A tuft of Elvis Presley's hair is set to go on sale at a Chicago auction later this month.

Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will be hosting an auction on October 18 which sees a whole host of unique Elvis memorabilia go under the hammer.

The lump of Elvis' quiff was shorn when the music legend joined the US Army in 1958 and is expected to fetch up to £12,000 at auction.

Also up for sale is a set of pictures from Elvis and Priscilla's wedding day in 1967, a suede shirt worn by the star in 1963, original artworks and a string of signed record sleeves.

Gigwise recently hosted a run down of the weirdest ever rock n' roll memorabilia to go under the hammer. See how Elvis' quiff compares to there strange lots:
