Weird Elvis News From the 1950s



I recently bought a vintage fan made scrapbook that has a lot of interesting news clippings. I though that I would share a couple of them. One is a report of a boy who was electrocuted while bring to hang Elvis in effigy. The other is a story of a man who was arrested for trying to punch Elvis because his wife was carrying a picture of Elvis in her wallet.

1956 EPE Lipstick and Statuette Advertising Flyer

This flyer was issued in 1956 by Official Star Souvenirs to advertise the availability of Elvis Presley Lipstick and the Bronzed Statuette. (The “Bronzed Statuette” is actually made of plastic.)

I have the Bronzed Statue in my collection. A few years ago I found an original shipping box of the lipsticks in different shades still on the display cards. I also have the color chart showing the different shades of lipstick.

1956 Elvis Presley Topps Salesman Sample

This combined three card panel was used by Topps in 1956 to advertise their Elvis Presley card set to dealers. The opposite side contains the images from three of the cards in the set. This was originally a one piece item. This example was cut in three pieces.

I recently added this to my collection after a lengthy search.
