    Elvis Presley Autographed Summer Festival Marquee (1971). This promotional poster, printed on cardboard for Elvis' 1971 "Summer Festival" series of shows in Las Vegas, has an interesting story to go along with it. It came from Amy Buttons, daughter of beloved TV and movie personality, Red Buttons, who wrote, in a letter dated 8-26-07: "I was with my father, Red Buttons in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1971. I was 4 ½ years old. My father was talking to Elvis Presley. Mr. Presley picked me up and I threw up on him. He gave me this Marquee. He signed it 'to Amy, Love Elvis Presley.'" The signature is in black marker, which has faded somewhat, but still very legible against the white jumpsuit. The item measures approximately 22" x 37", matted and Plexiglas framed to an overall size of 26.25" x 41". The marquee is in VG+ condition, and includes the original letter from Amy Buttons. Requires third party shipping.

    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!
