LAS VEGAS -- Bidders from around the world bought up
Michael Jackson memorabilia worth nearly $1 million
at an auction on the anniversary of his death,
including $190,000 for the Swarovski-crystal-studded
glove he wore on his 1984 Victory Tour.
The bidding that began Friday on more than 200 items was
"unlike anything we've ever experienced," said Darren
Julien of Julien's Auctions, which ran the auction at
Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

It was just phenomenal," Julien told the Las Vegas
One of the last autographs Jackson signed,
and dated June 24, 2009,in his handwriting,
went for $21,000.
"People flew in from Asia, Russia, all over.
Now that he's gone, we now realize the true legend we lost,"
said Julien, who has not had a similar auction in his 15 years
in the business. He predicted the sales would easily top $1
million by the time the auction wrapped up Sunday.
The glove had been expected to sell for between $20,000
and $30,000.The $190,000 sale price included the buyer's
premium of $30,000,a standard industry fee that goes to
the auction house, Julien said.
The winning bidder was Wanda Kelley of Los Angeles,
who also bought a number of Jackson's albums at the
auction, the Las Vegas Sun reported. She said she was
prepared to go higher if necessary.
"Let's just say I wasn't walking out of here without
that glove," she said.
