When it comes to deceased artist memorabilia, Michael Jackson’s white glove would easily rank as one of the most coveted items on any list.
Luckily for collectors, it is also not too expensive item at an upcoming auction.
Billboard reports the upcoming July 30 auction Nate D. Sanders auction will start the bidding at just $20,000. Not to say it won’t fetch a few million in the end but that is relatively low considered the late King of Pop’s popularity.
Before his death in 2009, Jackson gave the glove to his friend, artist Paul Bedard who in turn, painted more than a dozen pieces of historical figures sporting the glove for portraits at the fame Neverland ranch. The winning bidder of Michael Jackson’s white glove some of the aforementioned artwork, a photo of Bedard wearing the glove, and a typed authenticity declaration so it can never be misconstrued for being fake.
