    The entrance to a private crypt that once held Elvis Presley's body is set to be auctioned off next month.

    The crypt previously held the bodies of the rock 'n' roll legend and his mother, Gladys, for about two months in 1977 before Elvis' body was buried at Graceland. 

    "I just consider that if you're an ultimate fan of Elvis Presley, it's an opportunity," president of Julien's auctions, Darren Julien, told The New York Times. "It's definitely a conversation piece. Only one person can say, 'Hey, I'm going to be buried where Elvis Presley was.'"

    Julien's Auctions will hold the pop music memorabilia sale, which will include a robe worn by Amy Winehouse, in the mausoleum of the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis June 23 and 24. 

    The lot will go on auction for a starting price of $100,000, and will include the opening and closing of the vault and crypt for burial, a memorial inscription and the use of the chapel for a committal service.

    The King has left the building, and now you have a chance to leave by the same exit.
