Michael Jackson: The King of Pop's Collection to be Auctioned

Posted by Fara Kearnes on February 16, 2009 4:42 PM |

jackson in elizabethan costumeThe upcoming Michael Jackson auction will offer over 2,000 items of the strange and mundane from the gloved one's Neverland Ranch. It will include such items as his gaudy Rolls Royce stretch limo, rhinestone-encrusted socks, Peter Pan stuff, and even a 1995 oil portrait of Jackson dressed as Elizabethan era royalty and holding a King's crown.

Jackson even owns the metal hand props worn by Johnny Depp in the movie "Edward Scissorhands"! No sign of the Elephant man's remains though...

Other items for auction include full suits of armor, Jackson's fancy military jackets with decorations and medals, several custom-made crowns, an ornately carved throne with red velvet, more Disney stuff, the fedora he wore in the Billie Jean video and other costumes, child size cars, collectible children's books, and a lot of bronze and marble statuary.

The four-day public event will be held from April 14th to 20th at Julien's Auction House in Beverly Hills. A portion of the proceeds will benefit MusiCares, a charity from The National Recording Academy. This is the first sale of his property that Jackson has sanctioned.

The Guardian has a photo gallery which shows some of the more elaborate pieces for sale.
