Published Dec 12, 2008Maybe it's hard economic times, maybe it's to be charitable or maybe it's just the lack of storage space now that Neverland is gone, but Michael Jackson will auction off more than 2,000 personal items this spring, including his iconic "Billie Jean" glove.
Next April, the King of Pop will put a vast array of items up for bidding through Julien's Auctions, with a portion of the proceeds going to the charity Musicares.
Besides the glittery Jacko glove, "an astounding array of Fine & Decorative Art items" will be up for grabs, including life-size sculptures, arcade games, paintings, "Disneyana" and even the entry gates to the Neverland Ranch. In fact, there are so many items in the auction that a six-volume book has been printed to lay out what's in every lot. Also, a limited-edition catalogue box set has been printed, which is signed and numbered by M.J. himself and is now selling for $500, plus shipping and handling at Julien's Auctions' website.
The auction kicks off on April 21 and runs through April 25 in West Hollywood.
There is no word if Bubbles is up for sale.
