Gillette Is Auctioning Off Balls Of Shane Victorino And David Ortiz's Beard Hair From The 2013 Season on eBay. That's Just Friggin Gross.

David Ortiz and Shane Victorino, the recently crowned world champions of baseball, had their beards trimmed and shaved by Gillette® (NYSE: PG) on Monday, November 4 to mark the end of a victorious 2013 season.

Every strand of the biggest beards of baseball was saved. The shavings and the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors that shaved each champion beard have been assembled into one of the more unique pieces of memorabilia in sports history – beard ball trophies – and they are up for auction on eBay, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Movember.

I understand its for charity, I get that.  But its still friggin gross.  It looks like a cross between something a cat coughed up and a ball of pubic hair.  There has to be a better way to present hair clippings.

I personally would not want to put something that looks like a chunk of pubic hair in my mancave and stare at it along side my replica championship rings, framed pictures, etc.  Thats just me.
