From Elvis' start with Sun Records in 1954 and the Louisiana Hayride to sell-out concerts in Las Vegas in the 1970s, Elvis has always had loyal and enthusiastic fans and, as fans, we all want something to help connect us with our favorite stars. That's when we start collecting anything at all related to them. Records, posters, concert tickets, etc. all become valuable, but since those aren't enough to quench our thirst, licensed items start being produced.
After he became famous, Elvis "items" were produced and continued throughout his career and are produced even more prolifically now. Of course any collector would love to have a collection that was all vintage items, but since they are scarce and hard-to-find, they've become unaffordable for all but the most rabid and affluent fans. Luckily in recent years numerous companies have produced a bounty of Elvis collectibles helping to satisfy collectors looking for affordable price ranges.
These newly made collectibles are very popular and, even though it's been many years since his death, more items are licensed and crop up every year. Just a quick visit to the official Elvis Presley site will give you an idea of the range being offered. Since it would be virtually impossible to list everything Elvis that is collectible, here are a few highlights of some great stuff that is a little bit off the beaten path.
The true Elvis aficionado most likely knew about the Elvis Presley Furniture Collection by Vaughn-Bassett. No red velvet... but lots of subtle Elvis touches were on the furniture line.
The Vandor Company has produced one of the larger selections of Elvis collectibles, including table top items, cookie jars, and numerous other decorative pieces.
Want an Elvis Christmas tree? For the past few years Carlton Cards has issued the best Elvis Presley figural ornaments around and they're musical! Issue prices are around $35. The local stores usually sell out of these fairly early in the season and I've spotted the first one from 1995 selling for around $95. Other companies producing holiday pieces include Hallmark, American Greetings, Kurt Adler and Department 56.
Also think Elvis coffee, wine, jewelry, scrapbooking, house keys, lots of clothing, mugs, bears and even a Jailhouse Rock bicycle. In other words, if you want it -- it's probably been made with an Elvis logo!
