As of 2014, Elvis Presley trading cards have a value range of a few dollars per set up to over $1,000 for a rare mint-condition card. The most valuable Elvis Presley cards appear in the 1956 Topps set, which is the first set issued.
The 1956 Topps Elvis cards are graded according to quality, which determines the value for collectors. According to PA Sports, a mint-condition number 9 1956 Topps Elvis card sold for $2,234 in 2008. A mint-9 number 20 card from the 1956 edition sold for $1,952 in 2011. These cards represent the exception in terms of resale values of Elvis trading cards. Most Elvis card sets were mass-produced and have little monetary value.
