A pair of Elvis Presley‘s stained underpants are set to go up for auction in Manchester next month.

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

BBC News reports that the pants are expected to make around £10,000 when they go under the hammer on September 8 at the auction of Elvis memorabilia in Stockport.

The underwear came from the estate of Vernon Presley – Elvis’ father. Also up for sale is Elvis’ Bible, which has been annotated by the iconic performer. The Bible is expected to make £25,000. Priscilla Presley’s home movies are up for grabs too. They feature footage of the couple’s wedding, as well as of Christmas at Graceland, family holidays and of Elvis and Priscilla bringing their daughter Lisa-Marie home from hospital to Graceland.

The 35th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley was recently marked by a candlelit vigil at Graceland in Memphis. It was attended by an estimated 75,000 fans.
