Julien’s Auctions today announced Music Icons and Sports Legends, an unprecedented collection of music and sports memorabilia being offered in a two-day auction, June 23-24, 2012. The historic collection of items to be auctioned include iconic pieces from contemporary stars of Rock-n-Roll to legendary icons and sports heroes who made history.

Also to be auctioned is The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards’ famed "Hell" t-shirt which is being offered for the very first time from the often reclusive artist. The ripped sleeveless white T-shirt toured with Richards during the Rolling Stones 1981 American Tour and was often photographed. The shirt can also be seen in the concert film Let's Spend the Night Together (Est: $1,000-$2,000). Other highlights among the hundreds of items being offered include a very rare opportunity to own pieces of Lady Gaga's personal wardrobe. These include a stage worn vest designed by Vera Thordardottir that the mega-star wore while performing at Elton John's 2010 White Tie and Tiara Ball. Also included is her skirt and blouse set, designed by Toon Geboers that she wore in London in 2010 and as seen in VOGUE Magazine.

Other highlights include a replicated J-45 guitar celebrating Buddy Holly's 75th birthday (Est: $10,000-$20,000). A team of skilled artisans who worked with acclaimed luthier Alister Atkin built the rare acoustic guitar along with artisan Susie Temple who replicated Buddy Holly's own hand tooled leather case. The guitar is known as the “Listen to Me" guitar and was originally created by The Buddy Holly Foundation.  A very limited number were made and this is the only guitar being offered for sale to the public. The other guitars made are on legacy loan to guitar luminaries around the world. The rare guitar sale is a celebratory collaboration between Songmasters and the Buddy Holly Foundation that will benefit The GRAMMY Foundation's GRAMMY Camps.

Also offered is Elvis Presley's custom made jewelry including an E.P. pendant given to him on stage in Las Vegas in 1974. The stunning 14k gold medallion is accented with diamonds (Est: $25,000-$30,000). Presley was always known as being generous with gifts. When his Uncle Vester Presley commented on a ring Presley frequently wore, Elvis gave it to him. This ring made from a star ruby and diamonds is set in a typicAl Gold setting that Elvis was known to love (Est: $10,000-$20,000). Other Elvis items include a classic Stetson fashioned hat made for Elvis and designed by Nudie Cohn in 1969 when he starred in the Western film Charro! (Est: $10,000-$12,000), an authenticated vial of hair from Elvis' personal barber Homer "Gil" Gilleland (Est: $2,000-$4,000) and a very rare 1957 film of Presley performing at a Fort Wayne, Indiana concert giving a glimpse of Elvis' early performances few fans have ever had the opportunity to see (Est. $2,000-$4,000).

More items include an Amy Winehouse personally owned Princesse Tam + Tim robe that the artist wore in her breakout video "Rehab" (Est: $15,000-$17,000), many antique furnishings and personal items from the home of rock-n-roller "Meat Loaf." Many people would be surprised to learn that when the rocker is not on stage he is often found hunting down treasures in antique stores around the world. In addition to some of these treasures, fans will also have the opportunity to own his black, leather jacket worn for a public appearance with Cher on stage with Patricia Russo (Est: $1,000-$2,000) and signed tour road cases used for housing equipment on the road (Est: $600-$800). Over 100 items from the musician who made "Blinded by the Dashboard Light" a worldwide anthem will be offered during the sale.

Additional highlights include a John Lennon spare suit from the film "Hard Day's Night (Est: $4,000-$6,000), a John Lennon signed and inscribed New Year's Card (1977/1978) from John, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon with caricatures drawn of the three of them (Est: $3,000-$5,000), a John Lennon signed Rolls Royce registration card dated June 3, 1965 (Est: $20,000-$30,000), ephemera from George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney and Wings, a Beatles Platinum Record award for Yellow Submarine (Est: $1,000-$2,000), a Beatles signed 1963 Swedish promotional poster (Est: $6,000 -$8,000), Mick Jagger's stage worn tail coat from the 1989-1990 Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle tour ($1,000-$2,000), a Grateful Dead original Family Dog poster FD-26 (Est: $3,000-$5,000) and a very special Delaney Bramlett vintage 1913 Gibson style O guitar owned by Bramlett (Est: $4,000-$6,000).

And, as only an auction house like Julien's can do, a curated collection of unique items from Michael Jackson dating from his earliest career to his final rehearsals will also be offered at Music Icons.  The assembled collection include Jackson's Apollo Theatre performance worn fedora (Est: $8,000-$10,000), a 1984 MTV Viewer's Choice Moon Man Statue presented to Jackson (Est: $8,000-$10,000), Jackson's handwritten "Morphine" lyrics (Est: $2,000-$4,000), a Michael Jackson signed drawing (Est: $800-$1,200), a handwritten note to Lisa Marie Presley by Jackson (Est: $800-$1,200) and many other items that include a history of both his personal and professional life.

Among the more unusual items to go up on the auction block is the Elvis Presley original crypt. On August 18, 1977 Elvis Presley’s funeral was held at Graceland with 200 close friends and family members.  After the funeral, there was a procession to Forest Hill Cemetery where Elvis was entombed in a private mausoleum crypt.  Elvis’ father, Vernon Presley, wanted to inter Elvis and his wife, Gladys Presley, at Graceland but needed time to get permission from the state of Tennessee for their burial on private grounds.   While waiting for burial permits Gladys Presley was dis-interred and also laid to rest in the mausoleum vault with Elvis.  Within two months both Elvis and his mother were moved to their permanent graves in the meditation garden on the grounds of Graceland.

