is printed in the lower center margin. The photo has been signed "yours Elvis Presley" in ink on the front. While the ink has slightly faded, it is significant to note that the photo was not signed on the reverse like the vast majority of examples. In this image, Elvis apears to be wearing the same jacket and shirt as he is donning in well-known photograph of Elvis flanked by Sam Philiips and Bob Neal signing the management contract with Bob Neal which went into effect on January 1, 1955. The offered promotional photo was likely shot right around the time of the commemorative photo signing with Phillips and Neal. The most well known promotional images of Elvis were by William Speer and were shot in Speer's studio in July 1955, making this head shot earlier and more rare than the famous Speer images. The photo measures approximately 8 by 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The image is in excellent condition overall with a horizontal crease through the upper quadrant near Elvis hairline and a small tear through the E in the printed Elvis in the lower margin. The marker signature has faded over time.

1956 <em>Love Me Tender</em> Half Sheet Movie Poster - Elvis Presley's Film Debut!

Estimate: $500 - $1,000

Description: Elvis Presley exploded onto the national scene in 1956 with a slew of #1 hits for RCA, several landmark television appearances and his Hollywood film debut as Clint Reno in Love Me Tender. The film was retitled from The Reno Brothers late in production to capitalize on the raging success of the single "Love Me Tender," which sold an unprecedented 1 million copies prior to its release. The film was premiered by 20th Century Fox on November 15, 1956, in New York City and on November 20 in Memphis. Elvis attended the Memphis showing with his mother Gladys. When Gladys cried at the death of her son's character at the end of the movie, Elvis vowed never again to take a role in which his character perished. Gladys wasn't the only one to take umbrage with Elvis' onscreen demise—when test audiences reacted poorly to seeing him expire, the studio quickly had Elvis add another verse to the title track that could be sung by his ghostly image above the final scene.The offered half sheet prominently features Elvis with his guitar and the caption "MR. ROCK 'N' ROLL IN THE STORY HE WAS BORN TO PLAY!" Also pictured on this classic example of the highly sought-after Elvis movie poster are co-stars Richard Egan and Debra Paget. The poster is framed and a plaque at the bottom center of the frame reads "Love Me Tender / Half Sheet." Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The poster measures approximately 28 by 22 inches (71.12 by 55.88 cm).

Condition Report: The beautifully framed half sheet exhibits expected minor scuffs and wrinkles, a small area of paper loss along the left edge, and several pinholes in the corners. In the lower right corner is handwritten the numbers "62-75"—this is a National Screen Service (NSS) notation indicating that this poster was utilized during the film's 1962 re-release after being returned to the NSS from the film's original release in 1956. Despite its obvious use and display (in two different years, no less!), the colors remain bold with none of the distresses affecting the impact of the central images. In overall excellent condition.

1956 Telegram from Elvis Presley to Colonel Parker, Sent While Elvis Was Traveling to Los Angeles via Las Vegas -- From the 1999 Graceland Archives Auction

Estimate: $400 - $600

Description: Elvis traveled by train from Memphis to Las Vegas in November 1956. He arrived in Vegas on November 9th and stayed until November 12th, when he rented a car and drove to Los Angeles. Upon his arrival, Elvis sent a telegram to the Colonel to reassure him that he would make his appointment in Los Angeles. He mentioned the DJ convention that the Colonel was attending in Nashville during his absence. Elvis had attended the conference the prior year, in 1955, and it was there that he met Mae Axton, who introduced him to her song "Heartbreak Hotel." The telegram is marked from Green River, Wyoming, a place Elvis had never performed, so it's likely the telegram had been routed through that location on its way to the Colonel.  The original Western Union telegram dated November 9, 1956 to Colonel Tom Parker from Elvis reads, "Colonel Tom Parker = Exclusive Mgr Elvis Presley Wux Madison Tenn = Trip so far has been comfortable. Expect to be in Los Angeles Sunday afternoon for my appointment Monday morning. Am stopping over in Las egas [sic] for a few hours. Hope the D J covention [sic] is going well, wish I could have made it as I did last year. Please express my sincere wishes to all for a successful convention = Elvin [sic] Presley." The telegram, measuring 5 1/2 by 6 inches (13.97 x 15.24 cm), emanated from the 1999 Graceland Archives Auction (lot A121) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The telegram is in excellent condition overall, with pencil notations in the top right and the handwritten number "418" in lower right.

