Apparently, David Ortiz has sold his beard for charity. His beard. His friggin' facial hair. I'm afraid that this is where I draw the line when it comes to sports memorabilia. An auto is fine. A jersey or a bat is pretty cool. But, buying someone's facial clippings is just plain disgusting.
Shane Victorino got about 4 grand for his face fur. Ugg.
I know there is a market for the DNA of important people. A couple of years ago Allen and Ginter were throwing strands of hair from Abraham Lincoln into cards. It just all seems so very weird to me. But, if that's your thing then who am I to judge?
