A giant collection of Prince's personal belongings was sold at New York City's Hard Rock Café this past Friday during Julien's Auctions' presentation Music Icons: Property From the Life and Career of Prince.
Among the 158 items listed in the catalogue was a purple, stage-worn jumpsuit (sold for $27,500), a ceramic Mardi Gras–style doll that was featured as a prop in Purple Rain (sold for $12,500) and, of course, a raspberry beret with a love-symbol pin (sold for $1,750).
Many of the items were sold for much higher then the value estimated, including the auction's most noteworthy item, Prince's custom-made yellow “cloud” guitar.
According to Rolling Stone, the guitar was estimated to sell for $60,000-$80,000, but went for a whopping $225,000.
Another item that exceeded six digits was Prince's wardrobe from the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards, which sold for over $108,000.
