With the help of Gillette (since they run shit in Boston), Shane Victorino and David Ortiz have placed their beards, and the razors used to shave them off, on eBay, with the proceeds going toward charity.
Up for auction is a 100% authentic Shane Victorino 2013 Championship Beard Ball, grown, groomed and worn with pride through the 2012-2013 season by none other than the Flyin’ Hawaiian himself. This fully authentic beard hair was trimmed and shaved clean on November 4th at Gillette’s World Shaving Headquarters in Boston as part of a charity shave-off. Included with the beard ball is the actual Fusion ProGlide razor used in the shave and a card of authenticity signed by Victorino.
All proceeds go to Movember, the 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. For more information, please visit Movember.com.

PUBES! THOSE ARE PUBES!! COULDN’T THEY HAVE CHOSEN SOMEONE WHOSE FACIAL HAIR DOESN’T LOOK LIKE PUBES?!
The current bid for Victorino’s short and curlies is $1,650 with over eight days remaining. Why do I feel like I have a hairball in my throat?
*But honestly, if someone put Cliff Lee’s 2009 toenail clippings on eBay, I’d go up to five figures.
