Elvis Presley performed in this blue jumpsuit and cape with gold lining at Madison Square Garden on June 10, 1972. The June, 1972 performances at the Garden were the only times that Elvis performed at the famed venue. Elvis also wears the jumpsuit and cape on the cover of his album, “Elvis An Afternoon in the Garden,” the live recording of the performance. The jumpsuit was given to his long-time friend Dottie Rambo of the family group "The Rambo's".  He gave the jumpsuit to Dottie as a birthday present, late February, 1973, in Las Vegas, saying "I never do this, but I want to give you this one because it means so much to me; I wore it at Madison Square Garden." Elvis recorded The Rambo's classic, "If That Isn't Love" on his album "Good Times" and just prior to his untimely death he had signed a contract to record a tribute of his 12 favorite Dottie Rambo songs. Comes with signed and notarized letter from Reba Rambo McGuire, Dottie's daughter, and a 10 x 8 black and white photograph of Dottie and Elvis. Excellent condition. Estimate: $150,000 - $200,000.
