Stage Outfits For Auction
The Auction House, Profiles In History, will stage a two day auction on October 8th in Calabasas Hills, near Los Angeles.
Many wonderful items will be featured in the auction, from the days of silent movies right up to the present. Included in the auction will be stage outfits worn by Michael and his brothers during their early career. These colourful costumes were all worn by a young Michael and his brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon during their ‘Jackson 5’ days. The outfits include a yellow tie-dye shirt worn by a thirteen year old Michael as he sang ‘I’ll Be There’ on the first episode of Diana Ross’ own TV show in 1971. The shirt is part of a lot which also includes outfits worn by Tito and Marlon, is expected to fetch £12,000.
The most expensive item of Jackson clothing is a red V-necked jumper encrusted with red rhinestones worn by Michael at the 1981 American Music Awards.
Michael wore the jumper over the top of a white silk tuxedo collar and a black bow tie as he accepted two awards for his first solo album ‘Off The Wall’.
That lot, which also features a white fedora hat with ‘Michael Jackson’ stamped in gold inside the hat band, is expected to sell for up to £36,000.
