Have you ever gone to an auction and seen something innocuous, like a hat, or a cane with a weird knob at the top of it? Who would buy that? Why is the price so high? Then you notice that’s a hat or cane with a weird knob that was owned by some celebrity, and go “yeah, that explains it”?

Big-time celebrities put stuff on auction all the time in order to raise money for charity, get a tax write-off, clean out their home, or all three. However, while most celebrity auctions include clothes, jewelry, shoes, or props from a movie, sometimes it gets a little bit bizarre, unique, or over the top. You never know when Britney Spears is going to auction off her chewed gum again.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most expensive, weird, and overall unique items that celebrities were able to sell in auctions.
