“The largest Elvis collection outside of Graceland”

Mike L. Moon began collecting Elvis memorabilia in 1971. He accompanied J.D. Sumner, bass singer and leader of the Stamps Quartet, to a party Elvis hosted following a Las Vegas performance. When Mr. Moon was introduced to Elvis that evening, he complimented Elvis on the black leather belt he was wearing. Elvis took the belt from his waist and handed it to Mr. Moon. This generous act made a lasting impression, and Mr. Moon became an avid follower and fan, collecting authentic Elvis memorabilia as opportunities arose. Upon Elvis’ death in 1977, J.D. Sumner encouraged Mr. Moon to open the first Elvis Presley Museum beyond the gates of Graceland . Other members of Elvis’ entourage made items available to Mr. Moon, including Charlie Hodge, Ed Enoch, Buck Buckles, Billy Smith, Marty Lacker and Sonny West. The original museum, right here in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee , opened in 1979. Mr. Moon devoted much of the next two decades expanding his collection to its prestigious title of “World’s Largest Private Collection of Elvis Memorabilia”. Mr. Moon’s collection now belongs to his daughter, Lynn Moon McAllister, her husband, Donald, and their children, Sunni and Skyler. The Moon Family is proud to make this priceless collection available to you...the loyal and devoted fans who Elvis lived to sing for.
