Water Secrets Blog reports that several teaspoons of water that Elvis drank from a styrofoam cup at his last concert, three months before his death in 1977, was auctioned on ebay.com and fetched $455, frozen (not including the cup.)
The seller says he was 13 when he snagged the souvenir from the stage at a concert where Elvis drank from the cup.
Jones said he kept the cup and water in his freezer until 1985, when he transferred the water to a vial and sealed it. Over the years, he said, he acquired a photograph of Elvis holding the cup at that concert as authentication for his claim.
He says, it was the $28,000 eBay sale of a 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich in which some people saw the image of the Virgin Mary that persuaded him to auction off his Elvis water.
