David Ortiz and Shane Victorino are taking playoff beards to a whole new level.

When the Boston Red Sox duo trimmed their facial hair following the team’s World Series win earlier this fall, every strand was saved and it was revealed Thursday they would be auctioned off for charity.

The remains of the beards were balled up and packaged in a glass trophy case, along with the razor used to shave them. Bidding for the unique memorabilia is live on eBay and will end Nov. 30. All proceeds go to Movember.

“I’m glad that the beard that helped me throughout the series can now help raise funds for a great organization like Movember,” Ortiz said in a statement through Gillette.

Boston defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games to win the championship.
