Hair for Sale?

CHICAGO (AP/The Loop) — The King may be dead, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to run your fingers through his hair.

A Chicago auction house is putting a clump of what it says is Elvis Presley’s hair up for auction — along with some of his clothes, sweat-stained scarves and memorabilia. The auction will be held at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers on Sunday.

Presley may have lost the hair when he got his Army-issue crewcut when he went into the service in 1958. The auction house says another collector with hair Presley lost to an Army barber has checked the hair out and it matches what he has.

The auction house says it isn’t clear how much the hair will go for, but that another clump of the King’s hair sold at auction in 2002 for $115,000.
