Michael Jackson’s white glove to be auctioned for $20,000

Sale of Jackson memorabilia will also include a prototype of the black leather jacket the singer wore on the cover of his album Bad.

A rare white sequined glove once owned by Michael Jackson could be yours to own. Auction house Nate D Sanders is selling the piece of memorabilia on 30 July, with bidding for the item beginning at $20,000.

While this is not exactly a steal, it is considerably cheaper than Jackson gloves which have been auctioned before. The one he wore while debuting the Moonwalk went for $350,000 in 2009, six months after Jackson’s death at age 50. Another auction in June 2010 saw a different glove sold for $160,000.

The right-handed glove was given by Jackson to his artist friend, Paul Bedard, whom the musician commissioned to create over a dozen paintings for Jackson’s home and Neverland ranch. Bedard sold the glove to a private collection in 2005. The artist’s paintings for Jackson featured historical figures – Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Albert Einstein and ET – sporting the glove.
