Guernsey's to offer treasures once owned by Michael Jackson
The Jackson 5's First Label Contract. Estimate $50,000 - $100,000.

NEW YORK, NY.- On October 23rd, an auction of beloved items once owned by Michael Jackson will be sold online by Guernsey’s. The items can be previewed and bid upon now at, and

In 2009, a major collection of exceptional items owned by Michael Jackson, world famous entertainer and global icon, were going to be auctioned. Many of the items adorned Michael’s fabled Santa Barbara ranch and private amusement park. Legal issues arose however, and the auction was cancelled. Michael’s countless fans around the world were terribly disappointed to have lost the chance to acquire treasures once owned by the legendary performer.

One fan was so upset that he pursued the matter legally and, after a multi-year effort, became the only person given access to Michael’s Collection. He acquired forty-eight bronze sculptures along with an array of other beloved items once owned by the legendary performer. Now, more than a decade later, the collector has decided to share Michael’s cherished items with the world and give fans the chance to own a piece of the King of Pop’s legacy.

The bronze sculptures range from the French 99” tall Gloria Victus by Antonin Mercie to a joyful figure of Peter Pan. Among the other items to be sold from the Collection will be a model of the Jolly Roger pirate ship reportedly given to Michael by none other than Elizabeth Taylor, a life-sized figure of Marilyn Monroe and a pair of massive malachite candelabras. Importantly, the auction will also include the original contract signed by Joe Jackson (Michael’s father) to produce the Jackson Five’s first recording!

Prospective bidders should note that all of Michael’s items will be sold without minimum reserves. The Collection of the King of Pop: Michael Jackson Auction in 2009 was slated to have been a "blockbuster.” Although many of Michael’s possessions may never be sold, this beautiful collection will be. On October 23, you’ll have the chance to be amongst a handful of people around the world to own one of Michael’s beloved items.
