This latest collectible release is also loaded with more value than ever with two “hits” per hobby box. Hits include autographs from some of Elvis’ most renowned former costars and bandmates, artist proof autographed versions of three of Kalinsky’s newly discovered Elvis photos, “Master Pieces” memorabilia cards featuring pieces of actual Elvis-worn clothes, rare Elvis Artifact cards that include a signature from Colonel Tom Parker taken from a confidential RCA agreement and authentic Elvis signatures taken from a variety of unique documents including a weekend Army pass and a confidential RCA agreement.
“We are also pleased to announce that for the first time ever, rare artist sketch cards of Elvis Presley will be randomly inserted in product,” said Jesse Leadbetter, product manager for the Elvis brand. “We were lucky enough to have renowned Elvis artist Joe Petruccio hand-sketch these Mini Masterpieces for us.”
Each unique piece features the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in stunning artistic form. Preview images of three of the four styles of hand-sketched original artwork from Petruccio can be found on Press Pass’ website, www.PressPassInc.com. The fourth, and perhaps most stunning piece, can be found on Press Pass’ new blog site, PressPassCards.blogspot.com.