This original crypt has remained empty with a statue of Elvis commemorating his time there and as a visiting place for those coming to remember The King.  Offered here is the opportunity to purchase the crypt for burial.  The crypt lies within the granite and marble mausoleum of the Forest Hill Cemetery.  This lot includes: the crypt where Elvis was once entombed; opening and closing of the vault and crypt for burial; memorial inscription; and use of a small chapel for a committal service.  Transportation and funeral home charges are not included.

Registration is required to bid in this live auction and can be done in person at the exhibition and auction, or online before the sale at the www.JuliensAuctions.com Registration page to bid by phone, proxy or in person, or online at JuliensLive.com to bid live online, or by calling (310) 836-1818.

Michael Jackson’s desperate letter to Lisa Marie goes on sale (and you can buy Whitney Houston’s passport too)
By MIKE LARKIN
PUBLISHED: 01:08 GMT, 30 May 2012 | UPDATED: 19:24 GMT, 30 May 2012


It has long been known Michael Jackson was leading a traumatic existence before his premature death.
But a newly released letter to his former wife Lisa Marie Presley casts even more light on how he was struggling with the pressures of being one of the world's best known celebrities.
The fragile Prince of Pop revealed he had not slept for days and needed to 'take care of my health first' in the document, which has been put up for auction.

n a schoolchild-style scrawl, he wrote: 'I truly need this rest. I haven't slept literally in four days now.
'I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first.'
He also told his lover he was 'crazy' for her, and signed off under his pet name Turd.
Readers are given a sense of the warmth between the pair during their marriage, which lasted from 1994to 1996, from the letter.

The highly personal message is predicted to fetch up to $1,200 when it goes under the hammer at the Julien's Auctions sale in Beverly Hills next month.
It is one of a host of fascinating items that are up for sale during the two day celebrity memorabilia extravaganza.

Another interesting piece on the list is one of Whitney Houston's old passports.

Given she died just three months ago, some will be wondering if it is too early for such personal items to be on sale.
But money talks in Hollywood, and the early days passport, which was valid from 1979 and expired in 1984, is sure to attract plenty of interest.

Given it is a high profile item, it was never likely to go cheap, and it is expected to make up to $6,000.
It will be a boon for fans of the star, as it is signed by the music idol on the biography page, as well as on the photograph.
It shows she was already well travelled at a young age, as it Includes stamps from Japan, Jamaica, St. Maarten, the Dominican Republic, Curacao, as well as visas from the land of the rising sun and Jamaica.

Keeping up the morbid atmosphere, the robe Amy Winehouse wore in the video of her hit Rehab is also for sale.
The Princesse Tam + Tam garment was hand-picked by Winehouse and the director Phil Griffin for the film.
Due to its special one-of-a-kind nature, it is listed with a sale price of $16,000 at the high end, though it could potentially go for even more.

This is especially true given the great outpouring of grief that followed her death from alcohol poisoning last July.
Buyers will be trying to keep a Poker Face when the Lady Gaga lot goes under the hammer.
For the dress she wore for an appearance in Vogue is believed to be worth between $10,000 and $20,000, and frugal collectors will be hoping to have as low a winning bid as possible.

They may have more luck in buying a Vera Thordardottir dress she wore  while performing at Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball in 2010.
The white outfit is expected to receive bids of up to $6,000.

Meanwhile a celebrity auction would not be the same if it did not have some Elvis memoribilia.
This one is no exception, and this time a  brown Stetson hat he wore in 1969 film Charro, which was made by Nudie Cohn, is up for sale.

MICHAEL JACKSON Letter Yanked from Auction
5/30/2012 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


A letter Michael Jackson wrote to Lisa Marie Presley -- complaining about the problem that ultimately killed the singer -- has been yanked from the auction block after Lisa Marie pitched a fit.

Lisa Marie has not said why she wanted the letter pulled, but it's pretty clear -- Michael struggled with sleep deprivation for years until he found a quick fix in the form of Propofol.

The letter -- written sometime between 1993 and 1996, reads as follows: "Smell here [arrow with box] Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and Business people. I must take care of my health first Im' [sic] crazy for you Love Turd."

As TMZ first reported, Jackson was doctor shopping for Propofol before he hooked up with Conrad Murray.

So Julien's Auction in Beverly Hills -- the same company selling off Elvis' crypt -- has capitulated to Elvis' daughter. Owner Darren Julien tells TMZ, "I'm assuming it's a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley."

We can read between the lines.

Michael Jackson's sleepless note pulled from auction
LOS ANGELES | Wed May 30, 2012 6:26pm EDT


(Reuters) - A note written by Michael Jackson in which he complains of being unable to sleep has been withdrawn from auction at the request of the late singer's ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, the auction house said on Wednesday.

Jackson, who died in 2009 after asking his doctor to give him a powerful anesthetic to help him sleep, wrote the note to Presley sometime between 1993-1996, when they were close friends. The two later became husband and wife.

"Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally (sic) in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first Im'(sic) crazy for you," reads the handwritten note, scrawled on yellow paper.

Julien's Auctions, which had listed the letter in an upcoming celebrity memorabilia sale, said on Wednesday it pulled the note from its Music Icons auction on June 23rd and 24th at Presley's request.

"I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature, and we want to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley," chief executive Darren Julien said.

The "Thriller" singer had struggled with insomnia for several years while alive. His personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, told police shortly after Jackson's death that the 50-year-old pop star pleaded for help sleeping during a long, restless night at his home on June 25, 2009, the day he died.

Murray was convicted last year of involuntary manslaughter after delivering a fatal dose of propofol - normally used to sedate patients for surgery - and a cocktail of sedatives to Jackson.
