From the collection of “Rockin’” Robin Rosaaen.

Union Oil Company of California introduced its “76” brand of gasoline in 1932. Named after not only the octane level of the fuel at the time, but also after the 1776 Declaration of Independence, 76 became a common chain of filling stations. Even Elvis was a frequent customer as evidenced by his Union 76 gold credit card. The card bears the company’s round, bright-orange emblem; “Mr. Elvis Presley” is stamped in gold-colored lettering at the bottom left; and 1962 stamped in the lower right beneath “honoring an association since.” The card measures 2 1/8 by 3 3/8 inches (5.29 x 8.57 cm) and was offered as lot B79 in the 1999 Graceland Archives auction. The card is accompanied by a letter from this auction and a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 



The card is in Excellent, like-new condition.
