The King of Rock 'n' Roll returns... for his biggest memorabilia auction yet

Saturday August 14 promises to be an extra special day for Elvis fans.

As previously reported here, 149 Union Avenue in Memphis Tennessee will host the auction of some of the most significant Elvis memorabilia in existence.

Collectibles up for auction will include personal items like jewellery, rare acetate recordings, previously private documents and memorabilia from his Graceland home.

Among the highlights is a 1976 Triumph TR-6 Convertible which was originally gifted to his partner, Ginger Alden, and the famous Custom Hold framed Sunglasses which became synonymous with "The King."

Elsewhere, a number of fascinating autographed documents will be available for collectors to purchase.

For example the purchase agreement for Elvis Presley's Graceland family home will be up for sale. With other Graceland paperwork recently selling for an impressive price at auction, this signed document could prove to be highly popular at the event.

But one document sure to drum up interest is the famous RCA Records contract signed by Presley in 1955.

The document also includes the additional autographs of his father and Colonel Tom Parker, his famous manager. 

The four page document features the Radio Corporation of America Record Department letterhead and is dated November 15 1955.

However, the "undisputed King" of the auction could well be the classic White Knabe Grand Piano and Bench which was a beloved part of the Presley's home in Graceland from 1957 to 1969.

The remarkable piano, which is refinished in white with a gold trim, is valued at over $1m, with bids opening at $500,000.

With the sale set to begin at 5.00pm CST, and online bidding available throughout, you can keep up to date with all the latest news from the sale here.
