On any Elvis fan’s must-have list would have been this 1956 pinkish-tan scrapbook, which bears a centered image of Elvis singing and playing guitar while standing on a record, plus images of two hearts, a hound dog and silhouette of the same Elvis image in circular discs to the left. The front cover is marked in raised black letters “Elvis Presley Scrap Book” and the interior is filled with treasured mementos gathered lovingly by a young fan. That young fan that created this scrapbook was not just any girl, but Sandi Pichon, the brave 11-year-old who in 1956 knocked on Elvis’ back door, starting a long friendship that would have Sandi attending over 150 Elvis concerts and being accepted as a friend in Elvis’ inner circle. Sandi later wrote a book about how Elvis changed her life entitled Raised on ELVIS! ELVIS! ELVIS! This treasured time capsule contains pages and pages of ephemera including period photographs, sheet music, newspaper clippings, fan club materials, fan letters, magazine articles, ads and much more. This special scrapbook measures 15 by 12 by 1 1/4 inches (38.1 x 30.48 x 3.17 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The cover of the scrapbook is detached, pages have some loss and are fragile and brittle from age, but still mainly intact.
1956 “Elvis Presley” Scrapbook from the Sandi Pichon Collection – Including Period Photographs, Promotional Pieces and Newspaper Clippings
