This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 8/14/2022

Offered is an "OFFICIAL ELVIS PRESLEY SHOW" backstage ribbon and souvenir photo from Elvis' cruise to Hawaii for his November 10-11, 1957, concerts at Honolulu Stadium and a local Army base. These backstage ribbons are very tough to find, and one attributed to this tour incredibly rare. On the cruise to Hawaii, these 5 x 7 "Moss" photos were given to fans.

Elvis and his entourage sailed to Hawaii from Los Angeles aboard the first class Matson Line ship, the USS Matsonia, on November 5, 1957. Elvis was scheduled for three concerts, including a performance for troops and their families at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu. The voyage across the Pacific took several days, during which Elvis’ new film Jailhouse Rock opened in theaters. When the Matsonia docked in Honolulu on November 9, 1957, an on-board press conference was held before Elvis disembarked and set foot on Hawaiian soil for the first time. The badge measures 2 x 4 3/4 inches, and the photo measures 5 x 7 inches. Excellent to Mint condition.
