The crypt where Elvis Presley was first laid to rest can be yours when it goes to auction next month. But don’t expect it to go for a song.
Located at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, the crypt will be sold June 23 as part of a “Sports Legends and Music Icons” auction. Almost 1,000 other items will also be sold, including signed sunglasses belonging to Yoko Ono, costumes worn by the Jackson 5 and two pairs of Bette Midler’s boots.
The bidding for the crypt begins at $100,000. According to the Associated Press, the winner will also receive “opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorialization inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service.”
Presley, simply known as “The King,” died at his Memphis home Graceland in August 1977. The singer’s body was kept at the crypt for two months until it was moved to Graceland’s meditation garden.
