Who would have guessed? The winning online auction bid came in at a whopping $115K! The figure exceeded the auction total of similar items once belonging to John F. Kennedy, John Lennon and Beethoven. According to reliable sources, the Illinois based company MastroNet Inc. has experienced great success selling similar memorabilia once securely affixed to Mickey Mantle, Neil Armstrong and Che Guevara. Elvis Presley was as well known for his black, lustrous, well-oiled and slicked back pompadour as he was for his swiveling hips and indefatigable ability to mesmerize his female fans. Elvis’ personal barber discovered a once in a lifetime opportunity. Rather than sweeping up and disposing of it, he simply collected the hair on the floor following the King of Rock’n’Roll’s frequent haircuts. He then offered the King’s tresses to the highest bidder. Yes, the item referred to at the beginning of this blog that sold in auction for $115K, was in fact a lock of Elvis’ hair! Simply ingenious!
