Prince stage worn costume

In February 2016, Prince’s first wife, Mayte Garcia, came over our office and consigned her whole collection of Prince stage worn costume lots to us.  In March 2016, we ran the auction, with a massive amount of press including “Rolling Stone” covering the auction especially the Prince stage worn costume lots.  Two things happened.  First, nobody was that interested.  Second, Prince sued us and Mayte, claiming that she did not have legal possession of the Prince stage worn costume lots.  We agreed to pull the auction and let Prince deal with Mayte to figure out the ownership issues.  We did find out that in Minnesota where Prince divorced Mayte that supposedly when the marriage breaks up, whoever ends up with whatever keeps those items, probably making it difficult for Prince to win his case if he was going to continue to sue Mayte.  Then, one month later, Prince died, and Mayte got to keep the Prince stage worn costume lots for herself.  After Prince died, everybody decided they wanted to collect Prince stage worn costume lots plus everything else Prince memorabilia, and if we had auctioned them again, after his death, they would have sold for a mega-fortune.  Here are some of the Prince stage worn costume lots:
