“Elvis remains an immensely popular figure in American music and pop culture,” said Margaret Barrett, director of entertainment and music auctions at Heritage. “His immense collectability continues to feed a steady market, as shown by the prices in this auction, which routinely bested our pre-auction estimates.”
Attire owned by The King also drew top dollars. A dark red and black patterned narrow lapel, single breast jacket by Sy Devore fetched $12,500. A Lansky Brothers trench coat, which Elvis autographed and inscribed to a friend, sold at $12,188. A poster promoting an Elvis concert that occurred on February 6, 1955 at Ellis Auditorium in Memphis, Tennessee fetched $11,875.
