Prince – Owned and Stage Worn Black Leather Gloves With Full Authentication
A pair of black leather gloves, worn by Prince on stage and during photo shoots. We acquired these from Prince’s former guitar technician, Joel Bernstein, who details their history in his included letter of authenticity, quoted here:
“This letter is to authenticate a pair of black leather gloves worn by Prince during vaious photo shoots and in concert, circa 1987-1988. These can be seen in numerous photographs, including the session for the cover of the Thieves In The Temple 12”.
I worked with Prince from 1987 through 1991, as his personal guitar technician for concerts and recording, and occasionally as his photographer. This period included Sign O’ The Times, Lovesexy, the Batman soundtrack, and My Name is Prince. These are from my personal collection. Joel Bernstein.”
If you’ve read this far, you doubtless know how rare Prince owned and worn artifacts are. These are a great pair of gloves, with impeccable provenance. Bernstein, a highly respected photographer, has worked with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and many others (see screen shot with his credit for the Sign o’ The Times movie.)
Included is a copy of the Thieves In The Temple 12” single, Bernstein’s letter of authenticity, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity (Recordmecca owner Jeff Gold worked extensively with Prince, art directing a number of his album covers, and will sign the letter of authenticity personally.)
