    Description

    Elvis Signed Check with Receipt. Included is a check dated March 26, 1960, for the sum of $257.50 made payable to Ace Formal Wear of Miami, plus a receipt from the aforementioned business with the same date, for the purchase of one tuxedo and rental of three others for the sum of $206. (The memo on the back of the check lists one purchased and four rented tuxedos; apparently Elvis decided to add one more to his order at the last minute.) Both items have notations explaining that the tuxes were for a television special with Frank Sinatra, specifically Frank Sinatra's Welcome Home Party for Elvis Presley, a variety show featuring the Rat Pack and others that welcomed Elvis home after his U.S. Army tour of duty in Germany concluded. He had arrived back in the States about two weeks prior to taping the show, and was paid a (then) whopping $125,000 for only a few minutes of screen time. The Items are in Very Fine condition with a little bit of wear and toning. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
