There is a very fine line between superfan and stalker, and these bizarre picks for the weirdest celebrity memorabilia prove just that. Forget the autographs and the bobbleheads, this memorabilia allows fans to get up close and personal with their favorite stars. Yes, we're talking bodily fluids folks.
From feces to urine to snot and even a kidney stone, nearly anything touched, used or (ack) excreted be a famous person can be a money-maker these days. Have a used tissue from a beautiful blonde actress? That'll get you $5,300. Find French toast that was partially eaten by a boy band stud? You can make $3,100 from that.Just like the strangest celebrity eBay auctions these wacky pieces of celebrity memorabilia show that people will buy just about anything belonging to a celebrity, regardless how gross.
William Shatner's Kidney Stone
In 2006, the online casino GoldenPalace.com was the lucky buyer of a real life kidney stone passed by none other than actor William Shatner. The Priceline.com spokesperson and Star Trek actor not only banked a cool $25,000 for the stone, but also included a surgical stint and string, both used to help him pass the stone, in the deal. Bonus: Shatner even gave advice on what to do with his kidney stone, since clearly there is only one way to show off such a find. He said, "the stone was so big, you'd want to wear it on your finger."
Michael Jackson's DNA Perfume
Extracting DNA for weird purposes just got a bit weirder with the introduction of a perfume made using DNA extracted from hair allegedly from the late pop singer Michael Jackson. A company called My DNA Fragrance will make just that using DNA from Jackson and other celebrities like Samuel L. Jackson, Elvis and others. What's that smell? Jacko's DNA of course.
Britney Spears's Pregnancy Test
Because clearly things that celebrities urinate on are the ultimate collectors' items, a used pregnancy test supposedly belonging to pop star Britney Spears was auctioned off back in 2005. At the time, Spears and her then-husband Kevin Federline were staying at a Los Angeles hotel, where the star allegedly took the test. While Spears gave birth to her first child later that year, the test sold to GoldenPalace.com for $5,001, which went to charity.
Justin Timberlake's French Toast
Forget finding Jesus or the Virgin Mary in food when you can have half-eaten food from your favorite famous person. That was perhaps what was running through the head of N-Sync fan Kathy Summers who spent $3,154 to own a piece of French toast partially eaten by pop hottie Justin Timberlake in 2006. This would be no breakfast treat for Summers though as she stated her plans for the memorabilia would be to "probably freeze-dry it, then seal it... then put it on my dresser." Yep, completely normal.
