Unusual Elvis memorabilia to lead at GWS Auctions

One of the most unusual pieces of Elvis memorabilia ever sold will star in GWS Auctions’ sale in Agoura Hills, California on November 11.

The auction house is offering a 16.5 acre plot of land in Tupelo, opposite Elvis' birthplace (now a museum), where he used to play as a child.

Elvis used to play on this plot of land as a child 

The lot includes a shotgun shack that his mother and father helped build in the 1930s. 

GWS Auctions explains: “A Presley family member says that Elvis played on the land, hunted and used to swim in the creek there, as a child.

“The land has many interesting attributes, as there are a ton of places for a small child to play, explore and escape the world.”

The estimate is $2m-2.5m.  

This isn’t the first time the childhood haunt of a big name has come to auction.

In 2013 John Lennon’s childhood home in the Penny Lane area of Liverpool sold for a massive £480,000 ($631,488) - way above the average house price for the area.

We have an odd bit of Elvis memorabilia for sale. Come and take a look...
