Elton’s sunglasses are part of a assortment, owned by Florida property developer Anthony Pugliese, which has been valued at more than $5m.
The items–850 in all–are going on the auction block this month in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Other memorabilia ranges from the pointed hat worn by the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz to the gun Jack Ruby used to shoot Lee Harvey Oswald.
“This collection is as good as it gets,” said Arlan Ettinger, president of the Guernsey’s auction house.
“Most collections have one or two great things and then things trail off from there. This collection, there would have to be 100 items here, any one of which would be a star attraction anywhere else.”
The items will go under the hammer at the Palms Resort and Casino on March 15 and 16.
