Run your fingers in Elvis' hair

CHICAGO (AP) - October 13, 2009

If you've got the cash, you may be able to buy what's said to be a clump of Presley's hair to run your fingers through. It's part of a memorabilia auction next Sunday in Chicago. Other items will include some of his clothes and -- if you're so inclined -- sweat-stained scarves.

As for the hair, it may have come from Presley's Army-issue crewcut while entering the service in 1958. The auction house says another collector with hair Presley lost to an Army barber has checked it out and it matches what he has.

So, how much is this clump of Elvis hair expected to fetch? In 2002, another clump went for $115,000.
