Holiday Round-up

May 17, 2015 | Other

After a well deserved holiday we are doing a quick round-up of what happened the last couple of weeks. The bootlegs are presented separately, here is an overview of the remaining news.

In the past two days, the Music Icons auction held at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. A glove of Michael Jackson was sold for nearly $47,000. A vest of Jimi Hendrix for $ 61,000. The electric guitar Maton MS500 Master Sound, once owned by George Harrison of the Beatles, changed from owner for $ 485,000.

Yesterday all the Elvis related items were sold, like the Louisiana Hayride Contract ($32,500), Certificate of Marriage ($32,500), Elvis' guitar from 1975, jewelery, remote controls from the Graceland Gates, and much much more.

High prices for the tour bus JD Sumner and The Stamps($263,000 inclusive buyer's premium), and Stutz Blackhawk Coupe purchased by Elvis on September 10, 1971. The highest bid on the car was just $ 290,000, and that's the reason why the car isn't sold on the auction, because it did not meet the reserve of $ 400,000.
