A piece of hair that belonged to Elvis Presley was sold yesterday at an auction held in Chicago for the amount of $ 15,000.
The strand of hair was put for sale yesterday and had a starting price of 12,000 dollars. The king’s hair was cut in 1958, in the context of preparations for enlistment in the U.S. Army, and belonged until yesterday to a close friend of Elvis.
Along with the strand of hair has been sold a shirt which once belonged to Elvis, for 52,000 dollars. The one who paid $ 15,000 for Elvis Presley’s hair chose to remain anonymous.
