Hair Not Sold

A strand of legendary musician Elvis Presley's hair has failed to attract any buyer at an auction.

The memorabilia, encased at the centre of a gold disc, was expected to fetch up to $960 when it went under the hammer Thursday, but bidding failed to meet the reserve price, reported contactmusic.com.

The seller, a music fan from Gloucestershire, England, said he bought the strand during a previous televised auction.

A spokesperson for auction house Chorley's admitted such unusual items are losing popularity with collectors. He said: "These more fun items are not doing as well in the current market as the more serious antiques. It's just one of those things."

They should have added two hairs (not the whole flock though) to every FTD digipack of that area. Not too late though : hope the FTD Team adds it when they release King Creole FTD digipack. Fantastic promotional marketing gimmick for a selective group of EP fans ! Besides, the price is far too high.

Im glad. The desire for these silly items was bound to wane. I think real collectors of Elvis & rock and roll would rather a nice autographed piece, a Sun, a personal belonging or whatever. A strand of hair is ludicrous.
