    Inside the King of tour buses: 'Mobile museum' driven (and even crashed) by Elvis Presley himself could be yours for $100,000
    • The bus and two hundred of Elvis' personal items, including his marriage license and prescription bottle, will be auctioned in New York
    • Collection also features the late singer's 1971 Stutz Blackhawk car and a diamond necklace he gave to his nurse
    • The shirt he wore for his first ever live performance in 1954 is also included
    • Elvis often drove the tour bus he personally bought for his backup band
    • It has been renovated to its original state and seats up to 12 people
    • Bus was once crashed into a corn field by the King of Rock N' Roll himself

    The King may have left the building too soon but the chance to own his old tour bus, marriage certificate or even one of his prescription bottles is still alive.

    A number of Elvis Presley's personal items will soon be put up for auction, which will also include his 1971 Stutz Blackhawk car, a diamond necklace he gave to his nurse and the shirt he wore for his first ever live performance in 1954.

    Also featured is an MGM personnel form that Elvis signed for his Jailhouse Rock film in 1957, which includes the star's old address, social security number and emergency contact.

    These are just some of the items Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills will feature in the 'Property from the Life and Career of Elvis Presley' collection, which will be auctioned at the New York Hard Rock Cafe on May 16

    These are just some of the items Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills will feature in the 'Property from the Life and Career of Elvis Presley' collection, which will be auctioned at the New York Hard Rock Cafe on May 16.

    The standout is the 'TCB' tour bus that was once driven into a cornfield by the King of Rock and Roll himself.

    Elvis personally paid for the bus for his backup band, Sumner and the Stamps. His signed $25,000 deposit check is framed on its wall.

    According to Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien's Auctions, Elvis and JD Sumner were 'like brothers'. Sumner even sang at his funeral.

    Also up for auction is the King of Rock and Roll's 1971 two-seater Stutz Blackhawk car, which is estimated to sell for $400,000 to $600,000

    Also included is the personalized diamond necklace Elvis gave to his nurse Letetia Henley Kirk and one of the singer's old prescription bottles

    But that's not even the priciest item up for auction. Elvis' 1971 two-seater Stutz Blackhawk car is estimated to sell for $400,000 to $600,000.

    Prospective buyers interested in something cheaper can try their luck with Elvis and Priscilla Presley's 1967 marriage certificate, which is estimated at $25,000-$35,000, according to the auction house's press release.

    And Elvis' medicine bottle, dated 1974, comes at a bargain estimate of $2,500-$3,000.



    Other items included in the sale are the singer's black Gibson J-200 Guitar, a military winter dress uniform, a penguin suit he wore in Las Vegas and a white knit cardigan from early in his career.

    I have to admit...if I had billions of FU money, I'd clean that auction out.
    I've always found Elvis fascinating.
