The King is dead, long live the King. Elvis died over 40 years ago but he continues to make new fans even today. And anything associated with him is highly collectable.
Lelands, an auction house in New Jersey, is selling a pair of dress pants that was worn by the King of Rock and Roll.
It set a starting bid of $300. The current bid is $531 but with 22 days left to go in the online auction, I imagine they will go for a lot more.
“Not exactly Blue Suede Shoes, but a classic item nonetheless,” Presley’s father Vernon conceded in a note that accompanies the trousers, which have “Name: E. Presley” and “MGM” printed on an inside flap.
Presley made 14 films for MGM in the 1960s, including Viva Las Vegas, Kid Galahad and The Trouble with Girls. Vernon didn't say what film they were from but I'm to guess it's the pants he's wearing in this scene from the 1967 picture "Clambake".
