Elvis Memorabilia Top Lots & Curious Collectables
Theodore Bruce is delighted to present this wonderful collection of Elvis Presley memorabilia, collated over decades by a single vendor – and dedicated Elvis fan. The fabulous finds and curious collectables include vinyl records, vintage magazines, coins, comic books and trading cards.
From Memphis with Love
A thriving souvenir industry remains in Memphis over 40 years since Elvis’ death, centred on Graceland, the star’s former home. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2006, Graceland welcomes over 500,000 visitors each year to view the bejewelled jumpsuits, gold records and glittery decor.

A Life & Death in Media
The extraordinary media frenzy that surrounded the life and death of Elvis Presley – and his marriage to Priscilla – manifested in widespread coverage from leading media outlets, gossip magazines and book publishers.
Among the selection on offer in the auction are original newspapers marking the death of Elvis in August 1977, and a large collection of books, music journals and magazines.
Some corners of the publishing industry concocted the weird and wonderful. Among the items on offer are a copy of Official UFO 1978 reporting on the escape and $100,000 reward for the return of Elvis’ clone, and Elvis Presley Speaks, a 1979 book by Hans Holzer documenting “spiritual contact with Elvis beyond the grave”.

Elvis Presley had a prolific recording career, and his eclectic discography spans pop, gospel, Rock ‘N’ Roll, country, Christmas and even spoken word.
On the back of last year’s Baz Lurhmann film, Elvis was topping charts again in 2022, while Elvis musicals continue to encourage music sales globally.
The auction features a large collection of vinyl LP’s including singles, soundtracks and live recordings.
