Elvis wearing leather flame jacket

Sat Nov 14, 2009 5:22 am

Can anyone post some of the photos taken of Elvis backstage in Vegas wearing the multi-color flame jacket? There were a number of photographs taken during some sort of presentation with a group of fans in Las Vegas. Thank you!

Thing is with Shaver, those pics are obviously real, and if I had any such pics, standing there WITH Elvis, I would see no need to fabricate any more of 'em!

That is a very cool jacket. E-Cat, do you recall how much it was auctioned for?

Yes, it was auctioned as part of Ginger's collection.
The jacket was sold for approx 35K

I'm surprised it wasn't sold for more than that

Very unique looking jacket...........

"The colorful flame jacket. Elvis hated it."

It was the flame jumpsuit actually that Elvis hated. Al Strada almost had to force Elvis to wear it. The leather jacket however Elvis actually liked.

I've never doubted the authenticity of this set of photos. Some of the Shaver's others are Lichter-level fakes.
