    Elvis Presley Autographed Green Las Vegas Hilton Cloth Napkin in Elaborate Shadowbox Wall Display (1972). From 1969 until his death in 1977, Elvis appeared regularly at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, generally twice a year, for a total of more than 800 performances. On August 4, 1972, Elvis opened his one-month stint there during a very trying period in his life. He had recently separated from his wife, Priscilla, and their marriage was doomed. Still, the show must go on and, once again, he broke his own Vegas attendance records. On one of those August evenings, Elvis signed this linen table napkin for a lucky fan, "Thank you, Elvis Presley". She has written out the story of the meeting in longhand which is included in this lot. It reads, in part: "I was in Las Vegas with my girlfriend in August of 1972. We were sitting in front row, before the end of the concert, one of Elvis' bodyguards/ publicist type people asked us (and a few other women) to come back stage after the concert. We were escorted back to a room where we all sat for about 15 minutes. Then ELVIS walked in. He was gorgeous, polite & very nice! We thanked him for the great concert and he signed autographs for all of us. Mine was on this green hotel napkin that I took from my table... I will never forget it!" The napkin has been beautifully double matted with various Vegas performance photos to an overall 22.75" x 29.75" x 1.5". Excellent condition and ready to hang on your wall. If you're the lucky bidder, you may want to start practicing telling the story about the night you met Elvis. COA from Rich Consola.. THIRD PARTY SHIPPING REQUIRED.
