A big hunk o' hair -- Elvis locks go under the hammer
Slideshow:Elvis items to be auctioned LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Elvis Presley fans keen to own a chunk of their idol now can: locks of what is claimed to be The King's hair are up for auction next week.

The large quantity of hair is one of about 200 items of Elvis memorabilia collected by the late Gary Pepper, who was the president of the Tankers Fan Club set up for Elvis fans.

Chicago-based Leslie Hindman Auctioneers said the hair, which is expected to sell for between $8,000 and $12,000 at the October 18 auction, was given to Pepper to mail to Presley fans and was believed to be from when the singer had his hair cut to join the U.S. Army.

"In 1958, the nation's newspapers announced that Elvis Presley, having been newly recruited into the U.S. Army, had received two haircuts trimming his famous locks and sideburns down to a greatly modified crew cut," said a statement by the auction house.

"Individual strands of Elvis Presley's shaved locks have since been treasured by his fans who wish to own a piece of The King himself."

The auction house has not had a DNA test carried out on the hair but quoted "an expert in celebrity hair authentication," John Reznikoff, saying it matched the Elvis hair he has in his collection.

Presley died in 1977 at the age of 42.

Other items up for sale include signed photos, albums, publicity shots, souvenirs, and clothing.

I do not know why Lisa or EPE could not buy such personal items so that the money grubbers can not sell to the highest bidder.
Elvis is with his first father and no longer in pain but I can not imagine that this auction would please him at all.................

WHY??????????????????????????? I have a difficult time with people who do such things as the auction information that you posted.
Elvis' heart was so very loving while here in his physical form. He did so much good for people and in many cases he did not want it known.
Why would ANY fan participate in such an auction???
I read the Geller books and in the book he decribes "doing" Elvis' hair for the last time. He cut and snipped and there was hair on the floor. Geller picked it all up SO no one could ever do this very thing.
I am thankful each day that Elvis is not suffering now.
Thank you again for this post,
Marjorie

73mile with the words you just said, is the very Reason why we here at ELC feel Elvis' Spirit. It is because we here try and Understand the Human Being and the Feelings Elvis did and might have about the Things that Some People are saleing, Writing or saying about him, that only see Dollar signs. :( :hug:

First I have to say I adore the blue rose used as an avatar by our dear member across the pond.

I finished reading The Gospel Side Of Elvis and in it the author talks about the faith Elvis had in his fellow man and some really do care and respect and would never bid on such an auction but so many others may.
Very said.
