London: The iconic jacket Michael Jackson wore in his hit music video ‘Thriller’ is going under the hammer on Sunday at the Julien`s Auctions Gallery, Los Angeles, to mark the second death anniversary of the pop superstar.

The black and red leather number is expected to fetch more than 400,000 dollars in the auction, reports the Sky News.

Other Jackson memorabilia up for grabs include the famous glove worn at the 1984 American Music Awards, a fedora he wore on stage and a wig from the 2009 news conference announcing the ‘This Is It tour’.

Jackson’s costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush have put up the jacket for sale, since they were given the item by the singer before his death.
