The market for Elvis Presley collectibles was occasionally bullish, but mostly bearish during a major auction of items in Memphis on Thursday night. There’s jackets, guitars, handguns, and more, but what really caught our attention was a pair of sneakers. Opening activities will be highlighted by a Guest House ribbon-cutting ceremony, exclusive live concerts, celebrity appearances and red carpet VIP events throughout the weekend to celebrate Elvis Presley and his legacy, and mark the opening of the most significant enhancement to Graceland since it opened to the public in 1982, and the largest hotel project in Memphis in over 90 years. Saks said his Elvis Presley stamps could sell for as much as $15,000 to $20,000 if nobody else managed to accomplish the same feat he did.
The sneakers themselves are actually doper than you might expect, and the fact that the original box was kept in such immaculate shape is impressive.
Her self-published book, titled “Taking Care of Elvis – Memories with Elvis as His Private Nurse and Friend”, is a collection of short stories.
All the auction items are authenticated, and are from third-party collectors and not from Graceland archives, the auctioneers said.
Thanks to a hefty new auction hosted by Graceland, you can bid on that and numerous other unusual items. He said that was a common occurrence in the auction business.
Graceland Auctions said: “The integrity of the auction and the authenticity of artefacts are of paramount importance to us”.
Presley gave the 15-diamond gold pinky ring to a member of his inner circle who started working with Presley after he returned from his military service and continued working with him until the early ’70s. Selling price: $27,500. Selling price: $25,000. Selling price: $16,250. She was the first to be sued and her attorneys vowed to keep fighting in a case legal experts have likened the resistance some local officials put up five decades ago when the Supreme Court legalized interracial marriage. Selling price: 3,375 dollars (£2,100).
The stamp, a black-and-white image of the young Elvis accompanied by Presley’s signature in gold ink, is part of the Postal Service’s “Music Icons” series.
