Elvis' Weave for Sale

10/7/2009 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A tuft of Elvis Presley's 51-year-old wavy locks is going on the auction block ... and is expected to fetch around $12k.

One of Presley's friends has managed to hold on to the hair clump, which was cut off back in 1958 when the King enlisted in the Army, and is selling it as part of an auction of Elvis memorabilia on October 18 in Chicago.

For you non-serial killers, other less creepy items on the block include: autographed records, photos and an ultra-suede red shirt Presley once wore.

TMZ hits a new low    

This was given to a friend by Elvis. The friend had cerebal palsy and Elvis took a liking to him and cared about him. And later made him president of one of his fan clubs, which were a real thing back then it appears. This friend is now selling almost all the things Elvis gave him, including this hair when he got a buzz cut to join the Army. The other things he's selling are the pictures he took fo Elvis on cameras that Elvis gave him. I understand the pictures and original negatives go together. And some Polaroids. Granted, the hair is super gross. But the story is actually touching and reminds all of us what a kind and gentle guy Elvis was. And how he very quietly took care of people and had a soft spot for hangers on or the less fortunate. If you haven't ever been to Graceland, you should go. Particularly at Christmas.

The buyer better have a DNA test run before purchasing it. It looks kind of 'furry' instead of shiny and nice.
