Big Papi Beard Bid On eBay Nearing $5,000

When the Gillette company announced they would be auctioning off Red Sox beard clippings for charity, we all knew it would be a success. As of this afternoon, a clipping of World Series MVP David Ortiz's beard is fetching nearly $5,000 on eBay. Being sold as "2013 Championship Beard Balls", the items will surely help out the targeted charity—Movember. It's a 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." When you shell out your five grand for a Big Papi hairball, you also receive "the actual Fusion ProGlide Styler used in the shave and a card of authenticity signed by Big Papi himself." What more could you ask for under the Christmas Tree?
