We’re not sure if this is awesome or kind of gross, but we’re leaning toward gross.
After celebrating their World Series championship, David Ortiz and Shane Victorino visited the Gillette headquarters to chop off the scruff that had accumulated on their faces throughout the season. That facial hair was not just thrown away, however.
Pieces of Ortiz’s and Victorino’s beards are now up for sale on eBay, along with the razors that were used to shave them off. They’re fetching a pretty penny, too. As of 2:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, the top bid on Ortiz’s was $670.00, while Victorino’s came in $405.00.
Here’s how the listing for Ortiz’s beard ball reads:
“Up for auction is this one-of-a-kind, 100% authentic, David Ortiz 2013 Championship Beard Ball. Not only is this real championship beard hair, it is real championship MVP beard hair. David Ortiz?s beard ball was obtained on November 4th at Gillette?s World Shaving Headquarters in Boston as part of a charity shave-off. Included with the beard ball is the actual Fusion ProGlide Styler used in the shave and a card of authenticity signed by Big Papi himself.
“All proceeds go to Movember, the global charity that gets men to grow, and women to support, the moustache for the 30 days of November while raising funds and awareness for men’s health to combat prostate and testicular cancer. For more information, please visit Movember.com.
“Act now and get a piece of Boston baseball history.”
The seller also makes a point to note that the hair has been “treated and sterilized,” which is always good.
