    Elvis Presley's Celebrity-Signed Custom Western Shirt. A red-and-white Western shirt custom-tailored for Presley by Western-wear designer Nathan Turk. It is believed to have been created for Elvis to wear on an episode of The Steve Allen Show, during a sketch featuring Presley, Steve Allen, and Andy Griffith, and later used in a promotion by RCA Records.
    It was autographed by a number of stars during 1958-60; signatures include Presley, Allen, Griffith, Turk, Colonel Tom Parker, Scotty Moore, Tex Ritter, Red Skelton, Raymond Burr, Betty White, Susan Hayward, James Mason, Red Foley, Fess Parker, Phil Silvers, Cesar Romero, Roy Rogers, Jack Webb, Jay Bernstein, prolific hit songwriter Aaron Schroeder (Elvis' "It's Now or Never", "Good Luck Charm", "Stuck On You", to name but a few), and others. It was later awarded to a fan through a promotion in Hush Hush magazine.
    The shirt features Elvis' name embroidered above the left breast pocket, as well as Turk's label in the collar. It is in Excellent condition. LOA from Joe Esposito and a copy of a 1997 auction catalog by Bonhams, where the shirt was first sold publicly.
