New York, Mar 17 (ANI): The trademark blue-and-gold jumpsuit and matching cape that King of Rock n Roll Elvis Presley wore at his 1972 concert in New York is up for grabs at an online auction.

After the concert, Elvis had given the jumpsuit to legendary songwriter Joyce (Dottie) Rambo, who wrote many tunes for the King, as her birthday gift.

Rambo was killed in a tour bus accident last year.

The Elvis memorabilia was discovered by Rambos daughter Pete Siegel, who has put them up for sale on auction site Gotta Have It!

The jumpsuit is expected to rake in more than 150,000 dollars.

“Nobody knew where it was,” the New York Daily News quoted Siegel as saying.

A piano, which Elvis personally used in Graceland from 1957 to 1969, is also up for sale. It is expected to fetch more than 1 million dollars.

Other items being sold include a pair of black monogrammed pajamas and an Elvis-autographed seventh-degree black belt certificate.

Two astrological charts prepared for Elvis in the late 1960s by renowned astrologer Dane Rudhyar and his close friend and hair stylist Larry Geller are up for sale.

Also up for grabs are the black pants and red-and-black checkered shirt Elvis wore in the 1957 hit film “Jailhouse Rock.” (ANI)
