Lot 839: Vintage circa 1964 ballpoint signature and inscription, "To Susan, Elvis Presley," on an off-white 6.75 x 3.5 casino 'game credit record' card. Moderate scattered creases, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient's daughter, Susan, in part: "In 1964, my mother visited my aunt...and her uncle accompanied them to Las Vegas...My mother was at a slot machine and looked through to the other side and saw Elvis Presley across from her. (You need to picture this little 5´ lady). She scurried around the machines and told him that her daughter (me) was an ardent fan and could she have his autograph for me. She said he 'looked at me like, sure lady, for your daughter?' but asked my name and then signed the card to me." A nice signature with a charming Las Vegas backstory.
