RARE 1968 CHERRY RED HAGSTROM VIKING II GUITAR PLAYED BY ELVIS PRESLEY IN THE LEGENDARY “1968 COMEBACK TV SPECIAL” HITS THE AUCTION BLOCK AT KRUSE GWS AUCTIONS

 The Artifacts of Hollywood & Music Auction is one of the Most Historic Entertainment Memorabilia Auctions to Date. Exclusive Offerings Featured in the sale include Iconic Personal Items from Eric Clapton, Elizabeth Taylor, The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Marilyn Monroe, and Extremely Rare 16mm Film Reels from Woodstock

1950 Cadillac Fleetwood from “The Godfather” Commences a Large Collection of Iconic Cars from Film and Television

Dressed in black leather with his guitar strapped across his chest, Elvis Presley strolled on stage in 1968 to perform in what would become his legendary TV Comeback Special. It was here that the King reclaimed his crown in one of his greatest performances of all time. With Kruse GWS Auctions’ long-standing reputation for offering the most iconic Elvis Presley memorabilia and producing record-breaking auctions in entertainment memorabilia, fine jewelry, iconic fashion, and Royal artifacts, the auction house will exclusively offer the incredible Elvis Presley 1968 Comeback Special Cherry Red Hagstrom Viking II guitar at the Artifacts of Hollywood & Music Auction to be held on Saturday, March 27, 2021 beginning at 10:00 a.m. P.T.

The Hagstrom Viking II guitar was played by the King of Rock and Roll, on December 3, 1968, on NBC Television. This marked the superstar’s return to live performance after seven years when his career was centered on the movie business. The guitar is cherry red with a majestic mother of pearl inlay and is also pictured with Elvis on the cover of his RCA album “From Elvis in Memphis.” There is no other guitar in Elvis Presley’s history that stood for a more monumental moment. The sheet music from the TV special will also be included in the auction. (photo right: Elvis Presley Hagstrom Viking II guitar)

The original special came together when Presley’s manager Col. Tom Parker and producer Bob Finkel formulated a strategy for Presley’s return to live touring. The tour’s launch began with The International Hotel in Las Vegas. The guitar has been exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum and has been in the same collection for almost 30 years.

Of other major historical proportions, there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a varied collection of original 16mm workprint film reels from the 1970 Academy Award-winning Woodstock documentary by Michael Wadleigh. For 50 years, the film has been the primary reference for pop culture historians. It has been deemed as one of the most important films of the era and is revered as such to this day. The lot gives an authentic snapshot of what occurred at Max Yasgur’s field and an extraordinary offering of music’s most celebrated event.

Film and Television Cars included in the auction include:

  • The 1950 Cadillac Fleetwood from the iconic film “The Godfather” and originally owned by Mae West
  • The 2006 Dodge Viper SRT One-of-a-Kind Bravado Banshee from “Grand Theft Auto V”
  • The 1993 Ford Explorer from “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”
  • The 1974 Ford Falcon XB Interceptor from “Mad Max Style”
  • The 1964 Leslie Special from “The Great Race” and others.

From the monumental to the unexpected, the auction celebrates some of the highest-grossing films in entertainment history, music’s most memorable moments, and personal items from screen goddesses and award-winning actors.

“Kruse GWS Auctions is beyond thrilled to exclusively offer one of the most iconic guitars from Elvis Presley’s career – The 1968 Comeback TV Special was groundbreaking for Elvis and was a moment where he solidified and carved out his place in music history. This was truly “Elvis Un-Plugged.” I have dreamed of selling this iconic piece of history for as long as I can remember. This guitar played such a significant role in Elvis’ career and the world once again proclaimed him as the “King,” after his unforgettable performance. Along with many other exceptional artifacts like the original Woodstock film reels, iconic movie, and TV cars as well as other items from the world of music and entertainment, this guitar truly stands alone as one of the most important historical items we have had the honor and privilege of selling.” – Dame Brigitte Kruse, Founder, and Lead Auctioneer, Kruse GWS Auctions.

K Camp RARE Family visual

K Camp – RARE Family

Friday July 3rd, multi-platinum rapper, entrepreneur, executive, and RARE Sound C.E.O. K Camp presented the brand new RARE Sound compilation album, RARE Family. Get it HERE via RARE Sound. The twelve-track surprise project pops off with verbal fireworks from K Camp as well as RARE Sound artists, including True Story Gee, Lil Bird, and more. Among various highlights, the crew trades rhymes with Yella Beezy on the celebratory and slick “Birthday” before delivering hard-hitting bars all around on “Stack N Pray” alongside West Coast phenomenon Mozzy.

