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.

That's what I was thinking, #4 "eh." I guess we will find if it's really "his" or not if they try to extract DNA from it and make a new Elvis.
The mad scientists can make their "Jurassic Park" and have cloned Elvis doing it all, from selling you your cotton candy while singing 'Love Me Tender,' to working security while crooning 'Jailhouse Rock' and be the carny that sells you the baseballs to knock down the milk cans for the big prize of the giant bear, of course while serenading you with 'Teddy Bear.'
Your legend lives on Elvis, more than you had ever anticipated.
