Prince – Stage and Video Worn “Love Symbol” Gloves (From “My Name Is Prince” Video)
A pair of black leather gloves, worn by Prince on stage, during photo shoots, and in the “My Name Is Prince” video. 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, each with a silver metal love symbol, worn by Prince during photo shoots, in concert and in the video for “My Name Is Prince” (they can be seen on the cover of the “My Name Is Prince” 12” single.) 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. (Signed) Joel Bernstein.”
If you’ve read this far, you doubtless know how rare Prince owned and worn artifacts are. This is a 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 “My Name Is Prince” 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.) See our other listings for a pair of Prince’s own Graffiti Bridge cufflinks and a Prince stage worn Batman wristband.
