Mass memorabilia auction held on anniversary of Jackson's death

The iconic crystal studded glove worn by Michael Jackson has been sold at a US auction for $190,000 (£126,000).

Jackson wore the garment during his 1984 ‘Victory’ tour, and it was among 200 pieces of memorabilia that went under the hammer at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, raising just under $1m (£664,055) in total, reports ABC News.

One of his jackets also went for $120,000 (£79,686), even though it was estimated to sell between $6,000 (£3,984) and $8,000 (£5,312).

The auction marked the anniversary of Jackson‘s death a year ago on Friday (June 25).

Other items belonging to Elvis Presley, Prince, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix were also sold.
