The Tankers Annual 1963

gary2 - kopieHere we have a very nice 60′s fanclub magazine that is virtually loaded with interesting and rare candids!
 
The story of Gary Pepper and his Tankers fanclub is wellknown within the Elvis community. Gary sadly died in 1980. And a few years ago his huge collection of Elvis’ personal belongings, lots of signed documents and records, as well as rare candids/negatives, were auctioned off (HERE!).

    Fantastic document, full of rare pics !

    I’ve never seen that horizontal photo with Dewey showing him a record. This surely must be 1957, judging by Elvis’ looks – probably taken the same day as the one he’s visiting a record store.

    The photo with Gene Smith is also very rare.

    Also, the photo showing the Graceland secretaries is way cool.

    Thanks everybody !
