I’m not sure if this is what “the King” was referring to when he wrote ”Pieces of My Life,” but you can buy a pair of his stained underwear at an auction in England next month. Well, at least we finally know that he preferred briefs over boxers.
The dirty, dust blue drawers, which Presley wore underneath one of his famous white jumpsuits during a 1977 performance, are expected to fetch up to $15,800, according to the BBC.
The other items on the Elvis pop memorabilia auction block are more sanitary and sentimental: The music legend’s Bible, complete with handwritten notes, and 16mm home movie footage shot by Priscilla Presley. Omega Auctions will stream the auction live on Sept. 8.
Presley died 35 years ago this month, on Aug. 16, 1977.
