Elvis redefined what it meant to play Las Vegas once he hit the stage at the International Hotel on July 31, 1969. After nearly a decade of focusing on movies, he came back with a vengeance, and between 1969 and 1976 performed more than 600 sold-out shows. The International Hotel recognized the selling power of the super star and placed his image on every conceivable item, including the dinner menus, which have become one of the most popular artifacts from the era among collectors. The menus varied in size and style throughout the period. Offered is a signed and inscribed menu from the 1970 International Hotel, August 10 - September 8 shows with Elvis gazing towards the heavens as he is showering his audience with melodic tunes. This fine example is signed and inscribed, “To Sadie and Henry with Love and Respect Elvis Presley” on the menu’s cover. There is a large selection of adult beverages on the interior left page beneath a pink “Summer Festival” banner. The back sports a full-color advertisement for Elvis’ box set Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits, Vol. I. One of the most sought-after menus, this exemplar is even more desirable with the touching, strong and bold inscription on the front. The menu measures 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm) and is accompanied by a letter from Rich Consola as well as a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The menu presents with several small areas of paper loss along the right edge and moderate age-related toning, especially along the bottom edge. Excellent condition.
