Outfits, shoes and other items worn by Prince, as well as a Bible the late Minnesota music icon owned and carried, are among the items that will go up for auction on July 21, an auction house announced Wednesday.
The items come from a collection of memorabilia owned by a former bodyguard.
In all, a total of 27 personal items owned by the music legend will be offered in Heritage Auctions' Entertainment and Music Memorabilia Auction, which will be held in Dallas, a release said.
Among the top items are a travel Bible, silk suit, double-breasted silk jacket and a copy of Prince's hit album "Purple Rain" owned by the rock star himself.
"Prince's musical and cultural impact (cannot) be overstated," Heritage Auctions Consignment Director Mike Gutierrez said in the release."He was a brilliant musician, singer, composer, director. Anything relating to Prince has significant appeal to collectors, but to have lots like this, that he owned and wore represents (an) extraordinary trove of treasures from one of the great musical influencers of our generation."
Prince died of an accidental overdose in 2016 at Paisley Park in Chanhassen.
