Elvis was in top form, in good health and high spirits as he began his holiday celebration on December 2, 1975, when his Pre-Holiday Jubilee opened in the showroom of the Las Vegas Hilton, where the occupancy was at 100% during the sold-out engagement dates. Elvis’ shows were so popular that during his tenure in Vegas he performed well over 500 consecutive sold-out shows, with the holiday celebrations being exceptionally joyous events and a wonderful way to ring in the holidays. Offered is a complete souvenir opening night package that was provided to guests with compliments from the Las Vegas Hilton. The paper packaging, advertising the show dates of December 2 thru 15, 1975 on the front in bold green letters, was full of promotional treasures including: 

  • Souvenir package envelope/bag measuring 11 3/4 by 11 1/2 inches (29.84 x 29.21 cm);
  • Summer Festival Souvenir Menu 1975 measuring 11 by 11 inches (27.94 x 27.94 cm);
  • Summer Festival 1975 Las Vegas Hilton Souvenir Tour Photo with concert map on the reverse, measuring 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm);
  • Summer Festival 1975 Hilton postcard, measuring 5 by 7 inches (12.7 x 17.78 cm);
  • Christmas postcard measuring 7 by 5 inches (17.78 x 12.7 cm);
  • 1976 Elvis Pocket Calendar Card measuring 4 by 2 1/4 inches (10.16 x 5.71 cm);
  • Concert poster, stored folded in half and measuring 17 by 12 inches (43.18 x 30.48 cm); 
  • Small concert promotional image measuring 10 by 8 inches (25.4 x 20.32 cm);
  • Special Photo Folio Pocket Edition measuring 5 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches (14.60 x 14.60 cm); and 
  • Small Elvis promotional poster with Teddy Bear reverse, measures 12 by 7 inches (30.48 x 17.78 cm).

These packages were sold for $3.00 during the subsequent shows of the concert series with the outer envelope changing to reflect the price, but the interior contents remaining virtually the same. This complete souvenir package from Elvis’ 1975 Las Vegas holiday concert series contains ten (10) pieces (including the paper container) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The collection is in excellent condition overall with several pieces exhibiting heavier signs of wear that includes the posters, pocket folio and promotional picture. The larger of the two posters is heavily creased horizontally.
