Michael Jackson glove up for auction


One of MICHAEL JACKSON's sequinned white gloves is set to go under the hammer on Thursday (30Jul15), with bidding starting at $20,000 (£12,500).

The King of Pop gave the right-handed accessory to his friend, artist Paul Bedard, and now it is going up for sale online via the Nate D. Sanders auction house.

It's the third such glove to go up for auction following the singer's 2009 death - one of the sequinned items Jackson wore when he debuted his famous Moonwalk was snapped up for a stunning $420,000 (£262,500) six months after his passing, while another sold in 2010 for $160,000 (£100,000).

Meanwhile, another top collectors' item available at auction is the black leather jacket the superstar wore on the cover for his Bad album and in the title song's accompanying music video in 1987. The coat is priced at a minimum of $10,000 (£6,250).
