Unused 1956 Concertticket Fetches High Price At Auction

An unused 1956 Elvis concert ticket has netted a trio of siblings US$1,623.98 on eBay. The ticket belonged to their mother, Ginny Jevack, 64, of Painesville. A snowstorm on Nov. 23, 1956, prevented her from attending the concert at the Cleveland Arena. She originally bought the ticket for $2. The ticket went on the Web site a week ago, at first only garnering a $50 bid. It was the lone bid for most of the week. As Saturday's 3 p.m. deadline loomed, the item picked up interest and in the last few minutes jumped from $1,350 to the final winning bid.

Of course I'm a fan, but that ticket didn't make it for the purpose it was made for... I mean, to me it would be valious if the ticket was used to see Elvis.
