Elvis Presley's original crypt in Memphis, Tenn. is slated to hit the auction block late next month. Bidding for the burial spot will start at the modest price of $100,000 but chances are not to stay there for very long.
Beverly Hills celebrity auctioneers Julien's Auctions announced last week that they will be auctioning off Elvis Presley's original resting place at Forest Hill Cemetery next month. The tomb is scheduled to be auctioned as part of Julien's Auctions "Music Icons" sale set to be held June 23-24.
Presley was originally laid to rest in the crypt along side of his mother Gladys for a brief time after his death in 1977. However, a short time later, "The King" and his mother were relocated and reburied at his Graceland home were they rest to this day.
According to The Associated Press, auctioneer Darren Julien says the highest bidder "will receive the crypt, opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorialization inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service."
