A Houston-area collector became the proud owner of a 3-inch hair lock that was snipped from Ernesto "Che" Guevara before his burial in 1967.
Bill Butler, who bid over the phone, said he was a collector of 1960s items and the hair lock would fit in well.
Butler paid $100,000 for the tress, which sold at auction Thursday.
