You might read the above headline and ask, "What for?" Well, apparently a gambling site called OnlineGamblingPal (OGP) purcahsed a piece of Michael Jackson's hair with the goal of turning it into a "one-off roulette ball." The hair sold for $10,871, and the new owners call its upcoming transformation into a gambling tool a "suitably unique tribute" to the deceased King of Pop. According to OGP's news story:
The ball itself will be made to the highest professional standards, ensuring it will be eligible for use at any licensed casino’s roulette table. Indeed, considering Jackson dedicated his life to entertaining millions, the prospect of this very special ball captivating crowds at roulette tables seems like a fitting use for it.
