Col. Tom Parker Office Tree Log (Lot 111)
Name of Lot: Colonel Tom Parker Office Oak Tree Log
Size: 3 1/2′ x 9′
Brief Description: Certainly one of the more unusual items we have offered, is this massive oak tree log from the tree that towered over Col. Tom Parker’s historic management office in Madison, Tennessee. Folk lore has it that Colonel Tom Parker first met Elvis Presley under this tree, has having been introduced by Hank Snow. Of course masses of new Elvis fans would believe this encounter happened on a ferris wheel at some dusty carnival, based on the recently released “Elvis” movie. The tree was sadly removed when the office compound was dismantled to make way for a car wash. Rockology Auctions President Stephen M. Shutts, recommended saving the wood for historic minded purposes. Ideally the log could milled to utilize as paneling, a piece of furniture, guitars etc. Please contact Rockology Auctions to inspect in person. The tree is pictured and discussed in two reference books, as well as substantiated by two COA’s. The winning bidder is responsible for loading and removing within a 60 day time frame.
Estimated Value: $2000-$3000
