Description:

Before the ill-fated racquetball club venture that was Presley's Center Courts ceased operations just a few months after launching in April 1976, these little beauties were printed and now remain among the few reminders of Elvis' foray into private business. "Chairman of the Board" is listed as the title for Elvis–only fitting–and the card is adorned with a gold-embossed "TCB" logo in the upper right and the Presley's Center Courts logo in the upper left. The debts piled up faster than the memberships of this new sporting concern, and the business ceased operations by mid-summer. A nice companion piece to any Elvis Presley racquetball artifact.  The accompanying DVD interview with Sam Thompson features Sam speaking about several items available in this auction, including this very business card.The card measures 2 1/2 by 3 inches (6.35 x 7.62 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The 2 1/2" x 3" business card with gold embossed "TCB" logo remains in Near Mint condition.
