'The Auction at Graceland' to Feature 'Viva Las Vegas' Wardrobe

The third auction of rare and authentic Elvis Presley artifacts and memorabilia will be held during Elvis Week 2015, featuring an impressive 174 lots, making it the largest and most comprehensive auction yet held on the grounds of Graceland. The Auction at Graceland will take place in the Graceland Archives Studio on Thursday, August 13, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. EDT/7:00 p.m. CDT.

Fans, music collectors and pop culture enthusiasts from around the world are expected to participate on site and online in this unprecedented auction, with all 174 lots expertly authenticated by the staff of Graceland Authenticated. All of the items in the auction will be offered from third-party collectors and none of the items included in the auction will come from the treasured Graceland Archives. The mansion and all artifacts in the Graceland Archives continue to be owned by Lisa Marie Presley and are not for sale. Graceland Authenticated sets a new standard for pop culture authentication and appraisal to ensure artifact accuracy and provide evaluations of privately-owned collections.

Previous Graceland Auctions have generated far greater bids than projected. In early 2015, the acetate featuring the first-known recording of Elvis Presley singing “My Happiness” recorded at Memphis Recording Service (home of Sun Records) sold for $300,000.  Elvis’ 1977 Cadillac Seville sold for $81,250 along with a bullet-riddled shooting target from the Graceland smokehouse, which sold for $27,500 in August of last year.  

Among the 174 items to be included in the August 13 auction, notable items include:

  • Elvis Presley Jacket from the “Viva Las Vegas” dance scene with Ann-Margret  (Estimated $30,000-50,000)

  • "TCB" Diamond and Gold Necklace gifted to Sammy Davis Jr. by Elvis Presley (Estimated $20,000-30,000)

  • Elvis Presley-Owned Gold Owl-Shaped Ring gifted to a fan from the stage (Estimated $15,000-20,000) 

  • “Million Dollar Quartet” Signed Guitar featuring the signatures of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins & Jerry Lee Lewis (Estimated $20,000-30,000)

  • Elvis Presley's Personal Walther Model PPK/S 9mm Kurz Handgun - Ornately Engraved "Elvis" and “TCB" (Estimated $100,000–125,000)

The auction lots can be viewed at the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum at Graceland in Memphis starting July 21 through August 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT.

The Auction at Graceland collectible catalog is now available to order at ShopGraceland.com and features more than 150 pages, including photos and details of all the auction items.  This exclusive catalog offers an up-close look at these special pieces of Elvis history and is a wonderful collector’s item.

Tickets will be available for purchase at Graceland on August 13 at the Graceland ticket pavilion between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. CDT.
