Jackson Memorabilia Helps To Fetch $1 Million At Chinese Auction

An auction of celebrity memorabilia, including MICHAEL JACKSON's iconic Swarovski crystal glove and a velvet ball gown worn by PRINCESS DIANA, pulled in $1 million (£666,666) at top auction house Julien's first Asian pop culture sale.
Hundreds of items which once belonged to the late Thriller hitmaker and fellow superstars went under the hammer on Saturday (09Oct10) at the Ponte 16 resort in MACau, China.
Jackson's black crystal glove went for $180,000 (£120,000) to an unidentified internet bidder, while a fellow online buyer picked up a basketball signed by the tragic singer and Michael Jordan for a staggering $245,000 (£163,000).
Other lots which sold included memorabilia from Ghostbusters, the Batman film franchise and The Last Samurai, and there will also be items from the lives and careers of Madonna, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.

This is HORRIBLE. Fans who want Neverland to become a museum/tourist destination can forget it. Most of Michael's hard earned possessions are being auctioned off. The estate executors are too busy making money for themselves instead of putting a STOP to these auctions. The museum in Gary Indiana will NEVER be built and Joe Jackson is involved so it's bound to be a shady insult to Michael's memory. It's sad things got so bad financially that his personal treasures were all seized. Those things should belong to his children!!
