GOTTA HAVE ROCK & ROLL AUCTION - APRIL 19, 2019
LOT # 49: "STAY AWAY JOE" FILM WORN RED WINE DENIM JACKET
Elvis Presley "Stay Away Joe" production worn red wine colored denim jacket in his film "Stay Away Joe." It is one of
several denim jackets made for Elvis to wear in the film, and he wore this during production.  Very good condition.
Comes with photos of Elvis from the film, a letter of provenance from Charlie Hodge, and a Gotta Have Rock &
Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity
..

First of all, the jackets are not the same colour.  BUT, let's not let that get in the way of things.

Let's take a look at the two items. The jacket Elvis wore has a V shape sewn onto the front of the jacket, coming
from both breast pockets. where-as the garment being offered for auction does NOT!

Then we have the number of buttons on each jacket. The Elvis one has 6 buttons, but the auction item has only 5!.

With all things considered, we think it's more 'Stay Away' than "Stay Away, Joe"

Minimum Bid:    Estimate:                     SOLD FOR:
$8,000              $15,000 - $20,000      $0

WTF?  Sorry but how can you show an image of Elvis taken during the production of 'ELVIS', the 1968 NBC TV
Special wearing the famous black leather outfit but trying to insinuate that these boots were part of that outfit?

LOT #54: ELVIS PRESLEY HANDWRITTEN AND TWICE-SIGNED THANK YOU NOTE
FROM THE EDDIE HAMMER ELVIS PRESLEY COLLECTION
An Elvis Presley handwritten and twice signed thank you note. Handwritten and signed in blue ballpoint ink on 5 x 8
ecru stationary. This autograph was part of Eddie Hammer’s collection and is being sold as is. Very good
condition. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity..

We have featured some horrible fake Elvis autographs while doing this service and these are among the very
worst right here.

It always amuses us when people are not satisfied with trying to fake an Elvis autograph, but they try to make it
even more amazing or historically important. And this one does not fail, not only is t a rare hand written note by
eerrm "Elvis", but he did something he'd never done before. He apparently wrote the year, 77 inside the loop of
the Y of Presley.

Minimum Bid:     Estimate:                  SOLD FOR:

LOT #56: ELVIS PRESLEY SIGNED 1957 PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE
FROM THE EDDIE HAMMER ELVIS PRESLEY COLLECTION
Elvis Presley has signed the picture of himself and Colonel Parker that accompanied a 1957 newspaper article
titled "The Colonel and a Boy Named Elvis" from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Daily Magazine in black felt tip
marker, "Sincerely, Elvis Presley." Very good condition. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of
Authenticity...

This one is a little bit of a thinker?
Joe is our chief Elvis autograph examiner and his initial reaction at seeing the signed "Sincerely" was one of
expectation to see it followed by an authentic Elvis autograph...but wait right there!

Joe states that the "Sincerely" is perfectly captured, but the autograph has issues like the P not being attached to
the Elvis. The s of Elvis having that odd little kiss and the P not attached to Elvis? Of course he didn't always do
that, but 98% of the time the "Elvis Presley" signature is mostly used on documents. But then again, not using that
very odd x type s as shown here.

Minimum Bid:     Estimate:                  SOLD FOR:

LOT #60: ELVIS PERSONALLY OWNED U.S. ARMY 3RD ARMORED DIVISION UNIFORM MILITARY PATCH
FROM THE EDDIE HAMMER ELVIS PRESLEY COLLECTION
Elvis Presley's personally owned U.S. Army 3rd Armored Division G.I. uniform military patch. Measures 3.5 x 4.
Elvis can be seen wearing this or a similar patch on various army jackets he owned. Very good condition. Eddie
Hammer was a writer for Goldmine and Discoveries magazines, he was an Elvis expert and was a paid guest
speaker at many of the Elvis Conventions in Memphis and all over the world. This piece has an amazing
provenance from someone who was also considered an expert. It is being sold as is with a Gotta Have Rock &
Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity stating it is from the Eddie Hammer Collection as well as two pictures of Elvis
wearing the same, or similar, patch...

