File this under: "Elvis Checks Out"

In June, auctioneers Bonhams & Butterfields will be selling one of Elvis Presley’s personal checkbooks from the early 1970s. The checkbook, which is estimated to be sold for $25,000 to $30,000, includes unused checks printed with the Graceland address, used check stubs, and notations for airline tickets, expenses, and a dune buggy registration.

The auction will be held in Los Angeles June 4th. Also included in the Hollywood and music memorabilia sale are honeymoon photographs of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, one of Frank Sinatra’s tuxedos, and a handwritten note from Lenny Bruce.

Dang, $30,000! That's a lot of money. Wonder if they'll take a check.
