    With the amount of jewlery Elvis gave away during his life time that would almost seem impossible.

    .

    Hmmm. And those of you complaining this suit should be at Graceland - if you had the money, would you not buy it yourself if you could?

    And if any of you say that you'd buy it then donate it to Graceland, then I simply will not believe you ...

    I want it

    I would love to own some rare Elvis stuff. Can't rally afford the big items. I do have 2 autographs. Guess I'll have to be satisfied with those.

    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    There was a thread on here about why Ginger gets a bad rap. This would be one example for me:

    "Elvis gave the suit to the Alden family, who later sold it to Jimmy Velvet."
