Thank you for sharing your experiences on selling but to be fair the ones that you posted were not in the best condition . Real Elvis collectors know their stuff and will pay top prices on cool items . Bye for now


Hey Mike,

Thanks for the feedback. I definitely agree with you. Some of the 45s sleeve were not mint condition by any means. I guess the ones I was surprised that would not sell were the promo 45s. My understanding was that they were valued much more than my asking price. What do you think?


I have almost all the Elvis singles in Near Mint to Mint condition and I don´t care too much about the so called white label promo singles :wink:. What I mean to say is that if I find for sale the Gold Standard Series sleeves with the Dog On Side Black label I will buy them anyway because I am not into promo white labels.

Having said this, I don´t think you got a bad price on the promos, in fact collectors are after the whole package. Hope his help ::rocks. Bye for now :smt006.

If Elvis is collectable, why do I not even get a reaction to the Elvis monthly magazines and It's Elvis Time magazines offered for sale?
Why do the Elvis singles put up on eBay not sell? Funny enough the Bobby Solo singles did sell. He is an Italian Elvis Tribute Artist.

Insanity. Sometimes I have the same items for sale as on ebay this seller. When I put them up, I never get anywhere near what this seller gets. Makes me wonder.

Re: Elvis is no longer collectable?. You must be kidding!.

Mon Jul 22, 2013 3:56 pm

There is something up with this seller. I agree that I have tried to sell similar items that he offered which went super super high and barely had any bids on mine. Yeah something is not quite right with that seller.

Re: Elvis is no longer collectable?. You must be kidding!.

This seller has some real rare items for sale. For the right price I would buy a few of these.
But I'm sure he will not get the asking price for these items.
Sometimes dealers think that when the name Elvis is involved they can ask top money.
But they only end up paying Ebay ...

Ok, I thought it was just me! I've seen normal LPs from this seller sometimes get 100-200 dollars. I would put up the same LP , better condition, and MAYBE get 25.00. BTW, that Do The Clam sleeve no matter how scarce that 'ASK FOR' is, is no where near worth that kind of money. Only if it had an original autograph, maybe. No Elvis sleeves are worth over 1000.00 anymore the exception being, maybe, the sleeves for last 2 Compact 33 singles, in MINT shape.

Occasional items sell for good prices, but the majority of the items do not even get a bid! That's not collectable.
If I offer for sale x items by Elvis, x items by The Beatles, x items by Bob Dylan, I usually get bids for all items except for the Elvis ones. Even at € 0,99 each!

Re: Elvis is no longer collectable?. You must be kidding!.

Sun Aug 11, 2013 9:02 pm

I list a lot on Ebay. Elvis items sell but not for very good prices unless the item is super rare. New items don't do well at all. I can list mono Beatles Captiol US albums and always get a decent price. They do more business on Ebay (for me) than any other artist as far as music people go. Not sure but maybe MJ or Madonna sell, I just don't have anything by them to list.

I think even with this nice record, your collection will never ever be complete.

Re: Elvis is no longer collectable?. You must be kidding!.

Tue Aug 27, 2013 4:21 pm

I don't think anyone can have a 100% complete collection. There will always be the oddball piece. As long as you have all the legit releases, 45s, 78s, EPs & LPs in their original 1st pressings, that is something to be proud of and is complete by many folks standards. A record such as the Paramount Presents is not really 'real' meaning that is was never available to the public and could not be bought. I don't have it, but still feel I have a complete collection of Elvis records.

Re: Elvis is no longer collectable?. You must be kidding!.

I own two, (2), original copies of 1958's, "Elvis' Golden Records" and a 1959, "A Date With Elvis" in glorious Mono, and these albums are close to Mint.

I once showed these to this collector in Greensboro, N.C. and he offered me $1,000.00 and I declined.

I was certain these records were going to be worth a fortune and as time has gone by, I soon learned that 45rpm records/ 33 1/3 Lp albums are only worth what someone is "willing to pay for them, that's the reality.

If someone is "willing" to pay more for a "Beatles" album, then it's worth it for them, not me.

Not sure what these Elvis Presley Albums are worth today, I really don't care anymore, they'll be with me until I sh*t the bed.

You can't come to the conclusion that EP is no longer collectible only because you sold only one magazine. Hell, there are probably hundreds of those magazines still around among hardcore fans! We're talking collectibles here!!!

Had the same experience with other Elvis items like singles, LP's, 8-tracks, books.
If an artist is collectable, all items by such an artist should sell easily.
So Elvis is NOT collectable.

I sold all Beatles items, though! They are collectable!

Re: Elvis is no longer collectable?. You must be kidding!.

Thu Sep 26, 2013 9:08 pm

Certain items by any number of artists can raise high prices - particularly autographs. But that doesn't mean that everything by them is collectable, and very little by Elvis is collectable these days - especially when we look at his records over the years. But I'm not quite sure what that is meant to tell us? I would say for the same about Sinatra - hardly the most collectable of artists. But collectability says zilch about how great or not the artist's recordings are.

The father of a friend of mine told me, once he found out I love Elvis, he had something very special for me. He used to collect EP stuff back in the 70s and 80s. Next time I met him he took me to his car, opened the trunk and it was filled with cassettes...All very rare EP live shows, he told me. And sure: lots of Vegas shows, and tour shows. He was convinced he had the holy grail! I just could not get myself to tell him that it all had been released on CD (this happened about 3 years ago) and I just said I didn't want it because I didn't own a cassette player anymore.

Point I'm trying to make is that you can discuss about what is collectible. Certainly not LP's or cassettes or old magazines, imo. When I'm talking about collectibles I mean the more rarer stuff, one of a kind items, like you find at auctions for example....
