Michael Jackson’s Swarovski-crystal-studded glove which he wore during his 1984 Victory tour sold this week at auction, fetching $190,000. Various other Michael Jackson memorabilia were also up for sale, helping earn approximately $1 million.
200 items were up for grabs through Julien’s Auctions and the bidding took place at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
Some items, including Michael’s glove, brought up to 10 times the expected value.
Darren Julien told the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“It just shows you Michael Jackson is the most sought after and most collectible celebrity of all time. It was just phenomenal.”
While it’s not surprising top Michael Jackson memorabilia can fetch so much money, it’s still amazing that it was so undervalued at the start of the auction.
