    What's cooler than your copy of "Purple Rain" on vinyl? Try owning one of Prince's personal copies on vinyl!!
    Some 27 items previously owned by Prince are hitting the auction block -- thanks to The Purple One's old bodyguard -- and the memorabilia is expected to fetch several thousand bucks. For instance, the starting bid for the record alone is $1,500.
    One of Prince's Jehovah's Witness Bibles is also in the lot, and is expected to fetch $7k. But the crown jewel of the collection has to be Prince's navy silk suit ... which has a starting bid of $10k!
    The auction also includes some of his wedged shoes, cuff links, an ear cuff, a pair of sunglasses and a bunch of Prince's old backstage passes.
    Heritage Auctions is behind the online auction ... and bids close July 21.

    Get yer bids in!

    *pssst....I know where you can get a "free" copy of the NWT - the only thing it will cost you is your entire circle of family and friends. And a "small" contribution to the org. And maybe your life if you happen to bleed too much

    He didn't have the Silver Sword?

    What is with the strange name printed at the bottom?

    It is probably the silver sword, just in one of those personalized zipper covers with his name or something engraved. Whatever it says, for some reason they blocked it out. Looking closely though, it doesn't appear to say "Prince Nelson", so if it isn't his name I don't know what it says.

    I would not pay a dime for it.

    May be the name of whosoever gave it him...perhaps a close friend.

    Their wont be any shortages of J.W.`s that will be bidding for that Bible owned by Prince himself.

    Mark my words.

    Such is the Cult of celebrity`s among Jehovah`s Witnesses

    Wonder if old Marc Sanderson will bid so he can put it in the shiny new Warwick Bible exhibit!
