The Elvis Wart

One of the 30,000 Elvis items in Joni Mabe's Panoramic Encyclopedia of Everything Elvis on display at the Loudermilk Boarding House Museum. Removed from his right wrist in 1958.

[Joni, 08/22/2001]

The wart is kept in a jar of formaldehyde. Joni sells t-shirts proclaiming, "The King is Gone, But the Wart Lives On." She also has a toenail that possibly belonged to Elvis, which she plucked out of a carpet on a visit to Graceland.

Elvis-themed slumber chamber.

Elvis Shrine and Elvis Toenail

Shannon Shepherd's Jan 1997 El Dorado tip hints that "an Elvis Museum somewhere in the carolinas -- features a mysterious toenail found in the carpet at Graceland just after it opened."

The last time I saw the elusive "Elvis Toenail" was 5 or 6 years ago as part of Joni Mabe's travelling Elvis Shrine. It's mentioned, along with Elvis' wart, in her book.
