MJ's crystal-encrusted glove fetches USD 200k at LA auction
One of Michael Jackson's single gloves has been sold for 200,000 dollars at an auction in Los Angeles.
The Swarovski-crystal-encrusted earned the highest price fetched for a memorabilia from the late King of Pop, News.com.au reported.
Nate D Sanders auction house said that the 'Dangerous' hitmaker had worn the black glove - a departure for the singer, who had previously only worn white ones - at the 1984 American Music Awards, when he was honoured for 'Thriller.'
Jackson had originally given the glove to a terminally ill boy during a visit arranged by a charity organisation.
The glove had been accompanied by a book with three Jackson autographs and an inscription that read "My original glove, love, MJ."
The auction house did not disclose the name of the buyer.
In 2010, a beaded white glove worn by Jackson sold for 192,000 dollars in a Las Vegas auction, on the first anniversary of the star's death.
Also sold at the auction this week were one of the Jackson's 'Beat It' jackets, worn on the 1984 'Thriller' tour, which went for 84,422 dollars.
