MJ`s glove fetches $190,000

London: A crystal-studded glove used by the late King of Pop Michael Jackson has fetched $190,000 at an action.

The glove, worn during the Jacksons` 1984 Victory tour, was among over 200 items on offer, which sold for just under $1m in total at Julien`s Auctions at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas at the weekend, reports bbc.co.uk.

"It just shows you Michael Jackson is the most sought after and most collectible celebrity of all time. It was just phenomenal," said Darren Julien who organised the auction. "People flew in from Asia, Russia, all over. Now that he`s gone, we now realise the true legend we lost."

A pair of Jackson`s loafers, which he wore on stage, were expected to fetch between $2,000-$3,000, but sold for $90,000.

One of his jackets fetched $120,000, even though its estimate was between $6,000-$8,000.

Other memorabilia from the likes of Elvis Presley, Prince, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix were also up for sale. A lock of Presley`s hair was sold for $20,000.
