Elvis's contract with Colonel Tom Parker that set him on his way to stardom to reach 25,000 dollars under the hammer.
Fans of Elvis Presley will be all shook up to hear that the very first contract signed by the rock and roll star is to go under the hammer this week.
The agreement between Presley and his ruthless manager, Colonel Tom Parker, signed at Sun Records' studio in Memphis, Tennessee, came just before the singer rocketed to international superstardom.
