For those not willing to pay that much for a chunk of Presleyana, the June 18-19 auction at the Las Vegas Hilton, featuring the entire contents of Jimmy Velvet's Elvis Presley Museum, also includes (with their pre-sale price estimates):
•a piece of carpet from Elvis's bedroom ($40 to $50)
•a faux tortoiseshell Elvis guitar pick ($200 to $400)
•a five-foot-tall plastic tree ($100 to $150).
Is there anything of Elvis's that Velvet is keeping off the market? "I have some of his pill bottles," he says, "but I won't put them on display."
