The glove drew the highest price at the “Icons and Idols” auction, held at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills. Other Jackson items that were sold include a signed jacket and a fedora he wore onstage, which went for $96,000 and $72,000 respectively. A costume made for Jackson’s pet chimp Bubbles was also reportedly up for auction, but it is unknown whether it sold.
Other Jackson gloves have drawn big prices. Last year, one that the singer wore during his famous “Moonwalk” performance in 1983 went for $350,000, and a glove thrown by Jackson to an Australian fan during a 1996 concert sold for nearly $50,000.
