JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Thousands of Elvis Presley-themed items are going up for auction this weekend in north Mississippi.

They're from the kitschy collection of the late Paul MacLeod. The Elvis super fan operated his home in Holly Springs as Graceland Too, a roadside museum dedicated to the king of rock 'n' roll.

MacLeod died last summer, and his estate is selling the things he collected, including albums, ceramic figurines and commemorative plates. It's also selling MacLeod's pink Cadillac, a non-functioning electric chair he made in tribute to "Jailhouse Rock" and the house itself.

The museum - not affiliated with Presley's Graceland estate in nearby Memphis, Tennessee - was a late-night favorite of intoxicated college students and tourists.

Attorney Phillip Knecht, who represents MacLeod's estate, says there is no minimum bid on the items.
