Glad to see it finally made it's way home and did not go into the hands of a private collector.
Just what exactly is wrong w/ private collectors owning critical pieces?!?!
Considering the history of this particular item, it truly deserved to be returned to Graceland. I will also go so far as to state, I'm sure that was also the unexpressed goal of certain collectors - seeing as how they couldn't have it for themselves ..... they'd much rather see it back at Graceland if it couldn't be in their own hands instead.

(Spoken like a true "Insider" ......... JMO)
You really do give yourself (and/or others) too much credit on this.
Besides, ...... trust me, there's nothing being shared w "Insider's" that isn't going to be shared w/ all the fandom - sooner or later. It's not only part of EPE's plan, but it's also the very nature of the kinds of people that comprise the "Insider's."
If it makes some people feel better being "officially inside", more power to you. I think the term is oxymoronic, in this case w/ EPE; IMO you're just being officially milked.
The "Insider's", after all, is all about feeling S-P-E-C-I-A-L.
