An important part of the Elvis Presley concert tour machine was providing fans with souvenirs of their idol. These souvenirs often doubled as marketing and promotional tools and took a variety of different forms including menus, photos, souvenir catalogs, tour schedules, record catalogs and much more. If Elvis’ name or likeness was on it, fans wanted it and the Colonel was more than happy to oblige. Offered is a collection of ten (10) different examples of these promotional, yet functional materials that includes:

  • Seasons Greetings Postcard, measuring 8 by 5 1/2 inches (20.32 x 13.97 cm);
