Elvis auction attracts high bids...
As noted below the online auction house 'Gotta Have It!' featured an Elvis memorabilia auction ending on March 25 with more than 400 lots. Highlights in this auction were the blue/gold jumpsuit from the Madison Square Garden concert, the white grand piano that once stood in the music room in Graceland and a combination of a black pants and shirt that Elvis use in his free time. The auction ended with results far higher than anticipated. Many items were sold for a price over the estimated values. Somewhat surprisingly Elvis' white Knabe Grand Piano attracted no bids at all.
Worth noting are:
Madison Square Garden Jumpsuit
Estimated value $150,000-$200,000: Sold for $212,588
Black Pants and Shirt
Estimated value $9,000-$10,000: Sold for $33,152
Silver and Turquoise Stage Belt
Estimated value $10,000-$12,000: Sold for $24,906
14KT Gold and Diamond Owl Ring (shown right)
Estimated value $7,000-$8,000: Sold for $40,388.40 / € 29.733
Elvis wore this Owl ring a lot in December 1970 however Elvis eventually tired of it and gave it away on a whim to his record producer Felton Jarvis.
The strange 'Guitar Pillow' shown below with Elvis' signature went for $1,200.
