“LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A batch of Elvis Presley (news)’s earliest RCA recordings from nearly 50 years ago failed to meet the minimum asking price at auction on Monday, but lesser keepsakes from the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll fetched more than $6,000.
The highlight of the two-day sale of show business memorabilia by international auction house Bonhams and Butterfields was a private collection of six reel-to-reel tape recordings of Presley valued at between $30,000 and $50,000.”
