Bieber's shoes worth more than Honest Abe's hair, less than a Hitler watercolour

Justin Bieber is cementing his rep among the greats. A pair of stinky sneakers once worn by the Canadian heart-throb fetched a smooth $62,000 at auction yesterday.

That's more than double what a lock of Abe Lincoln's hair went for at an auction in Dallas last year.

But the sum is eclipsed by the $162,000 fetched by the recent sale of a water colour by the obscure Austrian painter Adolph Hitler.  Hitler of course went on to notoriety in his second career as the democratically elected leader of neighbouring Germany.
