A baseball-sized clump of hair that came from the head of Elvis Presley sold for $72,500 in an auction. Kruse GWS Auctions, based in Los Angeles, said the "Elvis Presley jar of hair with extensive documentation" sold for $72,500 in an auction that also included the sale of the performer's iconic jumpsuit from his 1972 Madison Square Garden performance for $1,012,500. The auction house said the baseball-sized clump of hair was collected over the course of multiple haircuts by Homer Gilleland, Presley's personal barber for more than two decades. The hair was kept in a plastic bag by Gilleland, who gifted it to Thomas Morgan, a close friend of both the barber and the singer.
