auction article has interesting justification for selling his stuff...

https://www.nbcnews.com/p...ry-n874361

A couple of things stood out. Picture of the two guys standing next to his clothes makes him look SOOOOOOOO tiny.

Interesting quotes from article....


Prince’s former wife, Mayte Garcia, has consigned a majority of the items and will receive a large portion of the proceeds. A portion will also go to Mayte’s Rescue and to the Love 4 One Another charity that she and Prince started.

She better give a lot more than 1% or 5% to those charities. I believe she only gave either 1 or 5% of her book proceeds to Mayte's Rescue. I am assuming that she never owned the UTCM outfits or the guitars...

And this justification for selling his stuff from the auctioneer...

Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien's Auctions, said Prince was private and his music and clothing were a shelter for him. But the singer wanted to become famous, and the worldwide brand that carries his name is his legacy.

"He isn't performing anymore, so the next best thing is to own something tangible from his career," Nolan said.

Actually the next best thing to seeing him perform is buying his music and hopefully buying his live performances. I hope the estate gets on that...becuase that is what he should be known for..not a source for collectibles.

Keep in mind that the UTC outfits where probably made in duplicate if not more. Prince learned this from Purple Rain movie. 1)to perform in 2)one for photo shoots 3)one or two more 2 film in.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment
