Elvis Presley's American Express credit card sold for over $40k

Postby Mogul of Pineapples » Tue Apr 14, 2009 3:09 am

And that was 15 years ago back in '94 when it sold for that amount, probably a wise investment considering it was the original Elvis Presley credit card complete with signature on the back. It was sold at an auction house in Vegas (Butterfield's) for $41,400 when it was only appraised at a max of $8,000.

I couldn't find a picture of it but I did find one of Elvis Visa card (back then it was called BankAmericard). Pretty cool huh?

I wonder what other celebrity credit cards are for sale on the market and how much they go for nowadays?

There will come a time when Elvis memorabilia including this credit card will plateau in value. The generation which following him is aging and will not be around forever.
