Crazy about your favorite pop star? So much so that you would part with a big chunk of cash to own a bit of a stage get-up or a personal item?
A lock of Mick Jagger's hair was picked up at London's renowned Bonhams auctioneers Wednesday. A snip at under $6,000? Someone certainly thought so.
The clump of hair was sold by the Rolling Stone singer's former girlfriend, Chrissie Shrimpton, who told Bonhams the lock was saved by her grandmother, without her knowing, when Mick and Chrissie were staying at her parents' farm in the 1960s.
An anonymous buyer picked up the unusual item for twice its estimated price, and all proceeds were to be donated to the Changing Faces charity.
But if that sale seems out of the ordinary, you'll be shocked to find out what else has sold for thousands—or hundreds of thousands—of dollars. CNBC has uncovered some items that brought mind-boggling figures at auction.
A savvy investment, an outrageous indulgence or a frenzied fad? You decide!
