MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A light blue jumpsuit worn by Elvis Presley during concerts in 1973 was one of more than 170 items set to be auctioned at Graceland in August.

Graceland officials said the auction scheduled for August 13 would also feature a jacket Presley wore in the film "Viva Las Vegas" and a diamond and gold necklace given to performer Sammy Davis Jr. by Presley.

The event would be the third auction of Presley artifacts at Graceland, Presley's longtime Memphis home that was turned into a museum after he died in August 1977.

Earlier this year, the acetate of "My Happiness," Presley's first ever recording, sold for $300,000.

Items in the upcoming auction would be offered from third-party collectors. None of the items were set to come from Graceland's own collection of Presley-related items.
