Jackson Sells Clothing

Michael Jackson is unloading his stuff – more than 2,000 items of it – and in the middle of it is the “Rosebud” of Jackson’s inventory, one of the most important items of ’80s pop culture.

Jackson’s selling his glittery glove. The glove. The one that appeared in the “Billie Jean” video and spawned countless bad jokes.

It will go up for sale April 21 as part of a five-day auction, Julien’s Auctions announced Dec. 10. The winning bid will probably be, oh, at least over a dollar.

Jackson is also unloading the gates that once led to Neverland Ranch. Bids will be accepted in person and online. The sale is to be streamed live on Auction Network.

Jackson plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to MusiCares, a charitable organization founded by the Recording Academy to help musicians in need.

The only reason the public will get a chance to bid on the glove is because of Jackson’s famous money woes. Of course, the public bidding on the glove is one thing, losing the auction to a Chinese corporation is another.
