I'd like to know where they got a copy of this

Someone on eBay is selling copies of Elvis' first contract. I only know of one xeroxed copy and from my understanding the original is almost illegible now. I wonder if they blew up the copy printed in Scotty's book (or was it Guralnicks), enhanced and reformatted it.

Looks to me like a really crappy cut and paste job using the pic is Scotty's great book. That ridiculous border and the great big ELVIS Personal management Contract look idiotic and were obviously added to the original document. What some folks won't try to sell.

I asked the seller where they got the copy of the contract. They didn't say but rather told me that they "legally have a written agreement to sell this contract in a contractual agreement with the family of Elvis".

What a crock :lol:

Ain't that the truth. Its funny though, there latest reply was "We have permission from Dee Presley, in a contract agreement made several years ago as friends of the family. We have a copy of the contract in our files."

They still haven't answered where they got the copy though

Here's what I got from the seller:

We have permission from Dee Presley, in a contract agreement made several years ago as friends of the family. We have a copy of the contract in our files.

:roll:
