Elvis Presley’s Signed Library Check-Out Card
A library card bearing the signature of a 13-year-old Elvis Presley was sold at auction for $7,500, doubling estimates. The autograph is believed to be the earliest signature of the King of Rock and Roll.
The auctioneers did not expect much from the library card signed to borrow a copy of “The Courageous Heart: A Life of Andrew Jackson for Young Readers” from Humes High School in Memphis in 1948.
The card was discovered during a library inventory in the book about US President Andrew Jackson, one of the founders of the Democratic Party. The book was sold at auction along with the autograph.
