Got a hunka hunka money burning a hole in your pocket and a love for all things Elvis Presley?

Then get yourself to Graceland next month for the first-ever auction of the King's personal items to be held at the famed Memphis mansion.

Highlights of the Aug. 14 auction include Presley's first-known signature – on a Tupelo, Mississippi, school library card – a handwritten set list from 1969 and jewelry, like the beloved lion's head pendant he wore while meeting President Richard Nixon.

Although Priscilla Presley previewed the auction Tuesday on Today, she made it clear the items do not belong to her or daughter Lisa Marie. Instead, most come from ardent Elvis collector Greg Page, a founder of The Wiggles. (Yep, those Wiggles.)



The auction will coincide with Elvis Week at Graceland, which commemorates the legend's death on Aug. 16, 1977, according to USA Today.
