    Description

    RCA Camden Records Contract - Signed by Colonel Tom Parker (1970). Easily the most unusual contract in Elvis' career, this five-page handwritten contract in black Sharpie on giant parchment sheets (approximately 14" x 17" each) is the original binding contract between Elvis and the Colonel (dba All Star Shows) and RCA Victor to issue a series of albums on their subsidiary Camden label. It's dated June 29, 1970 and signed: "Colonel and Elvis Presley All Star [Shows]" and "Harry Jenkins for RCA Victor."
    Rather than being taken back to the office and replaced with a traditional typewritten agreement, this document became the official Camden contract, and is even accompanied by a handwritten note "From the Desk of Tom Diskin" (Colonel Parker's assistant) with the instruction to his secretary: "Mary, put this with the Colonel's personal contract records."
    This unique artifact provides fascinating insight into the Colonel's shrewd, thorough, and effective ability to look after his client in a shoot-from-the-hip, extemporaneous setting. COAs from the Elvis Presley Estate at Graceland and Rick Consola.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
