Magglio Ordonez Auctions his Long Hair, Skybox Tickets, and Signed Bat for Charity

For those who thought that hair related sports memorabilia was a passing fad, think again. After years of letting his hair grow longer and longer, Detroit Tigers Star Magglio Ordonez's hair has become someone of a star unto itself. Recently he decided to call it quits - all in the name of charity.  His man mane has now made its way onto eBay as part of an auction to benefit the Imerman Angels Charity.

This isn't merely a strand, or even a lock, of hair.  From the images available in the auction , it is evident that their is very little hair left on Ordonez's head. Just don't be surprised if you see an abundance of Magglio Ordonez DNA hair relics pop up in 2010 Allen and Ginter Baseball that are numbered out of several million.

In addition to sacrificing his hair for the auction, Magglio Ordonez threw in 18 tickets to sit in his personal skybox for the September 15th, 2009 Tigers game, and an autographed game issued baseball bat. All  proceeds from the sale of the items will be donated to Imerman Angels.

The auction has caught fire since it was first listed last week.  There are currently a whopping 620+ people who have added the listing to their eBay watchlists.  With over 5 days left to go in the auction, bidding has already reached $6,000.

About Imerman Angels

Imerman Angels connects a person fighting cancer today (cancer fighter) with someone who has beaten the same type of cancer (cancer survivor). The relationship provides a fighter the opportunity to ask personal questions and receive encouragement from someone who is uniquely familiar with the situation. The relationship provides a survivor the opportunity to personally help a fighter as he or she battles the disease.

In addition, Imerman Angels also connects “caregivers." A caregiver is a friend or family member who is supporting a cancer fighter. Like fighters and survivors, they wish to be paired up with another caregiver who relates to and understands their situation. For instance, we have introduced the mother of a three-year-old cancer fighter to the mother of a four-year-old cancer survivor.

Mike Smeth is the CEO and Founder of The Cardboard Connection. After collecting baseball cards as a child, he took a 12-year hiatus from the hobby. One muggy summer day in 2006 he unexpectedly came across his childhood card collection while packing up for a move. He began sorting through them so he could sell them on Craigslist. Somewhere between the 3rd and 4th box, he rediscovered his passion for collecting and hasn't looked back since. You can find Mike on Google+ and Twitter @mikesmethcc.
