A piece of Prince's legacy could be yours -- if the price is right.

A black-and-white blazer with leather sleeves worn by the legendary musician in his classic 1984 film, Purple Rain, will be put up for auction in June, according to The Associated Press. The announcement comes just a week after Prince died at the age of 57.

"It's definitely the most important piece of screen-worn Prince clothing that's ever come up for auction," Profiles in History auction house's president, Joe Maddalena, said. "This is a signature piece of wardrobe worn from an iconic movie in his most famous role."

"Prince memorabilia in general, it just really doesn't exist. It seems like he controlled it all," Maddalena explained, noting a makeup artist on the film was apparently gifted the jacket by Prince himself. "This is the first time ever for something like this, and it might be the only time."

The auction will take place June 29 and will also include memorabilia from other legends -- including a Swarovski crystal-studded glove worn by Michael Jackson during his "Dangerous" tour -- but the coat is expected to be the "star of the show."

So, how much will it cost to take the Purple Rain blazer home with you?

The asking price is $6,000 to $8,000, but Maddalena predicts it will ultimately sell for "much more" in the wake of the "Little Red Corvette" singer's death.
