    Elvis Presley Historic Telegram from Las Vegas International Hotel (December 19, 1969). After his phenomenal early recording success of the '50s came the Hollywood years of the '60s, when the King's performances were less musical and more movie intensive. Then there was the triumphant "comeback" concert of 1968, setting the stage for the record-breaking live performances in Las Vegas beginning in 1969. Here's the original telegram from Alex J. Shoofey, Executive Vice President of Las Vegas International Hotel, to Colonel Tom Parker accepting the terms Parker had drawn up for Elvis to perform for an initial 29 day period. Over the ensuing years, Elvis performed over 800 times in Las Vegas! Included with the telegram, in a 13" x 22.75" matted display is Shoofey's letter dated January 17, 1969 confirming the arrangement and verifying the first date of the engagement as September 11, 1969.
