"The Guinness Book of Oddities" by Geoff Tibballs states on page 110 that he "clipped off a tiny lock of hair from each woman he slept with and put them in individual envelopes, each bearing the owner's name. Some 7100 such envelopes were found in his bedroom cupboard after he died." It seems a bit far-fetched to me!
