For $20,000 you can own one of Michael Jackson's sequined gloves
Auction house Nate Sanders is selling one of Micheal Jackson's sequined gloves at a starting bid of $20,000. In case you were wondering, it's the right one. (Sorry lefties.) Other gloves that worn by Jackson have gone for $350,000 in 2009, shortly after the pop star's death, and $160,000 in 2010.
The glove was given to artist Paul Bedard by Jackson, who was commissioned by the King of Pop to create dozens of paintings featuring historical figures and Jackson, all wearing shades and Jackson’s iconic glove. Bedard sold the glove to a private collection in 2005. The winning bidder will not only take home the glove, but also a typed declaration by Bedard announcing the glove’s authenticity, images of the art he created for Jackson, and a photo of Bedard wearing the glove.
