The King’s bedazzled jockstrap could be yours! That is, if you’re willing to pay the hefty $37.5K price tag…
The intimate undergarment, which features Elvis’ initials and rhinestones galore, was handcrafted by a fan and reportedly worn regularly by the star.
Prior to his untimely death in 1977, Elvis subsequently gave it to his cousin Billy Smith’s son.
Some time after, the piece became part of the Elvis Presley memorabilia collection belonging to singer Jimmy Velvet, who was a close friend of Presley.
It last popped up for sale in 2020 by Paul Fraser Collectibles.
I bet it stinks to high heavens by now!
“[It’s] Extravagant. Absurd. Sexually potent. This rhinestone-studded jockstrap is pure Elvis Presley,” said Daniel Wade, a representative of Paul Fraser, at the time. “I’m sure the new owner won’t be able to resist wearing it out on a Saturday night — the Elvis magic will work wonders, I’m certain.”
Would you drop big coin for The King’s underthings, OMG!?
