How much would you pay for Michael Jackson’s sparkly glove? Maybe you’re like me and you wouldn’t pay anything for it because that’s just not your scene, or maybe you’re more like Wanda Kelley, the woman who paid $190,000 for it.
The glove was the most prized item at the auction of MJ’s memorabilia that took place this weekend, but there were a few other popular pieces. There was a custom jacket he wore during at interview that went for $120,000, a pair of loafers he wore on stage that sold for $90,000, and an autograph Michael gave on the day before he died that went for $18,750.
Like I said, I certainly wouldn’t spend thousands of dollars on gloves or shoes (even if I did have the money) to commemorate Michael Jackson. For one, I’m not a huge fan (no disrespect intended, I just never got that into him). For two, I would much rather listen to two of my favorite boys with guitars, James Morrison and Jay Brannan, cover one of my favorite MJ songs, “Man in the Mirror.”
