Prince memorabilia in general, it just really doesn’t exist. It seems like he controlled it all,” Joe Maddalena, president of the auction house Profiles in History, told the AP. “This is the first time ever for something like this, and it might be the only time because the rest of the costumes may be in his (personal) wardrobe.”
According to Profiles in History’s client relations expert Brain Chanes, the auction house received the jacket about six weeks before Prince’s death on 21 April.
