    A Bible from Graceland bearing annotations from Elvis Presley went for $94,000 at auction in England on Saturday. The book once owned by the deceased rock-and-roll legend was among the memorabilia—including a soiled pair of underpants—offered at auction in Britain. “You could hear a pin drop when it sold for that price,” auctioneer Karen Fairweather said of the sale of the 1,600-page Bible. The book was given to the King by his aunt and uncle as a Christmas present in 1957.
