An essential way of promoting and advertising Elvis and his concert series was through the display and sales of concert posters. In true Colonel fashion, he employed the cost-effective measure of having marketing pieces do double duty, and concert posters were a prime example. They could be used for multiple venues and concert series as well as some being sold as souvenirs at the concerts themselves. An ideal example is the concert poster fondly referred to as “The Blue Boy.” Depicting Elvis in a soulful singing pose wearing his light “Blue Nail” jumpsuit, this All Star promotional poster’s image begs a comparison to Gainsborough’s famous “Blue Boy” painting, likely giving this iconic promotional poster its moniker. Most 1970s concert posters depicted Elvis singing in one of his iconic jumpsuits, a token any concert-going fan would want. Offered is a collection of four (4) concert posters including:

  • “The Blue Boy” poster, measuring 27 3/4 by 21 1/2 inches (70.48 x 54.61 cm); 
  • Poster of Elvis featured in the Peacock Jumpsuit, measuring 18 by 12 inches (45.72 x 30.48 cm);
  • Poster of Elvis featured in the White Pyramid jumpsuit, measuring 14 by 11 inches (35.56 x 27.94 cm); and 
  • Poster of Elvis featured in the American Eagle jumpsuit, stored folded in three, measuring 27 3/4 by 11 inches (70.48 x 27.94 cm.

Each of these All Star promotional posters has the printed Elvis signature in the lower left corner and the group is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 



The posters present with few if any defects. Near Mint condition overall, with some better.
