Celeb auction pops Presley's pills



We’re all for celebrity memorabilia, but this goes a bit too far. A bottle of Elvis Presley’s prescription antihistamines sold at auction last week for the kingly sum of $2,600. L.A. County police put the kibosh on the fun part of the sale by saying auction house Julien’s couldn’t sell the bottle with the remaining pills still in it, though, TMZ reports.

Other junk sold at the same auction included a $28,000 gold-plated pistol from Presley, Alfred Hitchcock’s $19,000 passport and Marilyn Monroe’s $42,000 prop umbrella, which gets to live out its days at Museum of Style Icons in County Kildare, Ireland, the site says. Strangely, Presley’s toilet seat wasn’t for sale.
