Elvis Auction

May 27 (Bloomberg) — Guns, smashed T.V’s, pill bottles and a device used for treating Elvis Presley’s sinuses will be up for sale in the first auction of items from the collection of George “Dr. Nick” Nichopoulos, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s physician.

The auction, part of a bigger sale that also has memorabilia from Marilyn Monroe and other celebrities, is planned for June 26-27 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. It includes nine of Presley’s medication bottles, and a prescription for bacon (2 lb’s a day) that was issued to Presley a day before his 1977 death. That item is expected to fetch $800 to $1,200.
