(Reuters) - A bible which once belonged to Elvis Presley and contains his handwritten notes and thoughts has sold for 59,000 pounds ($94,600) at an auction in England, the auction house said.
The bible, given to the singer on his first Christmas at his home in Graceland in 1957, was bought by an American man based in Britain, Omega Auctions said on its website.
The religious book, used by Presley until his death on August 16, 1977, was expected to fetch around 25,000 pounds but went for more than double its value.
But a pair of Presley's unwashed and soiled underpants, worn underneath his famous white jumpsuit during a 1977 concert, went unsold.

But a pair of Presley’s unwashed and soiled underpants, worn underneath his famous white jumpsuit during a 1977 concert, went unsold........................................ They’ll sell on eBay.
Any chance they could be used to clone him?
Stuff like that sells on Ebanned, assuming it still exists/
EBanned was a site devised strictly to get rid of marginal stuff
like that, that Ebay’s policies would not allow.
I am not sure it even exists anymore.
But anyone who might have Elvis’s underwear to sell, would
not even try Ebanned, unless he was willing to settle for a couple hundred dollars.
I notice Reuters used a lower-case “b”. Wonder if they would also use a lower-case “k”, as in “koran”?

...good catch! And you’re right. The “K” would’ve been capitalized in all it’s glory to capture the respect a religion of peace should! ~sarc
“But a pair of Presley’s unwashed and soiled underpants, worn underneath his famous white jumpsuit during a 1977 concert, went unsold.”
What! None of his rabid fans wanted to make soup?
Description: Bible is in terrific shape, rarely (if ever) used.
They should take the drawers to pawn stars..
Rick Harrison doesn’t “touch” stuff like that.
Oh yeah I checked and found that Ebanned still does exist,
and they’re peddling some really stinky stuff.
With the word "Holy" in front of it.
Have to rethink this business plan.
DNA, DNA! We could clone Elvis from the DNA found in his adult diapers!
