One lucky fan was thrilled to catch a memento at a concert from “The King” of entertainment, Elvis Presley. Presley had what is now considered a house residency at the Las Vegas Hilton for many years. At a concert held on August 18, 1975, one fan got this 30×30 scarf handed to her right from around his neck. It was dripping with sweat from his brow and even has a slight blood stain from where he wiped his lip. The blood stain is still visible.
The scarf didn’t come to her naturally as there was sort of a scuffle between her and another fan after the song, “My Boy”. Elvis leaned down to give it away and she jumped quite gracefully (we might add) up to the stage to grasp it from him.
The scarf is baby blue with a facsimile Elvis signature and Hilton brand logo in white. It shows some minor blood staining from use/wear. Included with the scarf from the concert event is a souvenir 12×18 poster (menu), sticker and The Celebrity Room at MGM menu (10×11.5). Overall, what a great sweat soaked concert prize!
