Michael Jackson Glove Heads To Auction

The coming months and years will likely see a flood of Michael Jackson memorabilia. Some will be common or have only a tangential relationship to the superstar. Others that have a direct connection to Jackson's iconography will be more valuable. Michael Jackson wore many gloves while performing and so they will be of varying prices but one of only two Michael Jackson electric-white gloves used during the 1984 Victory Tour is likely to fetch a high price when Profiles in History auctions it off in October.

The glove was consigned by its designer Ted Shell
who went on the Victory Tour to protect and maintain the glove which is covered with bugle beads, Austrian crystal rhinestones and fitted with 50 small lights which were powered by a nine-volt battery in the cuff. After the tour Jackson gave Shell one of the gloves and kept the other. Joseph Maddalena of Profiles in History estimated the value at $60,000 to $80,000, but it could sell for much more. The glove is one of many Jackson items that will go up for sale at the auction on October 1 and 2, 2009. Other items include costumes, a platinum record for the 20 millionth copy of "Thriller" and one of his fedoras, another of Jackson's signature accessories.

  1. Michael Jackson earnings already at $200 million for 2009 and new albums in the works. Funds might also come from sale of dozens of memorabilia and merchandise ventures along with a new film which just got approved. Let's see how much does the auction of glove and official Opus costs. Michael Jackson's most ardent fans would be excited to know all this. I like Michael Jackson a lot, so, started collecting all the information related to him (more than 200 sites).
