Description

    Elvis Presley Signed Humes High School Library Card (1948). It may be Elvis' earliest Memphis "autograph"! It's a Humes High School library card, signed in 1948 by the 13-year old future celebrity shortly after the Presley family moved to Memphis from Tupelo, Mississippi. The card was originally discovered by a Humes High School librarian while clearing some old books from inventory. The book was The Courageous Heart: A Life of Andrew Jackson for Young Readers (The Bobbs-Merrill Company, copyright 1934), a copy of which we've included here. As a bonus, also included are commemorative copies of two Humes High School Yearbooks, one from 1953 (Elvis' senior year), the other from 1957, which has a special full page photo of Elvis complete with stamped autograph and a dedication from the new (since 1953) superstar to his alma mater. The original copy of the 1953 yearbook belonged to one of Elvis' classmates who had Elvis' sign near his photo. Accompanied by a COA from Rick Consola.
