    Description

    Elvis Presley 1973 Summer Tour RCA Promotional Poster. An original RCA Records Tours promotional poster used to advertise Elvis's entire 1973 summer concert tour, listing all of the cities, venues and dates for the tour plus the Elvis Summer Festival at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. The poster carries an unusual line at the bottom: "This advertising is not intended to sell tickets - only to let our friends know where we are." Poster was printed on thin paper, measures 14" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: Graceland sold one of these at auction five years ago and realized $1,000. They speculated that this may have been intended as a proof that the Colonel and Elvis were planning to run as an ad promoting the concert tour.

    Graceland added that these posters were offered for sale to members of the Elvis Presley Enterprises affinity club, The Official Elvis Collectors Club, and a precursor to the current Graceland Insiders fan group.

    Condition details: Poster has one pronounced horizontal crease in the blank area above, another light-to-medium one through "Mobile, Alabama" and the lightest one of all through the Hilton logo. There's also a long horizontal crease along the poster's bottom, slightly above the edge. As for toning, that's a little difficult to determine but the poster definitely wasn't printed on white paper, more like a newsprint color and then some toning has set in around the edges.
