NEW YORK (AP) - Can you afford Elvis Presley’s blue suede shoes? What about his jumpsuit?

The auctioneer Gotta Have It Collectibles is selling more than 500 pieces of Elvis memorabilia online.

The minimum bid on the sky blue jumpsuit and cape with gold lining is $100,000.

Other items are less pricey. Bidding on a silver and turquoise belt that Elvis wore on stage starts at $8,000.

Then there are items that were never owned by Presley but have his face stamped on them, like an Elvis ashtray or a key chain.

The auction started Monday and ends March 25.
