Elvis Presley's white suit now at $7,000 with PFC Auctions
Elvis Presley's white suit originates from the estate of a legendary collector
Paul Fraser Collectibles, Wednesday 29 May 2013
Elvis Presley's white suit is currently leading his memorabilia in PFC Auctions' latest sale, which closes May 30.
With time running out, just three bids have brought the price up to £4,500 ($6,788), though this will undoubtedly increase as the auction draws to its close.
The suit comes from the estate of legendary Elvis impersonator and collector Jim Curtin, who died in 2011. Curtin began his famous tribute show in 1975, while Elvis was still alive, and is said to have been given a jumpsuit by the man himself.
The white dress suit was made in 1969, and is emblazoned with typically-Elvis rhinestone star-shaped buttons. It is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Jim Curtin and the original Sotheby's inventory tag.
Also selling among Elvis memorabilia at PFC Auctions is a fantastic owned and worn red velvet jacket from the King of Rock n Roll, as well as a signed copy of his Now album.
