Items belonging to several sports legends and music icons are to be auctioned off from June 23- 24, 2012.
These include the robe used by late singer Amy Winehouse in her video ‘Rehab‘, the crypt in which Elvis Presley‘s body was first laid to rest before being moved to his Graceland mansion, items from Rolling Stone guitarist Keith Richards, a pair of shoes worn and signed by Michael Jordan, the hood of a race car signed by driving champion Tony Stewart, and a Lance Armstrong suit worn in the 2003 Tour de France.
Of all the items for sale, the original Elvis crypt is likely to gain a lot of attention. Elvis, among the best known rock ‘n’ rollers of all time, died in 1977 and following his funeral at Graceland, his body was temporarily entombed in the crypt of a private mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee.
The two-day sale also includes a ripped t-shirt with ‘Hell’ scrawled across it, which Keith Richards once wore while playing for the Stones.
It will also feature memorabilia and clothing owned by David Bowie, John Lennon and Michael Jackson.
