Micheal Jackson’s personal possessions are making their way to the auction block two years to the day he passed away.
Julien’s Auction House anticipates items such as the red and black jacket Jackson wore in the “Thriller” music video and the white Fedora hat he wore in the “Smooth Criminal” video, will be sold at 30 percent to 50 percent higher rates post death.
“Micheal Jackson has a global appeal like no other celebrity has,” said Martin Nolan from Julien’s Auctions.
