"Prince's musical and cultural impact (cannot) be overstated," Heritage Auctions Consignment Director Mike Gutierrez said in the release."He was a brilliant musician, singer, composer, director. Anything relating to Prince has significant appeal to collectors, but to have lots like this, that he owned and wore represents (an) extraordinary trove of treasures from one of the great musical influencers of our generation."

Prince died of an accidental overdose in 2016 at Paisley Park in Chanhassen.
