TMZ broke a story today about a seller on eBay auctioning off a dixie cup that they claim was used by Elvis Presley 62 years ago. The seller claims that Presley drank from the cup at 10:30 a.m on April 19th, 1956 in Tulsa, Oklahoma after performing a concert in the city the night before.
The seller claims to have a letter of authenticity to prove the cup was used by Presley. They also say it’s been kept in the same box since 1956, and they have a notebook full of research related to the events surrounding the cup.
There even appears to be a signature from Presley on the cup.
While the person does seem to present plenty of evidence that Presley was in Tulsa on April 18th and 19th, we cannot 100 percent say whether or not the cup was actually used by the King. That is a decision you will have to make for yourself.
If you’re interested, the auction for the cup will last for another five days until this Sunday. Currently, the highest bid for the cup is $860, and the seller hopes to get over $1,000 for it.
Here is the link to the paper cup for those interested.
