A fine line exists between superfan and stalker, and the weirdest celebrity memorabilia ever collected proves that point. Forget the autographs and the bobbleheads, this memorabilia allows fans to get up close and personal with their favorite stars. Yes, like bodily fluids close. Nearly anything touched, used, or (ack) excreted by a famous person can be a money-maker these days. While maybe not quite the most expensive memorabilia out there, odd celebrity trinkets fetch more moola than you might think. Have a used tissue from a beautiful blond actress? That'll get you $5,300. Find French toast partially eaten by a boy band stud? You just earned yourself $3,100 for 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 of how gross it might be.
It's creepy enough that a lab worker kept a vial of Ronald Reagan's blood after she treated him at her hospital following his near assassination. It's even creepier that it received bids of up to $31K when it went up for auction. The winning bidder eventually donated the blood to the Reagan Foundation, after much encouragement on their part.15516Is this weird?
Justin Timberlake's French Toast
*NSYNC fan Kathy Summers spent $3,154 to own a piece of French toast partially eaten by singer Justin Timberlake. 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." At least she's not letting it go to waste.16019Is this weird?
Michael Jackson's DNA Perfume
Extracting DNA got a bit weirder when someone allegedly extracted DNA from hair that belonged to the late pop singer Michael Jackson and put it into a perfume. A company called My DNA Fragrance, true to its name, creates their scents using DNA from Jackson and celebrities like Samuel L. Jackson, Elvis, and others.13917Is this weird?
A piece of singed hair from MJ's infamous 1984 Pepsi incident went for $1,600 in an auction in 2009. While MJ was shooting a commercial with various members of the Jackson clan, a planned explosion went off too soon and set Jackson's head aflame. He suffered third-degree burns that eventually got him hooked on pain meds.12012Is this weird?
