"Marty Lacker was with and close to Elvis Presley for twenty years and was his right hand man and Foreman of the Memphis Mafia for a number of years and Co-Best Man at his wedding. "
"When a fan a few days ago mentioned to Marty about the guy selling a pair of Elvis' socks for the ridiculous price of $3000 it reminded him that he has a pair of very warm,heavy duty socks that Elvis wore on a few very cold snowy days they sometimes had in Memphis especially in '68 when they had 14 inches of snow and they spent almost every day on the front lawn of Graceland in it all messing around. There was so much snow that E.P Blvd. was basically closed to traffic until the snow started to dissipate Elvis also told Marty that he wore them in Vail,Colorado in the 70's when he went there on vacation and he rode snowmobiles in the deep Vail snow. Marty got them from Elvis in the 70's when he cleaned his closet out one day throwing things out and he handed Marty a box with a few things including the socks. Marty forgot he had them as he had put the box in his closet and forgot it since then. His original thought back then was to just throw them out because back then he never thought of getting something of Elvis' to sell. The reason he kept them is because from time to time someone from a Memphis charity would ask him if he could get something from Elvis so they could auction them off in their charity drives. He had done that two or three times with Memphis charities in the past and this way he didn't have to go to Elvis each time he was asked. "
"However since he still has two medical bills he needs to take care,he has said it seems like they keep accruing in his old age,so he thought he'd sell them to go towards the bills. They don't do him any good just sitting in the box in his closet."
Marty will gladly add a COA with them.
