Get ready, Elvis fans. Your chance to own a little bit of the King rolls around again in a few weeks as part of the four-day Elvis Birthday Celebration at Graceland, his Memphis estate.

Twice a year, in August during events surrounding his death and again each January as part of birthday activities, Graceland auctions off a selection of Elvis artifacts in both live and online bidding.

January’s birthday week auction will take place Jan. 8 beginning at 12:30 p.m. CST in the theater at The Guest House at Graceland.

Among the items up for grabs this time?

  • The original sale agreement for Graceland
  • A red velvet shirt worn by Elvis, likely onstage, at his famous Tupelo homecoming concert in 1956
  • An original 1955 concert poster
  • A check signed by Elvis

  • Elvis jewelry, including a TCB necklace given to him by Dr. George Nichopoulos, or Dr. Nick, who was Elvis’ personal physician.
