The Bible, embossed in gold on a leather cover, was given to Elvis as a present
by his uncle and aunt in 1957
(Fox News) – Elvis’ bible was a hot property at a weekend auction of his memorabilia
in merry old England.
The King of Rock ‘n Roll’s well worn bible, used from 1957 until his death 20 years
later, commanded $94,600, almost double the auction house’s estimate. It included
hand written notes scribbled in the margins.
His unwashed and apparently soiled (!) underwear, worn under his iconic white
jumpsuit in a 1977 concert, failed to meet the $11,000 minimum bid.
