Elvis Presley Arrest Warrant

This is a genuine document. A 1974 arrest warrant issued to Elvis Presley by the city of Los Angeles. The warrant stemmed from a failure by Elvis to appear in court regarding his vehicle being parked in a red no parking zone at the Los Angeles International Airport. The original citation was issued December 18, 1974. Elvis' bail was set at $20. The warrant is accompanied by a typed note from Mary Sholty at the office of Elvis Presley's attorneys, Hookstratten & Irwin. That note is dated July 30, 1975, and reads in part, 'We were able to reduce the bail from $20.00 to $5.00 – so it's been taken care of… '. Additionally below the image is a certificate of authenticity from Elvis Presley Enterprises, Graceland.

The King and I (with a Saxophone)

Del Puschert's most prized possessions are two scraps of fabric, each about six inches long and frayed at the edges. One is lavender-colored cotton with faint white lines forming a rectangular pattern; the other is black wool with thin pinstripes and a zipper attached. At first glance, they're nothing special. In fact, if they weren't framed together and hung on the wall of Puschert's Annapolis home, you'd pay them no mind. Puschert stands before the scraps like a pilgrim in the presence of a reliquary. 'There they are', he says, dialing back his boisterous voice to a murmur. For rock-and-roll devotees, the scraps do, indeed, have near-religious significance - they were cut from a jacket and pants that clothed Elvis Presley.
