St. Louis' Jon Daly is an avid collector of Elvis Presley memorabilia. His obsession started in 1986 while in in Myrtle Beach, Florida, with his parents, where he saw a figure of Elvis in a wax museum. The young Daly, noting the cape, belt, bell-bottoms and chops, didn't even think Presley was a real person, but rather a superhero. From then, he was hooked. Daly's collection is staggering, with promo photos, records, movie posters, tickets, guitar picks and much more. He was kind enough to show us some of his choicest items.
