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