In celebration of Elvis’ engagement in Vegas from December 1976, I am offering an extremely rare Happy Birthday Elvis poster that hung in Vegas during his last engagement. It was not uncommon for Vegas to recognize people’s birthdays during Elvis’ performance and add a ‘Happy Birthday’ banner on an Elvis concert poster. For instance with Barron Hilton, there was a banner that hung for him as seen in the pictures in this auction. These posters and banners are not for sale but just for a demonstration.
After consulting with some of the experts at Graceland, they confirmed that there were three different colors of banners that were attached to Elvis concert posters that hung at the Hilton. One was white with blue writing, one was blue with blue letter writing as seen in the auction photos but not for sale, and one was orange with blue letter writing.
You are bidding on this rare Las Vegas Hilton poster with a banner that hung up to not celebrate Barron Hilton’s birthday, but rather to recognize Elvis’ 42nd birthday that upcoming year. Since he would not be performing there in January 1977, the Hilton made special banners for his birthday to celebrate during what would be his last engagement in Vegas.
The other cool fact about this poster is that it comes out of the famous movie actress Debbie Reynolds’s personal collection! When I got this poster from her auction, I won several other posters to go with this poster. Because of those other posters, I am keeping the original copy of the certificate of authenticity for those posters but will include a copy of the certificate of authenticity for the winning bidder of this Vegas poster and banner.
This is the Boxcar poster that was used in the later years of Elvis’ career with the most requested poster on Elvis’ tour which was the Blue boy Poster.
This is the original poster Debbie Reynolds received and had in her collection and was kept in this condition.
In regards to the condition of the poster, you will see has some light marks going around the poster. On the top there is a small tear that has been repaired above Elvis’ head as seen with tape on the back of it. This has been done so well that the pieces match up perfectly. There is also a small fold repaired in the top left corner and small mark above his left shoulder. Still considering how old it is and being taken off the wall at the Hilton, it is in really nice condition. I have kept it framed since I won these items.
Dimensions of the poster are 22″x28.”
Buyer pays for shipping, handling and insurance. Once Elvis leaves the building it is the responsibility of the buyer. If you would like to select shipping via other services with tracking # please request and I will calculate final total.
