Mine says $6.95 shipping. It says they have "more than 10 available".:supriced: Are we supposed to be surprised by that?:supriced: I'm guessing that how ever many people want to buy one is the same amount that they have available. I bet they never sell out!:lol::lol::lol:

I don't see how it's any different from what EPE does

I doubt there will be a lot of interest in this and it fades away.

Who is the guy that seems to think this is a chance of a lifetime??:doh::doh: He thinks it's wonderful that for $67.00 they will mail you a piece of paper???:doh:
I can make up some certificates on the computer and I'll only charge you the cost of a stamp!:lol::lol:

Let's just say that guy joined us purely to defend Lacker...he ranted on about what a great deal it was and that he has paid his money....LMAO.....and what a wonderful person Lacker is....i won't go into it here - too long...but i found a post on another board where Lacker used the f-word (with no editing) to an Elvis Fan......so that kind of gave me an indication as to just what a wonderful guy he is......our point was simply that this was in our opinion a rip off idea....the conversation was more or less finished until this guy was sent to put us in our place.....LOL...he picked the wrong people to intimidate......at someones suggestion that he get off his high horse, he said he had lost his ladder.....three of us searched out photos of Elvis with a ladder and posted them for him, saying here you go - your "best friend" is here with a ladder for ya......after a long and funny discussion about printing off "stiffkits" ie certificates and posting pics of possible ones ....we tend to use humour alot ....and Rosanne - don't be cheap with your postage stamps - it costs $7 to mail that piece of paper...... ;)

We have now locked the thread as there is no more to say......but funny to see that thread had 1192 hits.......sorry to ramble....

This is interesting:

the only time I've seen Marty sell anything is to raise money quickly to do something for his kids and grandkids and that's maybe three times in 32 years

You don't use your friends to raise quick cash. Poor Elvis, gone for all these years and still supporting them.

Well move over Mother Theresa, the MM is coming:

They have done many things at their own expense at no charge to any fan. i saw them do this on two occassions in two years during the two Memphis Mafia Reunions at the Memphis Ramada Inn that they appeared at where they were not paid to do so, and after they stayed in the lobby for over an hour and a half signing autographs and taking pictures for anyone who asked and unlike a couple of other MM, they did not charge the fans one penny for that.


Outside in the real world folks, these people mean nothing. They are just average Joes like the rest of us and no one would give them or their autograph a second look. So please, get a grip.

Is there no depths these guys will stoop to make money off the back of their friend Elvis? These two are despicable, if Elvis could have foreseen what these guys were doing in his name he would have been sickened.

Elvis founded the Memphis Mafia and as such was the person who controlled who became a member or not. When Elvis died so did the Memphis Mafia, so these two losers are in no position to make anybody an Honorary member of a club that doesn't exist. People could join the 'Sell-out Elvis Club' if they so wished. (n)

I remember reading, so we have to take that into consideration, considering the source, that Elvis didn't like the name: "Memphis Mafia".
