Recent auctions have proved Elvis Presley fans are willing to pay bushels of money for rare items. An auction in 1999 sold almost $5 million worth of Elvis memorabilia.
Every collector wants something touched by the King of Rock and Roll, making his autographs one of the most asked about collectibles.
Elvis was generous with his fans, autographing anything and everything put in front of him. He signed posters, programs, napkins and if you didn't have a piece of paper, he'd sign your hand, arm or any other body part you were willing to offer.
A plain Elvis concert program might bring $40 to $60, but 10 times that if autographed. Up to $600 is considered a base price for autographed photos and albums as well.
Various books about Elvis appeared while he was alive, but so far, no one has turned up one with an autograph. So dig through those bookshelves and look for The King.
