Elvis Presley memorabilia: why the King is still very much alive
Booming sale results are attracting investors to the Elvis Presley memorabilia sector
Paul Fraser Collectibles, Thursday 19 January 2012
35 years after his death, the King still reigns over the rock n roll world, and the same can be said when it comes to Elvis Presley memorabilia.
On a level with only the Beatles in stirring music memorabilia collectors' passions, Elvis is now also attracting interest from a new quarter: investors with an eye on diversity.
And it's easy to see why.
He was the world's second highest earning deceased celebrity in 2011, garnering $55m in 12 months, and auction sales for Elvis memorabilia are flourishing.
His Martin-D28 guitar made $106,200 at a US auction in 2009, while a leather suit worn by the King on stage in Las Vegas sold for $120,000 in 2008.
And then there are his many classic cars. Elvis's powder blue Mercedes-Benz Limousine sold for £80,700 ($124,600) in December 2010.
Elvis signatures are likewise much in demand.
Elvis signed photos rose in value from £750 ($1,160) in 2000 to £3,250 ($5,020) last year, at a rate of 14.26% pa, according to the PFC40 Autograph Index.
Currently in stock we have one of the finest Elvis Presley signed photographs we've ever handled. Featuring a rare postcard photograph of Elvis, the star has signed boldly in blue pen.
