Lot 834: Vintage circa 1956 ballpoint signature, "Yours, Elvis Presley," on an off-white 3 x 2.75 slip torn from a check. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, overall creases, and light soiling. The consignor writes that she visited a friend Memphis in 1956 to see Elvis perform at a fair. Her friend's aunt knew where he lived and brought them to his house, where they met him and each got a kiss on the cheek. Not having any paper to write on, the aunt ripped a check in half so that each of them could get Presley's autograph. A nice story from Elvis's days as a nationwide heartthrob.
