    Thank you very much Mike, he must be hard up to sell, I wonder if these are really originals or copies, from what I can see, I didn't see anything earth-shattering or of very much interest.

    Well according to the auction listing, he's selling them to help pay for some repairs on his house...

    They certainly look like originals to me, but obviously I'm not a photographic expert!

    As I was browsing through the pictures listed with the auction, I did see a couple of candids obviously shot during the filming of PARADISE HAWAIIAN STYLE (he's wearing the blue shirt with the vertical Hawaiian design on it) as well as a couple of shots of Elvis driving a car that I don't recall seeing anywhere before.

    These are not worth the current bid.

    Hmmm...I don't know about that pal. If the pictures can be proven to be authentic, having unpublished candids of Elvis (if there are indeed unpublished ones in there) might be worth quite a bit of money...

    Perhaps we should defer to other experts???

    I don't see why they wouldn't be since he knew Elvis and was around him quite a bit.
    Marty Lacker was saying the other day on the site that he posts that a lot of Elvis co-stars including Ann Margret signed pictures for him and gave them to him. He also said that he went over to where the Beatles were staying the day after they met Elvis and they gave him some autographed pictures.
    If he has pictures autographed by Ann Margret and the Beatles it would be worth a whole lot probably more than what he's asking for.

    Whoever ends up buying those is just throwing money away.Just glancing at the images I see previously released shots.Many of them.Looks like photos he just picked up along the way.Lacker is in many of the shots I believe.Doesnt look like a goldmine of umnpublished pics he took.Im guessing most are just reprints if not all.They all look "soft" which implies they are reprints.I would stay away from this big time.

    Re: Marty Lacker Photo Collection For Sale on eBay

    having looked through there doesn't seem to me that many that I haven't already seen (and in better quality) I'm not saying they aren't his photo's but he must have released them before or got them off the original photographer?

    I certainly wouldn't pay $900.00 for them, I might be a bit cynical these days, but these guys make a habit of selling Elvis related items that if added up collectively would be enough to fill a warehouse

    Marty said that Anne's signed photo is for sale, too, if you have a heavy wallet (in case anyone wants to know).

    Just seems like to me that he bought most of his pictures at the same place I bought mine!! Look closely at those pictures. Such a rip-off but not surprised coming from Lacker the Slacker!

    Actually her autograph really isnt that valuable.Coming from Lacker doesnt add value at all to it.

    Whoever wins is getting ripped off. Very intertesting to watch though.

    the ones garry Pepper had where much more spectacular
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic

    At $100 each on the $3000 Buy-It-Now option?

    I doubt it.

    I once sent a pic of Ann-Margret to her to autograph for me and she signed it ... for nothing!

    No AM pic is worth that much; not even most Beatles pics would go for that price.

    Frankly I would be suspicious of anything Marty has for sale and claims it's authentic.
