LAS VEGAS (AP).- Bidders from around the world bought up Michael Jackson memorabilia worth nearly $1 million at an auction in Las Vegas on the anniversary of his death.
The biggest payout was $190,000 for the Swarovski-crystal-studded glove the late pop star wore on his 1984 Victory Tour.
Darren Julien of Julien Auctions says it was unlike anything he's ever seen in 15 years of business. He says some items, like the glove, brought 10 times more than the estimated value.
The glove had been expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000.
Julien says it shows Michael Jackson is "the most sought after and most collectible celebrity of all time."
