Elvis Merchandise Auction at Graceland August 13th 2015

Invaluable, the premiere online auction marketplace, and Graceland Auctions, will be teaming up on August 13 to auction off 174 lots of exceptional antique Elvis merchandise making it the largest and most comprehensive auction yet held on the grounds of Graceland. Whether you are looking for a stage-worn jumpsuit or a piece of 1950's merchandising, a historical document or a rare test pressing, a TCB necklace or a movie artifact, this auction has something for you! 

This auction, The Auction At Graceland, starts at 7:00 PM CST on the 13th. 

Elvis touched the hearts and lives of fans across the globe, and the goal for the Elvis Week 2015 Auction at Graceland is to include artifacts from across the spectrum of collecting, including items owned by Elvis, gifted by Elvis, written by Elvis, used by Elvis and created to promote the king and his career.

Here are a few lots for example:

Lot 85: Elvis Presley Jacket from the Viva Las Vegas Dance Scene with Ann-Margret (see above)
Estimated Price: $30,000 - $50,000
The offered jacket is one of two created by Sy Devore, noted Hollywood wardrobe designer, for Elvis Presley to wear during this now legendary dance scene with Ann-Margret in the 1964 MGM classic Viva Las Vegas.

Lot 118: September 11, 1970 Elvis Presley "In Person" Concert Poster

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000
Used to promote stops on Elvis Presley's September 1970 tour, these venue-specific posters are few and far between, especially in such an exemplary state of preservation. In true Colonel style, the upper portion, graced by Elvis' iconic portrait, was kept purposely generic and was printed on lighter weight paper in greater quantities. These could be used or sold anywhere Elvis was touring.

Lot 112: 1970 Elvis Presley Signed Oversized Concert Souvenir Photo

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $4,000
This rare 1970 promotional photo has been signed by Elvis "To Diane Best Wishes Elvis Presley." Always the conscientious singer, Elvis saw fit to find the lightest area of the photo leaving a very readable result.
