    A Guitar Fit for a King

    Posted on July 23rd, 2015 by Joe G

    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.

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
