Michael's Own Records

As soon as the ebay site can be set up, many more Michael Jackson items, some going for only $10, will be on sale.

Bidders from everywhere bid almost one million dollars for Michael Jackson memorabilia over the weekend, much more than expected at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

One Auctioneer Bill Gillespie stated that they had no idea the items would bring such bids.

"We thought, maybe $25,000 to $35,000 for the glove which went for the highest bid. Then it goes for $192,000.

"Everything brought about ten times the amount we expected. I'm tired and so are my partners."

A pair of Jackson's loafers worn on stage that were listed as worth $2,000 to $3,000 went for $90,000.

The custom jacket that the pop singer was wearing during his television interview with Barbara Walters was listed at $6,000 to $8,000. It sold for $120,000.

A white Fedora sold for $56,250. One of the last autographs Jackson signed, and dated June 24, 2009, in his handwriting, went for nearly $21,000.

Meanwhile Joe Jackson, father of Michael will offer the following on eBay: Toe Nail Clippings, one square inch of Michaels old briefs, fifteen curly pieces of Michael's hair, copies of Michael's pictures alone and with family members ages 2-17, half of a banana sandwich he once threw at Lisa Marie Presley, rocks that Michael once stepped on while running around the house, baggies of dirt Michael once walked on and about 10,000 in all.

Be sure to watch for announcements of when the bidding begins!
