"Presley's red button-down shirt worn during the 1964 film Kissin' Cousins and a white wool jacket worn in concert in the early 1950s will also go under the hammer Tuesday."
New York, June 23 - A sweat-stained jumpsuit worn by Elvis Presley while performing in Las Vegas is going up for auction.

Presley's white costume, which is decorated with a large green and blue peacock across the front, is part of a music memorabilia sale titled 'A Rock & Roll History: Presley to Punk', hosted by Sotheby's New York, reports contactmusic.com.

On the auction house's website, the jumpsuit is described as having minor staining and browning; non-working zipper and is expected to fetch at least $200,000.

Presley's red button-down shirt worn during the 1964 film Kissin' Cousins and a white wool jacket worn in concert in the early 1950s will also go under the hammer Tuesday.

In addition to Presley's former possessions, the sale also includes a red military-style jacket worn by Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan's handwritten lyrics to Like a Rolling Stone, Kurt Cobain's smashed Univox guitar and John Lennon's upright piano.
