Elvis "Jon Burrows" Signature and Matchbook

Two very Elvis-like love tokens from his affair in the early '70s with Joyce Bova, who in 1994 wrote a book called "Don't Ask Forever: My Love Affair with Elvis Presley." One is a black matchbook personalized with a stylistic "E.P", which he doled out only to those he trusted. The other, truly incredible find is a paper sleeve from a $2,000 wad of cash Elvis gave Joyce to have fun with in the casino during one of his Vegas gigs, with Elvis's handwriting on the sleeve reading, "To Joyce, with love from Jon Burrows." Elvis aficionados know this is the alias he used when he simply wanted to be anonymous, and this may be the only item on the market with Elvis's hand-written usage of the name! We also note that just hours after his death was announced, a man boarded a plane for Buenos Aires paying in cash and using the name Jon Burrows. You connect the dots. Money sleeve reads "$2000" and is stamped with the date "Dec. 18, 70." There are handwritten initials "MW" on it. Sleeve is NRMT and matchbook is EX-MT but missing about half of the matches . Also a page from Bova's book in which she relates Elvis using the alias. The $2,000 is not included.
