Prince Concert-Worn Glove for Sale

In this month’s auction on April 26th 2018 we have a Prince concert-worn glove from his ‘Purple Rain’ tour in 1984. Here is the description:

Prince Worn Lace Glove From His ”Purple Rain” Concert in 1984

Prince concert-worn glove from his iconic ”Purple Rain” tour in 1984. A signature white lace glove adorned with rhinestones, Prince wore this glove during his performance on 15 December 1984 at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky before he tossed it into the audience. Glove is accompanied by a notarized letter from a contractor at Rupp Arena, who writes, ”…I was part of the set up and breakdown team – I’ve included my tax records to prove my employment at Rupp Arena…During the show Prince went up a twenty foot staircase to the scaffolding on the side of the stage while performing and took off and threw one of his gloves towards the audience. It didn’t reach the audience though – I watched the glove fall out of sight into the scaffolding below him. After the show, I kept an eye out for the glove as I was breaking down the lighting scaffolding in the area Prince threw it and sure enough, there it was…” As indicated in his letter, the consignor has included a copy of his 1099 record from 1985 showing his employment with IATSE Local 346 representing the Lexington area. Right-handed lace glove measures approximately 8” long including ruffle at bottom, and 6” at the wrist. Some age discoloration, partial tear at the ruffle and rhinestone chain, while present, has separated in two spots. Overall in good condition, consistent with wear. Minimum bid $5,000.

We at Nate D. Sanders Auctions (http://www.NateDSanders.com), also sold a Prince concert-worn glove from October 1984. Here is the description:

Prince Concert-Worn White Lace Glove From 1984 — Along With Guitar String That Prince Used

Prince worn white lace glove from October 1984, shortly after ”Purple Rain” played in theaters. Lot also includes a guitar string from a guitar that Prince played on the night of 25 October 1984 at the 7th Street Entry, a well known Minneapolis concert venue. That night, a local band called The PedalJets played at the Entry, who were surprised, along with the rest of the audience, by an impromptu performance by Prince. Prince closed the venue off to only those who were in the audience for The PedalJets’ performance, and used their equipment to do his set. As a memento, Prince gave his left glove to Scott Mize, lead guitarist for the PedalJets, whose LOA accompanies this lot as does a newspaper article from 31 October 1984 entitled ”PedalJets got no photos but kept Prince’s white glove”. Scott Mize is referenced in the article as the band’s lead guitar player. Lot is also accompanied by an audio recording of Prince’s concert that night, running approximately 1/2 hour, with Prince even referencing the band at the beginning. Lace glove fits the left hand and measures approximately 8” long and 3” at the wrist. Some soiling from wear at the fingertips, but in otherwise near fine condition. A nice, personal Prince memento at the height of his stardom. Sold for $8924.
