NORFOLK, Va., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- A 42-year-old man who is trying to collect a poster from every concert Elvis Presley ever did has offered $10,000 for one from a 1956 concert in Norfolk, Va.

The Norfolk Virginian Pilot reported Sunday that, while Andrew Hawley's payment offer may seem outrageous to some, it is simply an indication of how dedicated he is to his collection.

"I'm trying to get a poster for every concert that he did," said Hawley. "But I really want to get the one from Norfolk, Newport News and Richmond. I've been chasing them for a long time. I'm sure that someone has one."

Other posters Hawley is willing to pay top price for include Bob Dylan's 1966 show at Norfolk Arena and rock 'n' roll icon Buddy Holly's 1958 Hampton Roads appearance.

"I figured if I put a big reward on it," Hawley said, "someone would go look in their attic and say, 'I got it!'"
