52 Year Old Contract For Sale

An auction of rock memorabilia to benefit the Music Rising charity, features several Elvis items including a Memphis Federation of Musicians contract from 1955, a signed silk scarf, a concert ticket and thirty-six black and white original negatives from a 1972 Honolulu concert. The contract is for Elvis’ performance at the B&B Club in Gobler, Missouri on April 8, 1955. It’s signed by Elvis in green ink, but its possible that this is Bob Neal’s penmanship. According to the contract, Elvis, Scotty, Bill and DJ would receive 75% of the admission money, but had to supply their own window cards announcing their appearance. The thirty-six black and white original negatives from a 1972 Honolulu concert, look very appealing with Elvis wearing his black Conquistador jumpsuit. Included with negatives are eight, 8 ½ x 11” black and white prints and eight, 4 x 6” black and white prints of the negatives. Also in the collection is a red silk scarf is signed Sincerely Elvis, and a concert ticket from September 1977, so the date makes that less desirable. It’s also framed with a picture from the ’68 Special, which was nine years previous to that date. The Hawaii photos and contract are certainly appealing though and highlights from the exhibition will be touring during April. We have yet to receive confirmation that the Elvis items will be included in this tour, but the dates are: Los Angeles The Beverly Hilton 9876 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90210 Exhibition: Monday, March 26–Thurs., March 29 Dublin The Clarence Hotel 6-8 Wellington Quay, Dublin 2 Ireland Exhibition: Tuesday, April 3rd – Friday April 6th London The Hard Rock 150 Old Park Lane, London, W1K 1QZ, England Exhibition: April 11th – Friday April 13th New York The Hard Rock 1501 Broadway, New York, NY 10036 Exhibition: Monday, April 16th – Friday April 20th AUCTION DATE New York: Hard Rock 1501 Broadway, New York, NY 10036 Special Performance: Saturday, April 21st. 5:00 p.m. EST Live Auction: 6:00 p.m. EST Special Performance: 9:00 p.m. EST
