Popularity and value of Elvis Presley autographs
Elvis Presley remains one of the world’s most celebrated and successful recording artists, more than 30 years after his death. His groundbreaking career helped define the sound of modern rock and roll, a sound that has dominated the music scene ever since.
During his career Elvis, known by many simply as ‘The King’, released more than 200 recordings and starred in 31 feature films. To date he has sold more than 1 billion records, and his life and legacy are remembered by millions of devoted fans around the world.
Elvis Presley is also one of the most sought after names when it comes to music memorabilia and autographs. According to the industry’s PFC40 Autograph Index, the value of a signed Elvis Presley photograph has risen from £750 in 2000 to £3,250 in 2011, an increase of 333.3%.
For collectors looking to purchase Elvis Presley autographs, the most vital thing to consider is this: you should always buy autographs from a reputable dealer.
The market today is flooded with worthless forgeries, and whilst many are obvious fakes there are some that can be difficult to spot without knowledge and experience. Reputable dealers employ experts to research every item they offer, and provide detailed provenance.
It is also important to seek a dealer that offers a lifetime money-back guarantee, rather than a mere certificate of authenticity. If such a certificate is not backed up by a guarantee, it offers little or no recourse for customers and is relatively worthless.
The money-back guarantee offered by companies including Paul Fraser Collectibles means that collectors are entirely protected if an autograph turns out to not be genuine.
The majority of Elvis autographs obtained in person will feature his full name, signed on one line. Official documents are also highly sought after by collectors, but you should note that Presley often signed documents with his initials rather than his full name – ‘E.A Presley’.
