An Elvis auction took place over the weekend, and one of the weirdest pieces of Elvis memorabilia ever was sold for over $72,000.

A jar of Elvis’ hair, which his barber saved, Homer Gilleland, went up for sale. 

The baseball-sized hairball was one of the most well-documented pieces globally and had been kept for 20 years. 

Another specimen of Elvis’ hair was sold in 2002 for $115,120.

Other items sold at Kruse GWS Auctions included Elvis’ Schick electric razor sold for $3,000. A jumpsuit, worn for his landmark performances at Madison Square Garden in 1972, sold for a record $1,012,500, and a racing helmet worn in the film “Viva Las Vegas” ($23,750.) His “Frankie & Johnny” tuxedo tailcoat ($75,000), his personal and stage-worn boots ($28,750), sheet music from his ’68 Comeback Special ($15,000), and custom eagle belt ($25,000).
