The Independent newspaper here in Ireland says it sold for 65,000 Euros.

We will get the final figure soon enough.

That's a whooping US$83,000, an increase of thousands of percent (LOL) over the price of the item, when it was produced, which was US$0.35. Not bad. It beats the US$10,000 paid by a bidder at a benefit auction in Las Vagas, in 1999, for a guitar pick Elvis used in 1970. The pick cost US$0.25 cents to produce, and that included his initials..(LOL).

The original recording of Elvis Presley's "That's All Right", an acetate in fact, and which sold today at a Dublin auction for 64,000 was bought by an internet bidder. The 64,000 figure does NOT include fees that are attached to the sale, which will bring the actual cost of the record up to about 80,000 for the successful bidder.
That raises the US$ value of the acetate to a truly staggering US$103,000.

An original recording of Elvis Presley's "That's All Right" has been sold at a Dublin auction for 64,000.

It was bought by an internet bidder and was part of an auction of rock 'n' roll memorabilia that took place today in the RDS.

The Elvis recording, which was made in 1954, had an estimate of 50,000-70,000 going into the auction.

The 64,000 figure does not include fees that are attached to the sale, which will bring the actual cost of the record up to about 80,000 for the successful bidder.

A set of autographs by members of The Beatles signed on the back of an Aer Lingus menu was sold for 2,900 plus fees, which was slightly below the 3,500 estimate.

An autographed single of "Let It Be" by The Beatles went for 4,300.

Well Jim, since you bring up the sale of some of the autographs I took a look at the dozen or so Elvis autographs being offered in this sale at Whytes. And it is so clear why the consignor, whomever it is, took his garbage to Ireland. The "experts" at Whytes haven't got an F'en clue what they're doing. And you can quote me on that. Of the dozen (or so) autographs offered in this auction, I don't think that but one or two have even a remote chance of being genuine. And some are so obviously fake that this auction house should be charged with fraud for misrepesenting them. A joke if there ever was one. But nothing is funny here. There was even an Elvis hand written letter and evelope offered from 1960. It was pure trash. Did that piece of crap sell? Other autographs came with some kind of a letter from Ed Parker. Ed Parker is dead so he is of no help and as the old saying goes...dead men tell no tales. This Whytes auction place in Ireland needs to be severaly remprimanded for offering such garbage to the public. They have set Elvis autograph buying back at least ten years. Well done lads!!! Their Elvis autographed offerings would turn a knowledgeable collectors stomach. A most shameful public exercise if there ever was one by this money hungry Irish auction house. Do your homework or don't get involved in the hobby. Period. Of course, when you've got friends like Scotty, with his background, who needs to bother with the truth or integrity?? Hey now wait a minute. Perhaps it was old Scotty who did the authenticating of the Elvis signed peices. That would explain everything. Heaven help us all.

Yes that was a quite significant amount, and we should all applaud Maurice for his tireless promotions, for sure that worn out and scratched old acetate would have never reached that lofty figure without that worn out old ugly Irishman promoting it, he alone is the champion of the auction. My Hearty congrats to you Maurice....Now go away and die...Please.

Do not think that Morris had much to do with the sale. It was an internet bidder cat who bought the thing. The auction can take place anywhere with the internet. Ireland Schmireland. Now if the old pensioner wants to do some real good and repent at the same time, he should crusade against the one dozen or so fake Elvis autographs sold or at least up or auction in the same sale. If he does not does this he simply shows his ignorance and is in compliance with these fruadulent sales. Would not be the first time. Which path will the wrinkly old fart choose?

I haven't the foggiest notion of why you are bringing me into what is obviously a personal matter between you and whoever is you're trying to discredit. I didn't make a mention of any Elvis autographs, nor do I give a hoot about them. I only collect autographs from head of state and sportsmen I've known, and worked with all my life. And I never worked for Elvis.

Thanks Jim and Lee. Those of us living and enjoying life in the real world tend to extend our years.
Ian Whyte told me all auctioneers face the usual accusations from anonymous sources everyday.

The fools never turn up at public auctions though. Strange that, isn't it.:-)

So would I, but then I am in possession of knowledge that you are not....But then again Maurice is a lot older than me, so you never know.

The reason they do not show up Morris is because they have some shame an humility. They do not wish to be seen or affiliated with such crap. You should give it a try sometime.
