More Hair For Sale

January 30, 2010 | Other

A strand of Elvis Presley's hair is being sold by Chorley's at Prinknash Abbey Park, Gloucestershire GL4 8EX on Thursday 25th February 2010. The vendor, who comes from Gloucestershire, is a keen music buff and bought the strand of hair on a whim through a television auction. The strand is estimted to fetch between £400 and £600.

It is mounted in the centre of a gold disc inscribed 'The King's Authentic Hair' together iwth a photograph of the singer and a certificate of authenticity on the reverse.

In October 2009, a clump of Elvis's hair sold at auction in Chicago for US$ 15,000.

With all the hair being sold in auctions over the last few years, a baldy guy could have had the Elvis pompadour by now.

(no insult intended): it's beginning to look like the countless relics being sold as parts of the cross of Jesus Christ...

Other than Steve's idea of making an Elvis toupee, I wonder if anyone out there is working on an Elvis clone yet, with all the DNA being auctioned off......

I'm making an Afro wig with the pubic hair collected from auction sites.
