RARE AUTHENTIC Elvis Presley
Autographed 8x10 Signed Photo
For all you Elvis Presley fans out there, here is a RARE OPPORTUNITY to own an AUTHENTICALLY Signed Photo of Elvis Presley from arguably the most extensive and knowledgeable Elvis Collection in History. Regency-Superior, a leading auctioneer of fine collectibles, in 2004 offered one of the largest, privately held collections of Elvis Presley memorabilia ever to hit the market – almost $2 million worth! We were fortunately enough to acquire two RARE pieces from that collection.
In the early 1970's Jim Curtin had a custom made guitar for Elvis and presented it to him during one of his visits with Elvis in Graceland. Elvis was said to have used the guitar in at least one of his shows and it stayed with Elvis until his death. This larger 11x14" color photo of the Guitar with Elvis's name on it is Signed by Elvis reads: "To Jimmy Thank You Sincerely Elvis Presley"
This is the personal collection of Mr. Jim ‘E’ Curtin III, a lifelong Elvis fan and personal friend. Jim Curtin is one of the leading authorities on Elvis Presley and the largest collector of Elvis memorabilia in the world today. Jim Curtin’s knowledge, expertise, and devotion to the king makes him a living museum, of the life and legend surrounding rock-n-roll's single and most significant figure.
Jim Curtin was also personal friends with the late and great entertainer from 1970 up until his untimely end in August 1977. He is the only person in the world to have received one of Elvis's trademark stage jumpsuits from Elvis himself as a token of his feelings and friendship for Jim back in 1975.In 25 years of collecting autographs and Hollywood memorabilia this may be the most solid, extensive provenance we have ever acquired with items we’ve purchased. And, at a time when Elvis autographs are HEAVILY forged , particularly on the Un-policed Internet Auction sites, this may be an extraordinarily RARE chance to own a REAL Elvis Presley signed photo. Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Jim Curtin. NOT, from a company that analyzes and makes an evaluation on signatures, BUT from the guy who OBTAINED THEM IN-PERSON!! From his PERSONAL FRIEND, Elvis Presley! As a matter of fact, because MOST Elvis Presley autographs are forged (about 99.5% on the market including Ebay) these are the first Elvis Presley autographs we have decided to acquire and sell.
We could go on and on about this amazing collection. But, read CNN's report for yourself, http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/01/08/elvis.auction.ap/
