In 1976, Elvis started his sole business investment venture, Presley’s Center Courts Racquetball Club, in Memphis. Land was purchased, construction plans were organized, bank accounts were opened, memberships were offered, business cards were printed and bills started to be charged to Elvis. It was not long before the venture began mounting large debts and encountering issues, hurdles that could not be overcome and eventually resulted in the project’s demise. After opening in April 1976, the courts were closed later that same summer. Offered is one of the few reminders of Elvis’ foray into private business. This business card was printed for Elvis on ivory card stock adorned with a gold-embossed “TCB” logo in the upper right corner, the Presley’s Center Courts logo with four racquetball racquets in the upper left and “Chairman of the Board” listed as his title. A fateful reminder of Elvis’ only fizzled endeavor. The business card measures 2 by 3 1/2 inches (5.08 x 8.89 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The card is in excellent condition overall with creases and corner wear on the right side and black residue in the left half quadrant of the reverse.
