Paul Stanley 1977 Stage Worn Costume On eBay

Listed on eBay is an original Paul Stanley stage worn jumpsuit from the 1977 Rock and Roll Over Tour. Here's the auction description:

The jumpsuit was originally purchased from the June, 2000 Butterfields Kiss Auction. You can see the original auction listing in the Kiss Auction Catalog page 160, Lot #1792. The lot was sold as the complete costume, however this auction is for the jumpsuit only. There are three known jumpsuits that were made for Paul for that tour. Besides this one, I know of only one other that is in collectors private collections. I purchased this jumpsuit from a very well known high end Kiss collector. He has the other jumpsuit, and purchased this lot to complete it. He kept the boots, belt and opera gloves, and sold this jumpsuit to me. I can disclose the provenance of the jumpsuit to serious buyers.

The jumpsuit is in good condition and shows signs of wear by Paul. There are some rhinestones that have fallen off from use, and there is wear on the shoulder from Paul's guitar strap. I have included a photo of the jumpsuit on display at the official 1995 Kiss Convention in Indianapolis back in July, 1995. I've also included a scan of the original Butterfields Auction listing.
