CLEVELAND (AP) — Elvis Presley items including his ID bracelet, some of his rings and his wallet-size Army induction portrait are going on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.

The exhibit was opening Friday in conjunction with Elvis Presley Enterprises. The exhibit includes more than 40 artifacts loaned by Presley's Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tenn.

The items include Presley's 41-carat ruby and diamond ring and the 1968-era white suit he wore when he performed "If I Can Dream" on a TV special.

The rock hall inducted Presley in 1986 and calls him "the undisputed King of Rock and Roll."

The rock hall says he holds records for the most Top 40 hits with 104 and the most Top 10 hits with 38.
