It's weird that people are paying so much money for things like that. But at least it shows that Elvis is still selling. Hope Wade has nice plans for the money he made by selling it.

How come nobody has mentioned the fact that water would have evaporated after 27 years...maybe the cup is genuine. But the water? makes me smile... :D

BELMONT, North Carolina Dec 29, 2004 ? Miss your chance to buy some water from a cup once used by Elvis Presley? Don't be disappointed now you can bid on a chance to see, but not own, the cup that held the water.

The North Carolina man who sold the water on eBay last week is now auctioning off a one-time appearance of the Styrofoam cup that originally held the water.
Wade Jones retrieved the cup and water when he went to a Presley concert in Charlotte in 1977.

He saw Presley drink from the cup while introducing his band, and later asked a security guard to give him the cup as a souvenir.

The water, sealed in a glass vial, sold for $455 on the online auction site on Saturday.

Jones doesn't want to sell the cup, but is willing to put it on display.

He wanted a minimum bid of $300, plus travel expenses, for an appearance by the cup, preferably on Elvis's birthday Jan. 8. As of Wednesday morning, Jones had received one bid for $300.
have fun with this one....
