    More Information: About the original owner: Paul Hochsprung began collecting Elvis Presley items when he was eight years old. He would work for his father (contractor) on weekends for $1 a day, and would take his money to buy Elvis records. He attended two Elvis concerts in Las Vegas, attended Elvis Week in the 1980s, and had "Can't Help Falling in Love" played at his wedding instead of the wedding march. During his honeymoon in 2000 with wife, Debbie, they stayed at The Heartbreak Hotel and visited Graceland. Paul passed away in March 2020, and he requested his Elvis collection be donated to St. Jude's Research Hospital in Memphis.
