It wasn't me, so it must have been one of you...
No way an investment like this could get by er.org...



Elvis' hair sells for $15K at Chicago auction
CHICAGO (AP) - A clump of hair believed to have been trimmed from Elvis Presley's head when he joined the Army in 1958 has sold for $15,000 at a Chicago auction house.


Also among the 200 Elvis-related items up for grabs at the Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago on Sunday was a shirt that once belonged to the King which sold for $52,000.

The buyer of the hair paid $15,000 plus an additional $3,300 in auction house fees.

Other items on offer included scarves, photos from the reception of Presley's 1967 wedding to Priscilla, Christmas cards he sent and lots of records. Elvis dolls and Elvis Pez dispensers numbered among the memorabilia.

A clump of hair believed to have been trimmed from Elvis Presley's head....

So they are not sure if the hair belonged to Elvis Presley or what body part it came from?

Wow! A 22% Buyer's Premium. That's the business to be in. I wonder what the Seller was charged.
