(Fox News) – Nearly 35 years after his death, a library book checkout card signed
by a teen Elvis Presley will be available at auction.

Elvis was 13 when he checked out a copy of “The Courageous Heart: A Life of
Andrew Jackson for Young Readers” from Humes High School in Memphis,
Tenn., according to the Daily Mail.

The 1948 library card with Elvis’ signature was found by a librarian while discarding
old books,according to the paper.

The current bid for the card, which is being sold with a copy of the book, is $2,600,
and is expected to grow to at least $4,000 when the Heritage Auction closes on
August 14, two days before the 35th anniversary of the singer’s death.
