Michael Jackson glove sells for £29,500
Sunday 06 September 2009
A bejewelled white glove Michael Jackson tossed to an Australian fan more than a decade ago has sold at auction for 57,600 Australian dollars (£29,500).
Charlotte Stanes, spokeswoman for the Melbourne auction house Bonhams and Goodman, said a buyer for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas beat five others for the late King of Pop's glove.
Jackson visited Australia in 1996 as part of his HIStory world tour.
While in Sydney, he attended the Australian premiere of the film Ghosts, in which he had a starring role.
National head of collectables Giles Moon said at the end of the screening, Jackson tossed the glove at audience member Bill Hibble, who has since died.
Jackson died in June aged 50.
