The Observer reports that Elvis mementos are fetching a tenth of their list price as collectors die off and few new ones are coming forward.
‘If you try to sell any Elvis record that could easily have sold for £15-£20 each in the 1980s today, you can hardly give them away,’ says Red, who runs an online Elvis vinyl store.
We are witnessing a similar tendency in the classical sector, where autographed concert programmes, scores and photos are shedding value and trade fairs are poorly attended.
Could it be that the modest collecting hobby is simply dying out?
