Now accepting bids for the smelly elixir of life
Does Elvis Presley’s sweat cure the common cold? If it’s caked into a 40-year-old smudged piece of white fabric, does Elvis sweat turn lead into gold, water to wine?
No, it doesn’t. But is Elvis sweat still worth up to $200,000? The answer is yes, probably.
One of the items on sale is a special suit owned by Elvis Presley—that’s the King of Pop to you—that the aging star wore during his Las Vegas performances. Likely to fetch between $100,000 and $200,000, the suit has a green and blue peacock rendered in rhinestones and gold lame on the front and back, CNBC reports. As everyone knows, a bejeweled white jump suit is a nightmare to wash, so it still has Elvis Sweat Stains™ in the armpits.
Other items include Bob Dylan’s original handwritten lyrics to “Like A Rolling Stone,” corrections and all, which could sell for up to $2 million, and John Lennon’s piano, which was also played by Elton John and David Bowie and could go for $100,000 to $200,000. Also, there are some John Lennon drawings, and Jim Morrison’s Love Her Madly lyrics.
Rock fans, come one, come all.
