ElvisRecords.us wrote this about this tour book. Is it true?
"According to ElvisUnique.com, this Tour Photo Album is the rarest of all tour books. It was only available for sale at Elvis' Saturday matinee performance at New York's Madison Square Garden."
Can anybody confirm that?

Nope, I think these were sold during 1972, and not limited for 1 concert only.

The one with the star around Elvis I believe is from 1975.

But you still did a bargain :D

8) No its not the same.I have the vol.1 50 worldwide gold hits and I got it on e-bay for a great price including the "rare" booklet for about 20 dollars(+?) including shipping and Elvis Unique says it is a very collectible booklet)(It has some really awesome pics!) And the records are pretty near mint by the looks of them!!!!! 8) :smt006 8)

Paid $5 each, all are in amazing condition.
Hi the "Cisco" tour photo album also sold in Vegas (see pic with the kids) and on Tour.
The "Blue star" photo album also sold in "red" with three Different pages inside.

Glad to have found this thread. I had a difficult time identifying the book and was surprised to only have found it with any information on one site. I figured if enough people know of this tour book that someone would have more information on it. This forum never disappoints me there. I will update my site to include some of these observations. Thank you.

Hey there ElvisRecords. I enjoy your site and use it often. You put alot of work into that thing!
I appreciate your comments. I try. Originally, the concept was for me to maintain my collection online so that I will always have it available to me whenever I am looking for a piece to fill in the blanks of my collection. Then the concept evolved. Now, I want to offer an online resource where collectors can contribute, research, or browse. A twist, however, is I am focusing attention to detail where others have either found to be negligible or not at all. An example, today, I discovered two more slight variations in the relatively common Burning Love single. Looking forward to getting those pics online as soon as I get the singles.

Just confirming again, it was sold during the April tour(EOT) of 1972. I bought this one along with another but I think they were more than $2, but it's been a long time.

I love these photo albums! I have the one from 1970 with the yellow cover and the photo of Elvis from the Suspicious Minds single, and this one from 1972. My favorite items other than the music in my collection.

Wow! I had no idea!
Were they all from 1970?

Oh yeah, I also have the one that was intended for the tour that never happened, the one in the gold box.
Your collection is gorgeous!!

Yes all the same pics apart from the "Elvis 1970 in Person" ad and this one with the ad for the Worldwide 50 Gold box set that is on the inside back cover of the photo album that has $1 on the front......also one of the photo albums does not include the pre-print Elvis Presley signature ......(see last pic)

You are right on the $money$ VEGAS . . . .
file-5.php.jpeg
The above was used for the final tour and . . .
file-6.php.jpeg
The Gold Box Album was extra stock from the tour that never was and was sold posthumously as a special collectors item (with COA from Vernon).

I got both of the above when I was a kid, shortly after EP's passing. Those pieces really made me happy and I still have them.

They are not extremely rare (Lichter over-hypes everything), but are quite nice original memorabilia pieces.

I enjoyed this thread; my thanks.
