Here's a chance to dress like two kings, a Prince and a knight - the royalty of rock 'n' roll.
Eye-popping outfits worn by the King, Elvis Presley, and the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, are up for grabs in an online memorabilia auction by the midtown shop Gotta Have It.
Also available for the taking in the gottahaverockandroll.com sale running through March 10 is a gold tunic rocked by Sir Paul McCartney and a polka-dotted waistcoat worn by Prince.
But owning a piece of music history won't come cheap.
Minimum bids are $10,000 for Elvis' red suede jacket and $15,000 for Jackson's vintage orange jumpsuit - and prices could skyrocket as bidders jump in.
"All it takes is two people, till one gets tired or doesn't want to spend any more money," said store co-owner Peter Siegel, who said a Presley jumpsuit sold for $300,000 in the shop's August 2008 auction.
Presley's 1950s-vintage jacket now on the block isn't some castoff from the back of his closet. It came from his favorite Memphis men's wear store, Lansky Brothers. He wore it on the record cover of "Jailhouse Rock."
And Jackson's vinyl jumpsuit was seen on the cover of Newsweek during his 1984 "Victory Tour." It has Velcro fastenings so he could yank it off for quick costume changes.
"They are iconic items," Siegel said. "You can identify who wore them the minute you see them."
More than 570 pop culture artifacts are being auctioned off.
Some are oddities, like the white cloth napkin Jacko tossed off a London hotel balcony to an adoring crowd below.
"I love this city very much ... I'm going to sleep now," he scribbled in black ink.
And some are surprisingly moving, like the two small pieces of unlined paper on which Bob Dylan hand-printed, in tiny letters, complete with scratched-out words, the lyrics to "Just Like a Woman."
The rock 'n' roll legends represented in the auction run the gamut, from Bono's rosary beads to Britney Spears' fishnet pantyhose.
"We have something for everyone," Siegel said.
