I agree with Jeff. Stop selling these items and keep them for us all to look at not just one person!

Another memory of Elvis sold! It saddens me to hear of another auction selling the treasured gifts etc Elvis gave to his `friends`? i fear not to many years from now,nothing will be left for future generations of fans to see. Very sad,and how lonely was Elvis ?,it makes you wonder..

Not sure WHICH leather pants these are . . . BUT . . . IF these are the cream-colored ones, I delivered them to the Elvis Museum in Sweden in April 1985 and I can assure you the new Swedish owner bought them for far, far less than the price they just sold for. They had been owned by the Burnett family, who owned the old Hickory Log restaurant across from Graceland. And, interesting to note, on the inside of the pants (keeping in mind Elvis never wore skivvies when performing) there were little traces of blood marks from where the doctor(s) gave him "energy" shots before concerts. // 007