1974 Elvis Presley Stage-Worn Scarf Handed to a Fan from the Stage in Las Vegas

Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: Elvis was known to use scarves during his concert performances in the 1970s. The gesture was so popular among fans that the Colonel capitalized on it by creating and selling souvenir scarves with a printed Elvis signature at the shows. It was not uncommon for Charlie or one of the crew to grab some of these souvenir scarves to hand to Elvis during a performance, as he would continuously wipe his brow and toss the scarf into the audience. Fans were typically excited enough just to see Elvis live in concert, but imagine the thrill of catching a scarf that Elvis pulled from around his neck and tossed into the audience—that was the elation felt by the lucky fan that was fortunate enough to capture this memento from the king. This white scarf with blue "Elvis Presley" facsimile signature comes with a letter dated July 14, 2010 from the woman who received the scarf from Elvis that reads, in part: "I spent a week in Las Vegas in August of 1974 and saw several Las Vegas acts but what I went there for was to see Elvis Presley. I saw some great acts that week but no one could match Elvis Presley. He was absolutely electrifying...I know the show I attended was a few days after opening night, and I remember he was not wearing his usual sparkling jumpsuit but instead some type of tan leather outfit. Of course the highlight of the evening for me was when I approached the stage and Elvis wrapped one of his scarves around my neck and kissed me."Based on her description of the outfit, this was most likely the fourth night of the engagement, August 22, 1974, when Elvis wore a plain beige leather two-piece ensemble. This scarf with rounded corners comes with other mementos, including a Summer Festival menu that measures 10 by 8 inches (25.4 x 20.32 cm), a souvenir photo, a Styrofoam hat that has an inside diameter of 8 inches (20.32 cm), a souvenir pin measuring 2 1/4 inches (5.71 cm) in diameter and a small souvenir photo album measuring 4 7/8 by 4 7/8 inches (12.38 x 12.38 cm). The scarf measures 34 by 34 inches (86.36 by 86.36 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The scarf presents with no defects, very clean with stains likely from perspiration. Near Mint condition.

Estimate: $300 - $500

Description: From the collection of "Rockin'" Robin Rosaaen.This handsome framed display features black-and-white 8 x 10 inch photos of Colonel Parker and Elvis, one of which is signed and inscribed in brown marker "To the dog house [remainder is undecipherable]" by Colonel Parker across the image.

In the images Colonel Parker can be seen wearing an Elvis pinback button similar to the one at the bottom of the framed display.

Elvis Presley Owned Diamond and Blue Sapphire Owl Ring - Gifted to Charlie Hodge

Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: The offered ring emanates from Charlie Hodge. It was purchased in the early 1980s along with 11 other rings and the original box in which Elvis kept them when he gave them to Charlie. The letter that accompanies details our consignor's acquisition of the incredible group of rings and reads, in part: At one point in the very early 1980's there was an event in Antwerp, organized by the Belgian fan club, that featured Charlie Hodge as the headliner. He was one of the very first people who had known Elvis up close to come to Europe to speak at an Elvis event. I found Charlie in one of the hallways at one point and talked to him for about twenty minutes. He was a bit shocked to hear a teenager asking if he had any of Elvis' stuff for sale, but I convinced him that I was very, very serious about expanding my Elvis collection with as many personal items as possible. He told me he was going to do an event in Paris next, but to visit him at his hotel the next morning. He showed me a small black box full of rings, and said Elvis had asked him to hold on to them at some point in the early 70's and then had never asked for them again afterwards. He said this kind of stuff would happen all the time, because Elvis would go through a lot of rings and other jewelry all the time. He asked me if there was any ring I liked best, that I was most interested in buying from him. I could not take my eyes off the box and immediately knew I wanted the entire thing! Within minutes we agreed on a price for all 12 rings that were in the box. I was short so I borrowed some money from my parents, and we left with a dozen of Elvis' rings!The owl is known to symbolize wisdom and it was a favorite of Elvis', who would wear jewelry adorned with the depiction of an owl. This 14-karat yellow gold ring weighs 12 grams and has two round blue sapphire eyes which each measure 2.9 mm and a singular V-shaped brow of 15 1-point diamonds. This owl ring is marked 14K and has gold-feathered texture surrounding the eyes, brow and beak. The ring, gifted to Elvis entourage member Charlie Hodge, measures a size 8 and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The ring is in overall excellent condition.

