Description
Carl Perkins signed TV appearance contract 1956 for 'Perry Como Show.' Carl appeared on the show on May 26th, and has signed this 5-page contract and rider in blue ballpoint. A short time later, Carl was involved in a serious auto accident. This effectively put his hopes for stardom on hold as he was competing with former Sun Records label mate, Elvis Presley, at the time. Elvis' version of 'Blue Suede Shoes' eclipsed Perkins' own version as a result. 8.5 x 11 inches. No Reserve.
