Elvis Auction: Hunka, Hunka Earning Locks
Elvis Presley
Shooting Star
Apparently, everything the King touched did turn to gold – including the hair on his head: A clump of Elvis Presley's hair has sold for $15,000 in a Chicago auction.

The hair, believed to have come from Presley's head when he had his first Army haircut in 1958, was only the most publicized Elvis item up for sale among 200 at the Leslie Hindman Auctioneers house on Sunday.

Others included a shirt that Elvis wore that sold for $52,000, photos from his 1967 wedding, Christmas cards, records, and Elvis Pez dispensers, all from a late Presley friend and coordinator of his fan club.
