A Guitar Fit for a King

Posted on July 23rd, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

Those of us in Chicago are familiar with the Million Dollar Quartet, a musical inspired by a jam session involving Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins back in 1956.

A guitar signed by all four actual members, along with some other Presley memorabilia, will be up for auction next month in no other place than the King’s hometown of Graceland. The guitar is expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000.

Other notable Presley items for sale include a jumpsuit he wore in Las Vegas in 1973, known as the “Starburst” jumpsuit, expected to fetch between $100,000 and $150,000; a 1956 signed transfer agreement that moved 15 songs under the umbrella of his publishing house (Gladys Music) expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000; and a Walther Model PPK/S 9mm Kurz handgun he owned, engraved with “Elvis” and “TCB,” expected to be sold for between $100,000 and $150,000.

The auction will be at the Graceland Archives Studio August 13th at 8 pm EDT and online via eBay. 174 lots will be featured, comprising the third and largest auction of Elvis Presley artifacts. August 8th – 16th is considered Elvis Week.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
