Promotional photos were shot of Elvis throughout his career, beginning with the more famous William Speer images. The photos were often printed with an Elvis signature and stamped on the back with names of specific Elvis movies. Promotional photos were used for a plethora of advertising, including on posters, merchandising, fan giveaways, record sleeves, and much more. The offered set of three, used during 1959 and 1960 to promote films, albums, merchandising and the rising star in all forms of publications, are rarely seen in this clean condition. While these were often stamped on the back to promote Elvis’ films, the offered group are perfectly clean and have been very well preserved. One is an image depicting Elvis in a striped shirt is from a 1959 publicity shoot, and two from a general publicity shoot in 1960 which includes one of Elvis leaning on his knee and a smiling, smirking Elvis. These early promotional photos each measure 7 by 5 inches (17.78 x 12.7 cm) and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The photos are in pristine, Near Mint to Mint condition, with one exhibiting minuscule scratches down the edge.
1959-1961 Set of Three Elvis Presley 5 x 7 Promotional Photos
