Elvis Presley’s Old Paper Cup Sells for Over $3k

All these years after the death of Elvis Presley, he is still one of the most popular entertainers that has ever existed. In fact, he is so popular and was so well-loved that a number of individuals still refuse to believe that he is actually deceased. This is a story that has been going on for decades and in fact, it has existed since his death. Perhaps it all centers around the fact that when someone is as beloved as Elvis, it is just hard to accept the idea that they are no longer with us. For whatever reason, he still has a profound effect on individuals, both old and young.

While Elvis’s music is clearly considered a treasure, many people deem anything he touched worthy of preservation. To drive that point home, he had a paper cup that he once used and it has managed to survive all these decades. Furthermore, it recently sold for $3,000. Can you even begin to imagine a simple paper cup that is considered to be worth any monetary value at all, much less $3,000? The difference is that this particular paper cup was once used by Elvis Presley. It may sound silly to those individuals that aren’t familiar with his work or that don’t collect items from people that are considered icons, but for many individuals, the bigger question is why the cup didn’t sell for more money to begin with.

For certain individuals, there is no amount of money that can be placed on items that were in their position, regardless of what that particular item might be. This is how it is when it comes to Elvis Presley. People aren’t just fans of his work and they don’t just admire him, they consider everything associated with him to be more like a religious experience. The mere fact that he is still so deeply admired after all these years lends credence to the fact that he was considered larger than life when he was performing. The truth is, many people still consider him to be almost superhuman. Perhaps that is one reason why it is so hard for people to believe that he has actually been gone all these years.

When you really stop and think about it, it sort of makes sense that the paper cup sold for so much money when any other cup of the same type would be discarded in the trash without any thought at all. In a nutshell, it is because Elvis Presley used it. He touched it, he drank from it and his hands were on that cup. For those people that still consider him to be that superhuman individual and who truly do consider virtually everything associated him with him to be some type of spiritual experience, it actually makes sense to pay $3,000 for a simple paper cup. Obviously, it has nothing to do with the cup at all. Instead, it has everything to do with Elvis Presley and the person he was.
