Jacko memorabilia fetches $1mn in Macau

Macau: An auction of some 100 items of Michael Jackson memorabilia has fetched more than USD 1 million, with a basketball autographed by the late singer and Michael Jordan netting USD 245,000.

Showing the lingering appeal of the ‘King of Pop,’ the sale Saturday in the southern Chinese city of Macau drew bidders from around the world.

An unidentified Internet bidder paid USD 180,000 for a black crystal-studded glove and an arm brace Jackson wore while filming a promotional video for his 1995 album ‘HIStory.’ An Internet bidder also bought the basketball.

Of the 435 total items up for sale, other non-Jackson items sold included a costume worn by Bruce Lee during the filming of ‘Game of Death’ and a costume Madonna donned during her Girlie Show world tour.
