    Hi Toffe I am not too sure about the ones with hair and clothes but I do collect trading cards...I have the Platinium Collection and I am very lucky to have got a rare card but they are great things to collect just be careful what you buy it if sounds too good to be true it usually is

    Have fun...

    Okei, what types is good to start with?, i founded one site with a overview of the cards:

    http://www.elvis.net/cards/cardsframe.html

    Is this a good start?

    Any of these?

    These would be a good start. I've seen these at Walmart & Target in my little port town. As well as on EPE. So if you can buy them as a whole set on Ebay, great. Hair? I don't know - I'd be suspicious. Clothes, yeah I can see that. A company can cut a lot of tiny squares of fabric from a shirt that a 6 foot man would wear. ( I don't how how big these fabric samples would be.) I imagine that Elvis has a ton of clothes that EPE wouldn't mind parting with one or two shirts for this purpose. Then, too, it depnds on what kind of collection you want. Cards would be easy to pull out & look at when the mood struck.

    I would try some web sites that sell baseball cards, etc. They might also have the whole set. Years ago I brought the whole set of Elvis cards, 650, and the notebook that came with it.

    I dream a world where man no other man
    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...

    I started collecting the Elvis Lives series after my baby brother started me on them. Timmy collects Harry Potter. I've seen entire base collections on Ebay, and just single cards altho not the only card I'm missing . Another fan on this site bought the card withthe shirt fabric from ebay. This collection has been fun for me. good luck
    All I wanted was a white knight with a good heart, soft touch, fast horse
    Ride me off into the sunset Baby, I'm forever yours