Sometimes you have to just look at a particular item put up for auction which claims to be something special but is
in actual fact something too ridiculous to be true.  As you have read, this item claims to have been the personal
property of Elvis from his Army days?

First of all as you can easily tell, this particular unit patch has never been used. The patch looks brand new, and I
mean brand new. It's certainly not 60 years old. PLUS if you look close enough, 60 yrs ago these shoulder patches
were separates...the '3rd Armoured Division' patch and the 'Spearhead' moto were NOT one patch, these, as like
the one for auction were not produced until more modern times.  It is our opinion that this in no way ever belonged
to Elvis Presley.

Minimum Bid:        Estimate:                  SOLD FOR:

LOT #62: ELVIS PRESLEY'S PERSONALLY OWNED TCB LIGHTNING PATCH
FROM THE EDDIE HAMMER ELVIS PRESLEY COLLECTION
Elvis Presley's personally owned white and gold TCB lighting patch. Measures approximately 3.75 x 2.5. Very good condition. Eddie Hammer
was a writer for Goldmine and Discoveries magazines, he was an Elvis expert and was a paid guest speaker at many of the Elvis
Conventions in Memphis and all over the world. This piece has an amazing provenance from someone who was also considered an expert. It
is being sold as is with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity stating it is from the Eddie Hammer Collection...

If we thought the last lot (#00274) was unbelievable enough, this one saw us spit our drink across the room!

The TCB patch with the black background is what's being offered as being Elvis' very own, personal TCB patch, as seen on the left sleeve
of the red concert jackets, and just like the previous "personally owned" patch, this one has never been used either.

Apart from the question of Why would he have one? The patch is yet another post death product. We show examples above and you can
see the slight differences between the Pre-Death patches and the Post-Death ones. The most obvious tell is the T, which you can see the
top line on the reproductions are longer than the originals. But that one question keeps shining through, is it believable that Elvis Presley
really did have a TCB sew on patch all of his own? We really doubt it, but if he did, he must have kept it in a draw along with his 3rd
Armoured Division patch........NOT!

Elvis Presley has signed this original Hotel Tropicana Revue program in blue ballpoint pen. Very good condition.
Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity..

Not much can be said about this other than, YES, it is signed Elvis Presley.  It's just not signed BY Elvis Presley,
which is the biggest problem with signed things, it's always best if the Actual celebrity signed the item. But it's not

FROM THE EDDIE HAMMER ELVIS PRESLEY COLLECTION
Elvis Presley has signed both sides of the program picture page in blue ballpoint pen. Measures approximately 8 x

AAARRRGGGGGHHHH! Yep, here's a couple more pesky autographs signed by someone, in fact anyone with the
exception of Elvis Presley. And as Joe said, "Makes you wonder when something is signed twice! Practice makes
perfect.....NOT?"  Many autographs were actually signed by the likes of Sonny West, Marty Lacker etc and these
look like something Marty would scribble. But again, yet another autograph NOT by the hand of Elvis

LOT #65: "ELVIS IN CONCERT" VINTAGE RED NYLON TOUR JACKET
An Elvis Presley "Elvis in Concert" red nylon tour jacket. The black patch on the left breast reads "Elvis in Concert"
and a white "TCB" lightning bolt patch appear on the left upper arm. With red and white striped collar, cuffs and
waistband. Label reads "Holloway." Size Medium. Good condition with some wear. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock &
Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity...

What more needs to be said other than "WTF IS THIS?"  HOLLOWAY is the label that produced the first real
reproductions of the concert jackets. The actual concert jackets were produced by APOLLO by HOLLOWAY (as
shown in the image left).

