Forensics? No. Mel's barber shop on a Tuesday? Far more likely.

Wow, I have no words.

WTF is right!

I'd love to hear of the in depth authentication process that went into the hair and the provenance!?!

I mean.... really?

This is just silly. Lets just throw a whole bunch of stuff on to card and slap a 95k price tag on it. A sketch, a signature?, s tiny strip of gold and some stray hair, that should do it! lol

I'm questioning the legitimacy of some of these companies more and more every day.

I am sure if CC reads this that anybody's hair will be available shortly.
I would have the same confidence in the CC offerings as I do in the ebay offering.
Overheard in a fake memorabilia office in PA:
"Ouch,,, sorry,, I just cut myself with a pair of scissors.
But be sure to look for my next offerings of HOF hair."

UD was big into these hair cards for a few years, supposedly they all have provenance and backing -

I think Jeff Goldblum won that auction and he and his cohorts are in the process of creating 'Jurassic Park - MLB.'
