The last weekend in October marks a special time at Graceland - the Grand Opening Weekend of The Guest House at Graceland. Just steps from the gates of Graceland Mansion, this new luxury hotel is a dream realized for Elvis Presley, who adored entertaining guests at his home. Inspired by the same Southern hospitality that Elvis was known for, this world class hotel features a host of contemporary amenities, two full-service restaurants, a 464 seat theater, conference and event facilities, and so much more. One of the first events to be held in the new, state-of-the-art theater during this celebration weekend, will be the Auction at Graceland on October 29, 2016. This will be a chance for Elvis fans and collectors from around the world to gather, to bid, win and take home an artifact that once belonged, was worn, is signed or was used to promote Elvis Presley, the undisputed King of Rock ’n Roll.
Graceland Auctions is once again honored to celebrate the life and career of Elvis Presley by offering an amazing array of artifacts from both Elvis’ motion picture and musical careers, as well as remarkable personal tokens and gifts.
The auction features the one and only “Aqua Blue Vine” Jumpsuit, Elvis’ full set of fingerprints on an original 1970 Beverly Hills Police Department fingerprint card, a plethora of Elvis personally owned and worn jewelry including a sparkling collection of rings, an historic collection of Sun Records artifacts from members of the “Million Dollar Quartet" and so much more!
