An intact sheet of playing cards featuring the last 54 pictures of Elvis taken in Vegas. As described by the seller, "This is my most precious possession and since I am now finally retiring, I must sell if to down size. Many years ago, when the first Elvis Presley playing cards featuring the King were printed, the last 54 pictures of Elvis Presley taken in Vegas were reproduced as the "faces" on his playing cards, as you can see on the attached photos. These were printed on huge triple-ply playing card stock, which after printing cut to make the cards. These sheets were 23-1/" v 23-3/4" - which is very large.
When the printer went out of business I acquired one of these sheets. The others were burned, destroyed. This sheet is now a piece of history. So rare in fact that will not ship it in its frame for fear of exposing it to possible damage. Beautifully framed, it belongs in an Elvis museum somewhere or possibly in a first class casino, or even the card playing room of a mansion."
The asking price is around $1,600. For more details click here.
