The garment received a bid of $8,000 but it didn't meet the reserve price
In his heyday, many women hoped he would love them tender so they could get their hands on his under garments and rock his jailhouse, but today the most anyone was willing to pay was just under $8,000. Because no bidder was willing to pay the reserve price of $11,000, they didn't sell at the Omega Auctions in England.

The light blue pants were worn by Elvis under one of his famous jumpsuits during a 1977 concert. The style was specifically chosen by the King, who didn't like visible lines under his tight-fitting outfits, reports BBC. They are unwashed and have brown stains on the bottom. Initially, it was reported the garment was expected to fetch as much as $16,000.
The underwear and bible were just two of more than 100 items put under the hammer.

The soiled underwear is pretty strange, but people seem to have an appetite for odd items that once belonged to celebrities. A handful of Elvis' hair sold for $115,000 in 2002. Gum once chewed by Britney Spears in Toronto went for $14,000 in 2004. A jar of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's breath sold for $530 in 2010. Good luck verifying that one. Justin Bieber's hair sold for more than $40,000 last year and a piece of Justin Timberlake's partially eaten French toast sold for more than $3,000.
We're not sure what people do with chewed gum or a breath, but from pictures on the auction website, the soiled underwear are framed so they can be hung anywhere in the house. However, the kitchen probably isn't the best place.
