A collection of Michael Jackson memorabilia will be auctioned at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino tomorrow, May 30th.
The event is being billed as the largest Jackson auction ever. There will be over 1,000 original Michael Jackson costumes for sale.
Universal bought the items from the New Jersey businessman Henry Vaccaro, who bought them in 2002 from a bankruptcy court auction. Universal claim they have spent another $2 million just to transport the goods from New Jersey to Las Vegas.
Jackson tried to halt the auction, but two weeks ago reached a confidential settlement and dropped the opposition.
Some of the most popular items that will be offered at the casino auction are:
Bill Whitten-designed militaristic red coat with gold rope, that belonged to Michael Jackson
The 1987 contract detailing his $30M purchase of the California ranch now known as the "Neverland."
A worn telegram from July 6, 1984, from Marlon Brando encouraging Michael Jackson before a show.
Also many paintings, personal clothing of Michael and Janet Jackson, lyrics of the pop-singer and more.
