I just read an article about a anonymous collector who paid $300K for Elvis’ peacock themed jumpsuit. I won’t waste your time with obvious questions regarding the kind of person who drops such a large amount of money on memorabilia. Instead, I must confess, the first question that came to my mind was a little more on the logistical side.
Well, considering how large Mr. Presley was towards the end of his life, and the bright lights of the average 70’s auditorium show, the first thing that popped into my head was whether the suit still has the original sweat stains? If so, would that make the suit more valuable? Like a piece of antique furniture that’s never been painted? Or a vintage car with original upholstery?
