item number 7542970212 on the best selling world auction site.not sure if i can say it here.thanks

Yes, you can say eBay on here. Well the pick looks authentic to me and, considering that someone paid $360 for it, I hope it is. I see that the auction ended 2 days ago, so I'm curious as to why you're asking now.

It's as genuine as they come these days (from the EPE archives) but it is NOT the one he is actually holding in the picture.

I have one also and here's a link:

are these items from the vegas sale of graceland items.

Tue Sep 20, 2005 10:42 pm

No, the guitar pics are from GRACELAND/EPE archives, I suspect these are left overs and were never used.
I purchased mine at Graceland.

Tue Sep 20, 2005 10:50 pm

That pick is a archival pick from graceland. Never touched by elvis,s hand. But would have been if he had lived. says Graceland

150 is to much for a pick in my opinion .
for a would have been.but if your happy with it,then that,s all that matters.

Joe, you are correct and that's just what it says on the certificate:

<b>The item listed above (EP tortious shell guitar pick) is an original artifact directly from the archive of the estate of Elvis Presley at Graceland</b>

It is a 'could have been', just like me really :roll: :shock:

GUITAR PICK

The EP guitarpick is true and real and was used by Elvis during the last two tours in 1977.
I got mine handed out personally from one of his musicians who sometimes used to pick them up after the show, just to keep them for himself. So I guess I can be sure to have gotten a pick which was really touched and used by Elvis.
But as some of you correctly wrote, most of these triangular picks might have never been used in concert as the King sadly passed away before he could get his hands on these guitar picks. Amen.
