Michael Jackson Auctions Personal Collection


Luckily for Michael Jackson, there’s never been a better economic climate in which to unload a gently used portrait of the artist surrounded by various cultural and historical figures each donning the Thriller maestro’s trademark shades and Swarovski-encrusted white glove.

The painting, which is expected to fetch somewhere in the vicinity of $600, is one of 2,000 items from the financially strapped singer’s personal collection set to be auctioned off this spring.

In anticipation of the four-day fire sale, beginning April 22, Julien’s Auctions has revealed the catalog of the eclectic bounty for would-be gawkers buyers.

Among the choicer oddities up for grabs: The razor-handed gloves Johnny Depp sported in Edward Scissorhands ($4,000-$6,000); a golf cart complete with Peter Pan-emblazoned cushions and, the pièce de résistance, an image of Jacko-as-Pan on the hood, ($4,000-$6,000); a basketball signed by Michael Jordan ($800-$1,200); an original canvas painting by pal Macaulay Culkin (a steal at $200-$300); and potentially oddest of all—a particularly tall order given its company—a vintage sepia photograph of Roddy McDowall inscribed, “To Estelle, In appreciation for all the lovely things you have done for me.”
