This past Friday, on the 1 year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, an auction was held that included famous memorabilia from the King of Pop.
This included the classic Swarovski crystal-studded glove that Michael Jackson wore for his Victory 84’ tour, which was auctioned off for $190,000.
Darren Julien of Julien’s Auctions, ran the auction in Planet Hollywood in Vegas and claimed that the bidding was “unlike anything we ever experienced.”
The majority of items brought 10 times more than there estimated value. This included a pair of Jackson’s loafers that originally went for $2,000 to $3,000, which were auctioned off for $90,000.
The famous custom jacket that the King of Pop wore for a Barbara Walters interview went for $120,000. Wanda Kelley of Los Angeles was the winning bidder of the glove, and also bought a number of Jackson’s Albums as well.
It was reported that Kelley was prepared to bid higher if necessary. One of the last autographs Jackson signed, and dated June 24, 2009, in his handwriting, went for $21,000.
