Help needed on authenticity and price of a concert ticket

Sat Sep 17, 2005 10:08 am

Can anyone tell me is this concert ticket for 21 August 1977 for real. What would be the value if it is? Thanks.

Looks real from the front, would need to see the back too. Also check the tour schedule and make sure he was actually booked there that day. A lot of fake tickets in the market have wrong dates and wrong venues.

Personally, I would not pay over $150 for a real ticket. But you could make a nice display piece of it and a photo from some time in 1977 of him in the Atzec jumpsuit, very likely he would have worn it during this tour too.

I did one for the concert I attended in 1976 in Cincinnati.

Good Luck!

Did You attended the first or second show of Cincinnati? Did you have any pictures of the concert?
I have a scarf, newspaper reviews, a stub and 6 pictures of the first show. I framed the scarf and the stub with a 77 picture of him wearing a scarf and it reallys looks amazing

I was at both shows, I too have a scarf that my aunt got and we have some photos, I got some from a guy in Dayton, Oh too who took several rolls.

Do you have the cartoon that Jim Borgman drew of Elvis that was in the Cincinnati Enquirer? I had that for years and lost it but I contacted Jim and he sent me a copy. It was the one Elvis saw in the newspaper and made a comment during the show.

Thanks for you answer. According to the book Elvis From A to Z the date is correct.

Here's a photo of the back.

Notice the words REFUNDED. Looks real. Offer $25 - $50. (If you want it as a keepsake piece, I doubt the value will ever be much more than that but who knows anymore.)

Collect what interests you, pay only what you personally feel you can afford for an item. Advice from other collectors to me early on.

Yep that is it, and you were correct I went and dug it up it was Jerry instead of Jim Borgman. I always thought that was funny since MMM's always tried to keep bad press away from him and yet he saw and even mentioned it in the show. Did you live in Cincinnati?

Marko,

Can you tell me where you can buy this one. I'm born on August 21 1977, so this would be a nice add to my collection.
