So…Omega Auctions is peddling some of Elvis Presley’s personal possessions “to commemorate the 35th year of his passing”.
Some may find that auctioning a personal Bible is in poor taste…
…but, I suppose you could say that sort of thing happens all the time in estate auctions and with people who were historic figures.
Well OK, how about this item?
Elvis Presley`s personal black plastic cylindrical container with lid from Elvis Presley`s over night case, owned and used by Elvis Presley. Accompanied by an Elvis Presley Museum certificate of authenticity hand signed by Jimmy Velvet.
Hmmm…I wonder what a guy like Elvis would keep in a “black plastic cylindrical container with lid”. By the way, Jimmy Velvet and Elvis’ were “lifelong close friends”…I guess that’s BFFL not BFAD?
So, maybe you’re the type of person that finds sacred items and Quaalude bottles a little tacky. Perhaps you should take a look (a close look) at this…
Presley`s 1977 jumpsuit underwear – this pair of light blue dance briefs was worn by entertainer Elvis Presley in 1977 while on stage. Elvis didn`t want any lines visible while he was on stage wearing his vast array of dazzling jumpsuits. This pair of underwear was obtained from the estate of Vernon Presley, Elvis` father”. The underwear had been on display at the world famous Elvis-A-Rama Museum for many years. The Elvis-A-Rama was later bought by Graceland and retired.
