Description:

This card-sized, doubled-sided certificate is dated June 29, 1973, and certifies Felton Jarvis for membership in the Pasaryu Karate Association. The card is signed by Kang Rhee on the front for 8th Kup Cobra White Belt. On the reverse, Elvis Presley has signed with a big bold black autograph as the approval signature just above the following statement: "A clear mind, healthy body, and the ability to protect ourselves prepares us to make a better daily life and society. I pledge to abide by the rules set forth by this association. I also pledge never to use that which I have learned except in a case of extreme emergency." Amazingly, this card was issued to Felton after his kidney transplant in 1972, which had been arranged and paid for by Elvis himself. Included with this lot are four color photo reproductions of Elvis, with two depicting Elvis and Kang Rhee. The certificate card measures 2 1/4 by 3 1/2 inches (5.71 x 8.89 cm). The card, contained in hard plastic holder, is accompanied by a certificate from Tony Frost, Felton Jarvis' nephew and a certificate of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 

Please Note: This lot includes the three photos shown here-NOT four as originally described.

Condition Report: The card is in overall excellent condition and shows no signs of fading. Card has slight wear around the edges, minor vertical creasing and a strong, bold signature by Elvis. The card is encased in a plastic screw down holder.
