Over the past few days there have been two auctions for two of the best singer/songwriters in the business, who sadly are no longer with us. The first was for John Lennon, which we recently discussed, and the other was for Michael Jackson. More than 100 items were sold at Macau, China, fetching over one million dollars.
Two of the memorabilia items between them fetched $425,000; these were a black crystal-studded glove along with an arm brace and a basketball signed by The King of Pop and basketball legend Michael Jordan. These went for $180,000 and $245,000 respectively.
Bidders from around the world attended the auction, which does not surprise us considering continued interest in the late great pop star.
Yahoo News reports that the Macau auction was not all about Michael Jackson though, other items from Bruce Lee and Madonna were also auctioned off; in total there were 435 pieces of memorabilia sold.
