In 2012, a Pair of Unwashed Underpants Belonging to Elvis Presley Sold for $8,000 at an Auction

Elvis Presley, the influential “King of Rock and Roll”, had a significant impact on music and popular culture. Collectors and fans have a strong interest in acquiring memorabilia associated with his life and career. The sale of his dirty underwear for $8,000 at an auction in 2012 is a reflection of the scarcity of such items, their historical value, and the enduring demand among enthusiasts. While it may seem unusual, the market for celebrity memorabilia encompasses a wide range of items, and the sale highlights the fascination people have with iconic figures like Elvis Presley.

The pants, which were worn by Presley underneath one of his jumpsuits during a performance in 1977, hadn’t been washed since Elvis took them off, and featured a suspicious yellow stain on the front of the crotch.

Elvis did not want any lines visible while he was on stage wearing his vast array of dazzling jumpsuits and this pair of underpants was obtained from the estate of Vernon Presley, Elvis’ father.

Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977 at the age of 42 after suffering a heart attack. He is buried in the grounds of Graceland alongside his parents and grandmother. There is also a memorial headstone for his twin, Jesse Garon.

  1. Yellow stains on the front of a pair of underwear is never "suspicious."
