If you want to be buried like the King, you'd better get your checkbook out.

A Beverly Hills auction house announced it will be putting the original crypt where Elvis Presley and his mother were buried on the auction block next month, the The New York Times reported.

Julien's Auctions will start the bidding for the crypt at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis at $100,000 on June 23, according to the Times. The winning bidder will be able to open and close the vault and crypt for burial, have a memorial inscription and use the chapel for services, according to the report.

The rock icon and his mother Gladys were buried in the Forest Hill tomb for two months following Elvis' death in 1977, but the bodies were moved to their final resting place in Graceland.