But if you read the description, nothing actually says it is an authentic jacket used during Elvis' lifetime, it just says
it's vintage and that's that. Still it comes with a COA confirming it is a vintage nylon jacket. But fails to mention it
was made AFTER Elvis' death and has no real value what-so-ever.

As for the ELVIS on the back....Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Yeah Right!

From the Eddie Hammer Elvis Presley Collection, an Elvis Presley signed "The Real Elvis" 45 record sleeve, signed
in ballpoint pen. Vinyl included. Sold as is. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.

Now here we have a great example of how to destroy a really nice, rare and valuable record with bloody scribble.

EPA-940 (RCA Victor) The Real Elvis extended play from 1956 worth around $250, now all but worthless thanks to
some ass wipe scribbling the words Love Elvis Presley.

As we have already said, we have seen some shockingly awful FAKE autographs and this is yet another horrible
piece of scribble that is once again another attempt to rip someone off and at the same time destroy a valuable
historic record.

ELVIS OWNED AND WORN SHIRT
Seller: Andrew Hearn / Essential Elvis

I am delighted to be able to offer my customers this beautiful long-sleeved yellow shirt that was once owned and
worn by Elvis himself. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a genuine piece of Elvis history that will not only be a
super investment, but an incredible talking point. Comes with two letters of authenticity and a fantastic story of
how it was obtained. £1,500


This particular item was brought to our attention by our very own News Hound-Dog, Tony and also pointed out
by several of our listeners. The first issue with this item is the picture. If you were being completely honest, you
would assume this shirt was worn in the movie 'Tickle Me'? After all, there is a picture of Elvis from the film
wearing the shirt right?

Wrong! There are many pictures of Elvis in this film showing that the shirt on offer is nothing like the movie worn
shirt. The film shirt is a Western style shirt with pipping on the chest and black trim above both breast pockets
and the amount of buttons differ also. So, as you can see, the EE shirt is nothing like that.

Now, in all fairness the text about the shirt does not mention 'Tickle Me', but why they have included the image of
Elvis wearing a shirt that is a similar colour is a rather big head scratcher. Especially to use an image that hides
the very things that prove it's not the same shirt. So even though they don't say it is the same shirt, they should
have made it clear that the shirt was NOT the same. Or even better, don't use the image in the first place.

One member of the Phoenix Elvis Forum contacted Essential Elvis' Andrew Hearn to ask about the 'Tickle Me'
image, and the reply was as follows:
"It's not the same shirt, just an illustration of mainly the mustard colour." -
HUH? So, the reason the 'Tickle Me' image was used to show the colour of the shirt that was being offered. The
same shirt that was pictured as being for sale...the large picture of the shirt, next to the small picture of Elvis in
'Tickle Me' used to apparently illustrate the colour of the shirt....Strange but true!  However, ridiculous that
reason sounds.

OK, let's look at the actual shirt... All we know is there are 2 Letters of Authenticity (LOAs) but there is no
information who the LOAs are actually from? So once again, questions were asked and the answers were as
before, rather odd!  
"any potential purchaser will be fully briefed on what shirt they are actually buying.
The Tickle Me photo has been used because the seller doesn't have one of Elvis wearing the one for sale."


And what about those 2 LOAs? He doesn't
"know who has signed the two letters of authenticity", but he's "asked
the seller for the info"
.  

It just gets more and more questionable! There's no info on the make, the size etc and let's also not forget that
£1,500 is rather cheap for an actual Elvis owned and worn shirt.

But what we'll leave you with is the words of our News Hound-Dog Tony, who summed it up best...
How about trying to get 'all the facts' in the sales ad first in the hope that it will sell ?
Nah, much easier to lead people on with a bit of misrepresentation.
So let's look at it this way:
Here's a shirt 'allegedly' owned and worn by Elvis Presley, there's no picture of him wearing it available but there
are two COA's, only I can't tell you who's signed them.
You'll get the full 'story' if you're interested in buying it and private message me though.
