Have you ever wanted to own a piece of David Ortiz or Shane Victorino? If so, now’s your chance.
The Boston Red Sox tore through the playoffs en route to the franchise’s eighth World Series title. On the way, the team grew some of the most legendary sports beards the world has ever seen.
Now, some of those beards have hit the auction block. Gillette will give all proceeds from the auction to Movember, the global charity that raises awareness for men’s health issues, including prostate and testicular cancer.
Following is Big Papi’s auction description, courtesy of eBay:
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.
