Offered is a 1958 postcard signed by Elvis Presley. Presley signed the postcard for a fellow soldier during his time in basic training at the U.S. Army Base at Ford Hood, Texas. A "Modern Type Barracks" at Fort Hood are shown on the front of the postcard, while Elvis has signed boldly on the reverse. The postcard came from the estate of a soldier that served at Fort Hood with Elvis, and a copy of a handwritten note from his wife's family accompanies. The note reads "These photos, clippings and post card were handed down to us by my step mother from her late husband. Joan Perkins and Brian Perkins. Brian served with Elvis and that is how he got these items. Brian said he was a humble and kind man, very funny and upbeat. That that was one of his favorite people and buddie from that era of his life." The photographs and newspaper clippings, as well as the original note, referenced in the letter are available as the next lot in this auction. The bold, blue pen signature by Elvis is a near-perfect example of his 1958 signature. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Beckett Authentic. The postcard measures 3 x 5 inches and presents with two heavy folds, though remains intact. Very Good to Excellent condition.
