From the Collection of Greg Page. One of the earliest known Elvis Presley signatures on a library card from Tupelo, Mississippi. This signed library card was found by the librarian at the school which Elvis attended in Tupelo. Once the librarian realized Elvis’ fame, she searched through all of the books borrowed from the library by Elvis to find his signature, two cards were discovered, with the second, in a private collection, from two days earlier than the offered card. A third known library card from Memphis is from his 8th grade year. This example, from his 7th grade year, is accompanied by a letter from the archives of Graceland stating that the archives has no full Elvis Presley signature pre-dating the one appearing on the offered library card. The only earlier signature of Elvis contained in the Graceland archives is a scrawling of "Elvis" on a crayon box from when Elvis was in 1st grade. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The library card measures approximately 4 3/4 by 3 inches (12 cm x 7.5 cm).
