Elvis’ Peacock Jumpsuit Is Worth Big Bucks

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An iconic piece of Elvis memorabilia is going to leave collectors flying high and “All Shook Up” at an upcoming auction.

On July 21 through August 6, is hosting a Rock And Roll Pop Art Auction featuring coveted memorabilia from legends like the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Johnny Cash, Jerry Garcia, and Elvis.

Among the items on the auction block is The King’s favorite 1974 stage-worn jumpsuit that he personally named “The Peacock” for it’s decorative bird emblem.

But collectors will have to tap into their nest egg to win the infamous jumpsuit. CEO Pete Siegel says the item is expected to command $275,000 to $300,000 and may break records for the most expensive piece of Elvis memorabilia ever sold.

Other items up for grabs include...

  • John Lennon’s cherished talisman necklace which he wore for two years straight and at his nude photoshoot with Yoko Ono for the Two Virgins album.

  • A rare Please Please Me Beatles album signed by the Fab Four, and their manager Brian Epstein.
