Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Clothing,

Michael Jackson glove auctionOne of the most iconic pieces of clothing in music history is going up for auction later this year.

‘s glove - the one he wore during that memorable Motown performance in 1983 - is just one of several Jackson items that will be made available. The glittery article that dazzled during his Moonwalk is unlike the many others in the singer’s wardrobe. The store-bought glove was adorned with hand cut rhinestones. It was also left-handed.

Other collectables going to the highest bidder include a fedora worn by the King of Pop during the 1995 MTV Music Awards, several “Thriller” zombie costumes and a “Bad” jacket.

The November 21 auction will also feature an early demo tape from Madonna and never-released lyrics from Jimi Hendrix. For more information on the event, click here.

Props from ABC’s Lost Up for Auction

Kate in Lost with toy plane

As hard as it may be to admit, will soon be coming to an end. But a piece of that show could stay with you forever.

Come next May, key props from the ABC series will be put up for auction. And this Thursday, lucky attendees at the Comic Con gathering in San Diego will get an early preview.

Several of those future collectibles include Hurley’s winning (yet apparently cursed) lottery ticket, Charlie’s guitar, Mr. Eko’s club, the letter Sawyer wrote to Mr. Sawyer, Locke’s hunting knife and Kate’s toy plane. Articles of clothing and set pieces will also go to the highest bidder.

According to Dinesh Lathi, VP of Seller Experience says this will help those who don’t sell high volume. The change, which takes effect beginning June 16 and is optional, will not apply to fixed price listings.

MJ CatalogWe guess it is truly the end of a pop star era with a planned auction from Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. Julien’s Auctions will be offering over 2,000 items that include his white-jeweled glove, arcade games, Disney memorabilia, and garden accessories. If you would like to partake or simply keep track of the action, Julien’s will be broadcasting on national TV and stream video through their site on April 21 through 25.

No word on if any of this is related to Michael Jackson’s medical issues.
