Elvis was known to use scarves during his concert performances in the 1970s. The gesture was so favored among fans that the Colonel capitalized on it by creating and selling souvenir scarves with a printed Elvis signature at the shows. The original scarves for the concerts were obtained from Mr. Guy’s, but as Elvis’ trend of tossing them to the audience grew in popularity, the Colonel had pre-printed scarves bearing an Elvis Presley facsimile signature made specifically for this purpose. Not only were these souvenir scarves sold during the concert, but it was not uncommon for Charlie or one of the crew to grab some of these souvenir scarves to hand to Elvis during a performance, as he would continuously wipe his brow and toss the scarf into the audience. Offered are two unused concert scarves, each with a printed Elvis Presley signature, that represent prime examples of the Colonel’s clever merchandising prowess. This particular pair emanates from Elvis' Nurse Letetia “Tish” Henley who lived at Graceland for many years. Each scarf contains a blue printed signature in the lower corner with one scarf white in color and the other blue. The scarves each measure 34 by 34 inches (86.4 x 86.4 cm) and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



Scarves have crease marks typical from folding. White scarf has slight area of discoloration in center and at corner.
Two Elvis Presley Concert Scarves, One White and One Blue, with Facsimile Signature, Given to Elvis’ Nurse Letetia “Tish” Henley
