Elvis Presley fans have one more day to pick up items from the Gotta Have It Collectibles auction of Elvis memorabilia. The top item, still without a bid the last time I checked, is Elvis Presley's white Wm. Knabe & Co. grand piano which he used at Graceland from 1957 to 1969 (which is when Priscilla bought him a new gold-leaf covered one). The piano was used in Memphis' Ellis Auditorium from the 1930s to 1957 and has also been played by other famous musicians including W.C. Handy, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Cab Calloway. It has a minimum bid of $500,000 and is estimated to sell for $750,000 - $1,000,000.
Presley's blue jumpsuit and cape with gold lining which he performed in at Madison Square Garden in 1972 is $100,000 and currently has oen bid. Not all of the items are so expensive. Pants Elvis wore start around $1,000 and pieces of Elvis Presley merchandise from the 1950s through the 1970s and Elvis albums start at just $10.