Check out the full tracklisting below. Right out of the gate, HipHopDX wrote “K Camp gives his RARE Sound roster a chance to bask in the spotlight,” and RhymeHipHop claimed, “K delivers and displays a cohesive nature to his entire roster, to which each artist flows seamlessly in a shared sound.” Once again, K Camp quietly affirms himself as one of the most impactful talents and bosses in the game through a combination of dynamic rapping and just as dynamic business moves.

The RARE Family release was celebrated at the “RARE Family Cookout” this 4th of July Weekend at the RARE Sound Studios in Atlanta, GA. Stay tuned for a lot more from K Camp very soon.

About K CAMP

It takes a rare talent to elevate the game from multiple angles all at once. As a rapper, entrepreneur, and executive, K CAMP personifies rarity across the board.

Establishing himself as a titan in the Atlanta scene through a knockout combo of clever rhymes and chantable hooks, the multiplatinum star quietly maintains a position amidst hip-hop’s most influential forces. This status remains evidenced by nearly four-billion cumulative streams as well as four gold singles and three platinum singles— “Cut Her Off,” “Money Baby,” and “Comfortable”—since emerging in 2009. Among many accolades, he holds the endorsement of everyone from BET who nominated him for “Best Club Banger” at the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards and XXL who included him in its 2015 “Freshman Class” as well as Rolling Stone, Spin, and many others. The MC’s discography spans the full-length debut Only Way Is Up and 2018’s RARE Sound, which HotNewHipHop dubbed “16 tracks of precious melodies.” Not to mention, he leads a movement as the C.E.O. of his own RARE SOUND label and RARE Studio, office, and headquarters. He continued to light rap up with Wayy 2 Kritical [2019] and Kiss 5 [2020] with more to come.

2015 SHELBY MUSTANG GT350R

RARE 2015 FORD SHELBY MUSTANG GT350R SELLS AT BARRETT-JACKSON TO BENEFIT PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM

Auction Photos By Barrett-Jackson

One of only 37 units ever produced, the Shelby belonged to the museum’s Founding Chairman Bruce Meyer, who has donated all of the proceeds to the Petersen and the Henry Ford Museum

On Friday, January 18, 2019, in front of a packed house and a live television audience, a 2015 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R owned by Petersen Automotive Museum Founding Chairman Bruce Meyer sold for charity at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction. With 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Petersen and the Henry Ford Museum, the rare race spec Mustang hammered with a winning bid of $500,000 and was sold to celebrated collector and museum supporter Ron Pratte.

“The Petersen would not be the global force it is today without the help of Bruce Meyer,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “His tireless dedication and outstanding leadership over the past 25 years is unrivaled, and we are so thankful for his generous contribution to us through the sale of this extraordinary GT350R.”

Before crossing the block as Charity Lot #3006, Meyer’s GT350R showed less than 200 miles on the odometer. Since he took delivery of the car in 2015, Meyer prominently displayed it in his Beverly Hills Garage. His decision to offer the car at auction for charity came from his steadfast support of the Henry Ford Museum and the Petersen, where he serves as Founding Chairman of the Board of Directors and the founder of the Checkered Flag 200—the Petersen’s top-level membership program.  

Ford’s 2015 Shelby GT350R celebrated 50 years of the iconic Mustang by transforming it into an all-out, street-legal track star. Like the 1965 R-model, Ford only produced 37 units of the GT350R. Purchase, however, was restricted to Ford family and VIPs—making ownership an exclusive affair. The car features a 5.2-liter V8 backed by a six-speed manual transmission, producing 526 peak horsepower at 7,500 rpm.

While the GT350R will no longer reside in Meyer’s world-renown collection, a selection of his most important race cars will go on public display at the Petersen in the new exhibit “Winning Numbers: The First, The Fastest, The Famous” opening Saturday, February 23. The exhibit will feature a curated selection of Meyer’s most important motorsport icons, including the first production Shelby Cobra, the Porsche 935 K3 that won Le Mans, the Greer-Black-Prudhomme dragster, two Le Mans-winning Corvettes separated by more than half a century and more.
