*From the Darline Cleary Elvis Presley Collection. 

The offered hanging advertisement promotes Elvis’ album Promised Land on one side and promotes earlier albums on the reverse. “Promised Land” was first recorded by Chuck Berry in 1965 and then by Elvis in December of 1973 in the Stax Records studio in Memphis. This title track was first released as a single in September 1974 and after chart success, an album with 10 tracks was released on January 8, 1975, Elvis’ 40th birthday. The graphic motif is true ’70s—the four lobes of the hanging advertisement are edged in blue, green and yellow on both sides, with bold black lettering shouting “Elvis! Elvis! Elvis” above images of Elvis singing in his American eagle jumpsuit with red lei adorning his neck that flank the album or albums (depending on the side) in the center. The front markets the Promised Land album and the reverse promotes Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite, Elvis Recorded Live on Stage in Memphis, and Having Fun With Elvis on Stage as also available from RCA Records and Tapes. This hanging record store promotional sign measures 17 7/8 by 23 13/16 inches and presents with only very minor edge wear to the cardboard, but bold color. Excellent to Mint condition.

The Darline Cleary Elvis Presley Collection

Rockhurst Auctions is proud to present the second offering from the Darline Cleary Elvis Presley collection, which includes movie posters, record store displays, vintage concert memorabilia and other choice items to be offered in our next several auctions.

Darline was a sweet, caring, and generous woman who always put the needs of others before her own. She was genuine and kind with a soft, quiet, humble style always there to listen, offer a hug, give encouraging words of support, and enjoy time with family. With husband Jim of 69 years, she was the proud mom of 6 children and the loving grandma of 11 grandkids and 2 great grandkids. She enjoyed family gatherings and, most of all, spending time with her loved ones. Her appreciation of the precious joys in life was truly special. 

Darline was a true Elvis fan and friend who appreciated, respected, and admired the giving and caring qualities of the man Elvis was and the millions of lives he touched around the world. She enjoyed watching his captivating concert performances, listening to his wide range of music from soft ballads to uplifting high energy songs to inspirational Gospel. The happiest of her memories was seeing Elvis perform in Chicago twice, traveling several times to Memphis to visit Graceland, looking at all the beautiful flowers, reading messages written on the wall, sitting in the Meditation Garden and talking with Elvis friends. Those were special times to enjoy the strong bond that brought them all together. 

In March of 2021, with her family by her side, she peacefully passed away. On behalf of her family, the proceeds of her personal collection of Elvis treasures will be going to charitable organizations, families, patients, and children in need including St. Jude's Hospital. In her memory, we hope others can share in the happiness and appreciation she cherished through the love of Elvis' music, the incredible gifts he gave the world, the memories made and those yet to come.