1956 Topps

Estimate: $500 - $1,000

Description: Topps was founded in 1890 as American Leaf Tobacco, a tobacco importer that ran into difficulties during World War I when supplies were cut off. To stay afloat, in 1938 it became known as Topps and started manufacturing chewing gum. In 1950, to bolster the sale of its chewing gum against rival Bazooka, which sold its product wrapped in a comic strip, Topps began offering trading cards with their chewing gum. In 1956, Topps created the first of many trading card sets on the market dedicated to Elvis Presley, the King of Rock 'n' Roll. This original set includes 66 cards, the first 46 of which feature full-color images of Elvis in his musical career on the front with a descriptive caption contained in a red guitar. These 46 became known as the "Ask Elvis" cards, because on the back is the image of a telephone operator with the title "Ask Elvis," under which a question is posed and then answered in Elvis' voice, with his printed signature below. The only exception is the "Record Collector's Check List" card that lists on the reverse the current Elvis 45 RPM records of the time. The remaining 20 cards feature Elvis' film debut in Love Me Tender with full-color images of scenes from the movie captioned by a red movie clapboard replacing the red guitar. The reverse provides a description of the scene plot depicted in the front image. The cards are copyright Bubbles, Inc. and are printed in the U.S.A. Bubbles, Inc. was a "subsidiary" brand Topps created for non-sports trading card sets. This set is highly sought-after by collectors as the most popular entertainment series of trading cards produced, and the first to feature a single music artist. The set was produced in what would become the standard larger Topps trading card size, each card measuring 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches (8.89 x 6.35 cm). This incredible original full set is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 

Condition Report: This very presentable set presents with few major defects to any cards. The checklist card appears to be trimmed-it is short, top to bottom. Excellent to Mint condition overall, with a few lesser.

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. The metal plaque at the bottom of the frame reads "Loving You / Belgium." The poster measures 22 by 17 inches (55.88 x 43.18 cm), is framed to dimensions of 25 by 20 inches (63.5 x 50.8 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Elvis Presley Owned Gold and Diamond Cocktail Ring Gifted to Charlie Hodge

Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: The offered ring emanates from Charlie Hodge. It was purchased in the early 1980s along with 11 other rings and the original box in which Elvis kept them when he gave them to Charlie. The letter that accompanies details our consignor's acquisition of the incredible group of rings and reads, in part: At one point in the very early 1980's there was an event in Antwerp, organized by the Belgian fan club, that featured Charlie Hodge as the headliner. He was one of the very first people who had known Elvis up close to come to Europe to speak at an Elvis event. I found Charlie in one of the hallways at one point and talked to him for about twenty minutes. He was a bit shocked to hear a teenager asking if he had any of Elvis' stuff for sale, but I convinced him that I was very, very serious about expanding my Elvis collection with as many personal items as possible. He told me he was going to do an event in Paris next, but to visit him at his hotel the next morning. He showed me a small black box full of rings, and said Elvis had asked him to hold on to them at some point in the early 70's and then had never asked for them again afterwards. He said this kind of stuff would happen all the time, because Elvis would go through a lot of rings and other jewelry all the time. He asked me if there was any ring I liked best, that I was most interested in buying from him. I could not take my eyes off the box and immediately knew I wanted the entire thing! Within minutes we agreed on a price for all 12 rings that were in the box. I was short so I borrowed some money from my parents, and we left with a dozen of Elvis' rings!When Elvis discovered a style he liked, he would often acquire several examples of the piece of jewelry, especially since he was prone to generosity and would often give someone the shirt off his back or the ring off his finger.The offered 10-karat, flower-shaped diamond cluster ring weighs 7 grams with seven champagne-colored diamonds, one weighing 0.12 carat and measuring 3.0 mm and the remaining six each weighing 0.15 carat and measuring 3.3 mm. The ring, size 9 1/2, was gifted by Elvis to Charlie Hodge. Elvis was known to wear this style of ring on stage so it's only fitting that he would have had multiple examples made. This ring is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The ring is in good condition overall with one chipped diamond.

