Nice find. From the auction page:

Elvis Presley Autographed Loving You EP and Photo Display. Buddy Ochoa, the original Elvis tribute artist, became friends with the legend in 1958 after Elvis learned of Buddy's inaugural performance as "Elvis" in Dallas. A few years later, as a memento, Buddy created this display which included a photo of the two together in 1958, a signed copy of the Loving You Vol. II EP (on the back) paired with a copy of Loving You Vol 1 (unsigned, with front displayed), and a Blue Hawaii motif pairing: a copy of the Blue Hawaii LP with a shirt (by Avanti) similar to the one Elvis is wearing on the album cover. Of particular interest is that Elvis signed the Loving You cover twice! Both times he signed "To Buddy Elvis Presley". All five items have been attractively framed to an overall 19.75" x 36". REQUIRES THIRD PARTY SHIPPING Estimate: $2,000 - up.

Having never heard of Buddy Ochoa, the best I could find is he was a bit player in TV roles in the '60s and '70s, and seems to indeed have an ETA history ...

Here's that autographed EP, and the candid, slightly larger:

Since there seems to be interest in the "unknown" Buddy Ochoa, below are more details on him, his cheerleading days and early ETA status at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, and his nondescript, bit actor history going back to 1960 (mostly on TV):

Buddy Ochoa (NCA Staff 1957-59) Movie (The Alamo with John Wayne) and TV actor,. Screenwriter, and Model for Winston Man, Harley Motorcycles. Acknowledged as “the Original Elvis Presley Impersonator”. Currently writing memoir of meeting Elvis after impersonating him at SMU Cheer Camp in 1958.
