Jackson Memorabilia A Big Hit At Anniversary Auction

The world can't get enough of MICHAEL JACKSON - the King of Pop's memorabilia has gone under the hammer in Las Vegas for extraordinary prices.
The big sale of clothing, documents and furniture has only just started - and already experts at Julien's Auctions have been left staggered by the prices items are fetching.
A custom-made jacket, which was expected to go under the hammer at $8,000 (GBP5,300), went for a staggering $120,000 (GBP80,000), while an autograph the late pop superstar gave to a fan the day before he died sold for $21,000 (GBP14,000) - 26 times more than its estimate.
Also among the early highlights, Jackson's MTV Moonman award for the video of Scream, which went under the hammer for $43,750 (GBP29,170) - more than six times its estimate - and the King of Pop's signed white fedora hat, which was expected to fetch $3,000 (GBP2,000). That sold for a whopping $56,250 (GBP37,500).
The auction took place on the first anniversary of Jackson's death.

Memobiriala that many people didnt want to have sold on his anniversery. Because it was his stuff. Or it belongs to his childeren or whatever. Still people are paying big money for this crap. And fans are saying their endless thanks for it.Money, money, money, in a rich mans world. Do they know why Julien has this auction? Cause many years ago the jackson family where involved in so many lawsuits. Cause of their greed they lost it all. And gave Julien a big building full of Jacksonfamily stuff. Julien had to have some compasions becuase the Jackson's cuoldn't pay anymore laywers to win the case. Intersting stuff there was to see on a documentary about this years ago. Including the skin bleaching creme. "No, I do not bleach my skin"., were the words of MJ. Yes, he had vitaligo. But he also was'nt honest with many things in his life. And if the Jackson family had these great debts. To give Julien the stuff for compensiastion. Why, with all his money, could't Michael by his own stuff back? Cause he also made a mess out of his life. He could,t even by his own golden Thriller record back. It has been said the sultan of brunai or Bahrain had to buy his stuff back. And even if he could bought it back. It would be a damns shame to have bought his own golden Thriller album back. Sick wast of time all this MJ stuff. He was the biggest entertainer of all time trhough recors and video's. That will last forever. But his life was getting more and more and more and more and more ande more more and ......a big mess.....untill it killed him. Ohm shante.
