his isn't just a lock or strand of the King's trademark pompadour. This "large quantity" of hair originated in the collection of Elvis' personal barber, Homer Gilleland. Gilleland gave this hair to his friend Tom Morgan, of the Shelby County Sheriff's Department, who was a close friend of the barber, as well as The King. The hair is expected to bring as much as $20,000. Bidding has already reached $13,000.
This lot includes a notarized Letter of Authenticity, confirmed by Morgan and John Reznikoff of University Archives, a known and trusted expert in the field.
