Michael Jackson sequinned glove to make $100,000 on June 14?

A sequinned glove worn by Michael Jackson during his Victory tour (1984) is estimated to make $80,000-100,000 in an auction at The Memorabilia Vault in New York on June 14.

It was created by designer Bill Whitten and is made up of 1,200 Swarovski crystals, which took 40 hours to sew on.

Following the tour's conclusion, it was returned to Whitten who placed it in storage - where it remained for the next 30 years.

In 2012, a rare black glove worn by Jackson during the 1984 MTV Video Awards sold for $199,069 at Nate D Sanders.

The 1986 American Music Award presented to Jackson for his role in writing the 1985 charity single We Are the World is valued at $30,000-40,000.

In 1995, Jackson gave it to Jonathon Lambert - a boy sick with Leukaemia who visited the Neverland Ranch through the Make-a-Wish Foundation - after Jackson learned of his love for the song.

Part of the proceeds from its sale are to be donated back to the foundation.

In addition to the other lots in the sale, a single strand of Jackson's hair will also be offered with an estimate of $1,000-2,000.

We are delighted to be able to offer you a strand of Jackson's hair for a fraction of the price.
