am a friend of Marty's and since I am a member here he asked me to post this offer to the members of TKC. He initially had these pictures on eBay last week and the highest bidder was $2950 although they are worth much more but the guy turned out to be a game player and had no intention of paying for them So Marty decided for now to offer a special deal directly to Elvis fans who collect and are interested.
For twenty years Marty Lacker was a close friend of Elvis Presley and for a number of years was his right hand man or as Elvis and The Memphis Mafia called it, The Foreman. Through those years Marty took some great candid pictures of Elvis and the MM in various situations and he was also given many pictures by other people who shot them. There are some great never before seen pictures of various places and times that Elvis and the guys enjoyed within those 20 years. He also has a couple of pictures of Elvis' jewelry that Elvis gave to Marty as well as pictures that include a few other stars that knew Elvis taken with Elvis or the guys with them.
There is also a rare copy of the original program of the first annual memorial event held at the Circle G Ranch on August 16,1978 in memory of Elvis where Marty was one of the featured speakers and co-producers. There are a couple of other rare documents in the collection. There are pictures of Elvis at Graceland and other Memphis locations, Hollywood, Hawaii and other places.
We are calling them a collection because Marty has decided to sell all 210 pictures, one of the largest photo collections related to Elvis and he is selling them as a total 210 picture package. This is not a sale of individual pictures.
The collection also includes pictures of Elvis' wedding where Marty served as Elvis' co-Best Man, pictures of the inside and outside of Graceland with Elvis and the guys. Pictures on movie sets and locations. Pictures of a few of Elvis' close relatives not seen before. Plus so many more different situations. Over 98 percent of the pictures are casual candids just a few are professionally posed pictures. They are both 8x10's and snapshot size. It is a great mixture and one that any fan or Elvis or photograph devotee would love to have. Judging from a recent auction of Elvis items in Chicago, a few pictures of Elvis wedding went quickly and for big money ($6,000), therefore anyone interested in this one of a kind super collection we advise to get your bid in quickly. Compared to that auction price for just a few pictures this collection is a big bargain.
SO THAT YOU DON'T THINK I'M IMPOSING ON TKC I ASKED MY LONGTIME FRIEND JORDAN IF IT WAS OK TO POST THIS HERE AND HE SAW NOTHING WRONG WITH IT AS I DID NOT WANT TO IMPOSE ON YOU ALL BUT THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND MEMORABLILIA PHOTO COLLECTION THAT I HAVE AMASSED OVER 20 YEARS OF BEING CLOSE TO ELVIS. UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME THE GUY WHO WAS THE HIGH BIDDER WAS A JUVENILE GAME PLAYER AND HE RENEGED ON PAYING HIS $2950 HIGH BID. I WAS GOING TO ACCEPT THAT AMOUNT EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THIS COLLECTION IS WORTH MUCH MORE. THANK YOU FOR READING THE FOLLOWING
The highest bid last Sunday was $2950 even though I think 210 pictures are worth a heck of a lot more.
I will sell them outright for $2500 and will include a COA. I also have 30 autographed pictures of Elvis' movie co-stars that should bring more but I will sell the whole deal all 240 pictures if you increase it to $2800.
Thing is I need to do it ASAP as I need a new furnace for my house which is why I'm selling this collection that I've held all these years.. If that doesn't suit you make me a fair offer. I know the least I'll take and need for my furnace however at the price I quoted that's a steal. That's a little over $10 per photo and there are some photos in there that you could probably sell for a few hundred dollars each.
He can see the pictures at:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=260500086695
The big picture on that site is less than half the pictures. if you click on the small pictures underneath the big one and click on pictures 2,3,&4 on the top row he can seel the rest of the pictures, there's a lot of them and we could not get them all in one picture.
If you are interested you can email me at email@example.com
Thanks, ... Marty
