Michael Jackson's Infamous White Glove to Be Auctioned Off

Michael Jackson’s infamous white glove he wore on the Jackson’s 1984 Victory Tour is going on the auction block. The glove, which is covered in crystals, is the most iconic piece of Michael Jackson memorabilia.

It was designed by Ted Shell of Ted Shell Designs, and matches Michael’s special Suit of Lights. The item also features bugle beads and Austrian crystal rhinestones and is fitted with 50 small lights powered by a battery placed in the cuff of the glove.

Profiles In History spokesman Marc Kruskol says, "The consignor set the price at $60,000 to $80,000 before Michael Jackson's death, so we'll start there, but the price for this item could even approach $1 million."

It will go up for sale at the Profiles in History auction in October. We can’t even imagine how much money this piece will go for. We hope an museum bids on it, and it doesn’t go to an individual. This is the type of memorabilia that belongs somewhere like the Hard Rock in Vegas.

In the meantime, Profiles in History bosses plan to display the glove at their booth at San Diego’s ComicCon later this month. A spokesman says, "We want fans to have the opportunity to view this iconic piece of entertainment history."
