There’s something about a garment worn by a celebrity that makes it seem much more desirable and personal than most memorabilia. Especially if it was worn in a movie or photo. A red ultrasuede pullover samba shirt (with ¾ length sleeves) worn by Elvis Presley in a 1963 publicity photo for RCA is up for auction in Chicago. Leslie Hindman auctioneers are offering a group of Elvis items (including some of his hair) from a private collector. They predict the shirt will go for around $4000 – we think it will sell for more.
