Answer
Hi Lauretta,

An Elvis Presley autograph is one of the most forged autographs out there. I would check with a trusted and professional Autograph or auction house like Sothebys. Elvis was a generous signer and there are a lot out there but he has an easy signature to fake. Some signatures, like on Elvis checks, might actually be one of his Bodyguards signing Elvis' name. One thing to look for is that Elvis usually had a space between the P and R in his last name.

I would try Roger Epperson at www.signedsealeddel.com he is a leading autograph authentication expert.

Thank you for the question.

Sincerely,
