On Saturday there was another Auction at Graceland, with personal possessions of Elvis Presley up for sale, consisting of weapons, charge card, clothing and precious jewelry. Elvis Presley Enterprises held the Auction at Graceland in celebration of Elvis Presley’s birthday and as part of a weekend of celebrations. It was also the sixth Elvis Presley sale from Graceland Auctions. In 2014, Graceland Auctions launched their authentication services.
The bidding on Saturday’s Auction at Graceland started with a 1953 Humes High School year book which had actually been signed by Elvis Presley. This yearbook with Presley’s signature sold for $4,000. A terrific part of the auction’s focus was on “larger ticket” items, most notably a fashion jewelry collection which Elvis Presley gave as a present to his assistant and excellent buddy Charlie Hodge.
