On this day in 2003 one of Elvis’s teeth was listed on eBay, together with some hair and a gold record. The reserve price was $100,000.
Just how do you get a tooth without actually digging him up? Easy, you get the tooth from a man who got it from his dad, who happens to be the founder of the Elvis museum, and he in turn got it from from of Elvis’ old girlfriends….. I told you it was easy. Now why did she have tooth? Apparently, it was pulled after Elvis had an accident, but I have no idea what type of accident (or pulled by a dentist, depending on which story you want to believe).
The tooth, hair, and gold record failed to sell.
