Bible that belonged to Elvis sells for $94K


A notation is seen on Elvis Presley's personal Bible as the book waits to be sold at an auction of pop memorabilia in Stockport near Manchester, England.


A Bible which once belonged to Elvis Presley and contains his handwritten notes and thoughts has sold for $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 Web site.

The Bible, used by Presley until his death on Aug. 16, 1977, sold 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.