September 1956 Photo of Elvis Presley and Scotty Moore Rehearsing a Song at Radio Recorders Studios in West Hollywood, CA *

Estimate: $500 - $1,000

Description: From the Family of Scotty MooreScotty shared a special relationship with Elvis, first recording with him in Sun Studios in 1954. Elvis, Scotty, Bill Black and DJ Fontana formed the band known as the Blue Moon Boys. At the beginning of Elvis' career, Scotty served as his first manager and played guitar on most of Elvis' famous early recordings. Scotty also appeared in three of Elvis' films before going his separate way after a dispute over wages. This incredible early black-and-white photograph captures a spontaneous moment between Elvis and Scotty where Scotty pauses from playing his guitar to glance up at Elvis, who is gazing at sheet music he is holding while rehearsing. The photo was most likely taken in September 1956 at Radio Recorders Studio in California based on two factors: the acoustic wall tiles are very similar to those at Radio Recorders, and other dated images from the session show Elvis wearing a shirt very similar, if not identical, to the one he is wearing in this shot. The three-day recording session covered many songs inlcuding "Long Tall Sally," "Old Shep," "Ready Teddy" and "Rip it Up." This small snapshot, emanating directly from the family of Scotty Moore, has white top and bottom borders, measures 3 1/2 by 2 3/8 inches (8.89 x 6.03 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: This special photograph is in excellent condition overall, with slight surface scratching to the right of Elvis' head and pink lipstick kiss marks on the bottom reverse.

Scotty Moore's Personal U.S.S. Arizona Benefit *" itemprop="image">

Estimate: $400 - $500

Description: From the Family of Scotty MoorePerhaps what so endears Elvis Presley to his fans was his never-ending spirit of giving. In December of 1960, an editorial ran in an L.A. paper about the stalled efforts to complete the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. This article was spotted by the Colonel and Elvis answered the call to duty. On January 11, 1961, a press conference was held and it was announced that Elvis would perform a benefit concert on the condition that every penny from the concert go to the fund. Elvis had just turned 26 and the fact that the average age of the 1,177 American seamen that died aboard the U.S.S. Arizona during the Pearl Harbor attack was about the same age was not lost on him. Having honorably served his country, the memorial to the soldiers lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor was near and dear to Elvis' heart and he pledged to buy the first ticket at a cost of $100. Tickets ranged in price so everyone that wished could afford to attend, with 100 reserved seats priced at $100 each. Everyone, including Scotty Moore, was required to purchase their own ticket to the benefit concert. One hundred percent of the proceeds were slated to go directly to the fund. The concert was March 25th, 1961, and 4,000 screaming fans, 15 songs and $54,000 later, Elvis left the building. As a result of the concert and the huge amount of media attention it garnered, public and private donations flooded in from all over the country, and on May 30, 1962 (Memorial Day), the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial was dedicated. This original purple ribbon from the event states in gold lettering "Official / Presley U.S.S. Arizona Benefit" and was made by Geo. Lauterer Corp. in Chicago, Illinois. This example belonged personally to Scotty Moore and emanates directly from the family of Scotty Moore. The ribbon measures 4 1/4 by 2 inches (10.79 x 5.08 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The ribbon is in excellent original condition.
