The Gary Pepper Auction of Elvis Presley Memorabilia brought nearly three times the original estimate, with highlights including two shirts owned by the King selling for $96,800, an inscribed Elvis Presley picture sleeve selling for $10, 370, a pair of sweat stained concert worn scarves sold for $2,318, and an album of original Elvis Presley Polaroids selling for $7,930. A lock of Elvis's hair, expected to sell for much more than its estimate, was a relative bargain at $18,300. The collection of Gary Pepper, a cerebral palsy victim who Elvis befriended early in his career and who became the King's first fan club president, was said by enthusiasts to be one of the most important collections ever to emerge since Elvis’s death.
