Elvis Presley's Tomb Gears Up For Auction
We've heard a lot of crazy stories in our day, but this one takes the cake. Um, more like crypt.
The entrance to a private crypt that previously was the home to Elvis Presley's deceased body will be auctioned off next month. In 1977 it was the temporary resting place of his body for approximately two months before he was buried at Graceland.

Darren Julien, president of Julien's Auctions, told The New York Times, "I just consider that if you're an ultimate fan of Elvis Presley, it's an opportunity." He added, "It's definitely a conversation piece. Only one person can say, 'Hey, I'm going to be buried where Elvis Presley was.'"

The auction will be held on June 23 and 24, with a starting price of $100,000! The winning bidder will get the opening and closing of the vault, crypt for burial, a memorial inscription, and the use of the chapel for a committal service.
The mausoleum at the First Hills Cemetery in Memphis won't be the only item up for grabs. Among other celeb artifacts up for auction: A robe worn by Amy Winehouse in her "Rehab" video; a cigarette packet autographed by the Beatles; and Chinese ceramic dogs from Meatloaf's collection.
