Postcard Friendship Friday (03/13)
Now how about this unique postcard someone found on eBay:
"Offered for sale on eBay is a possibly unique post card signed by Elvis and posted on January 15th 1955 (using a 2 cent stamp).
The post card reads "Dear Al. Your a heart breaker if you don't help me with my "Milk Cow Blues Boogie." Sun Records Thanks Elvis Presley" and it is addressed to Al Robinson KSYL Alexandria La.
The post card was taped in Al's scrap book so there are some tape marks on the edge.
Robinson tells the story about the postcard and about the only booking of an Elvis show he ever did (for 165 dollars) on the clip below.
In case you're wondering: bidding begins at 250,000 $US." Source: Elvis Information Network
