    Courtesy of the Chicago Public Library Tumblr, this is the library card signed by Elvis Presley in 1948, when the rock icon was only 13 years old. Because it’s believed to be the earliest known signature of the King, the autograph fetched $7,500 at auction last summer, more than twice the original asking price. As for what was young Elvis reading, you’re wondering? It’s The Courageous Heart: A Life of Andrew Jackson for Young Readers. h/t @kirstinbutler

    In 1948, when Elvis Presley was just 13 years old, he checked out a copy of The Courageous Heart: A Life of Andrew Jackson out from his school library in Memphis, Tennessee. The card was found by a librarian going through some discards, and will be up for public auction this August. Starting bid? Around 4,000.00.

Those words truly will go down in history. If you have ever been to an Elvis concert those words probably ring still in your memory bank. What a special man was our Elvis.

Radiant Elvis. (This is a man, little girls. Pay attention).

My mother while attending Stephens College got to dance with Elvis. He and his buddies were on their last night out before shipping out to serve their country. He was just starting in the music field before the war, so he wasn't that well known at the time..My mother said the men could pick the young lady of their choosing to dance with, Elvis walked straight over to my mother....god I'm so jealous

Elvis Presley...classically handsome, phenominal charisma

“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ‘em all together, I guess.” -Elvis in 1956, talking about his way of moving on stage.
