Sold the famous black jacket worn by late King Michael Jackson for $ 298,000, more than three times the price offered at the auction in New York, officials said.
The show, along with Jackson's jacket, included legends of the world of music such as Prince, Madonna and John Lennon. The July auction house set a price of $ 100,000 to sell Jackson's jacket to the worldwide famous "Bad" album, which ran from 1987 to 1989. Jayon's handwriting is an indelible signature.
The jacket is one of the most notable costumes worn by the waistcoat singer, along with his red and black leather jacket worn in his Thriller video and in 2011 for a sale of $ 1.8 million.
Jackson's belongings have become one of the most celebrated celebrities since he was suddenly killed in Los Angeles in 2009 at the age of 50, because he inherited it to help him sleep.
The text businesswoman and charity activist Melton Verrith showed Bijou with about 100 others for his handbag feature label.
Recently, the Acons and Idols Rock and Roll two-day auctions also include Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton Electric Guitar Instruments and a member of the U2 group, called The Edge and Puno.
In his final concert in 2016, he played guitarist Prince, who sold for 156,250 dollars, and the 1984 "Barbell Rinn" jacket was sold for $ 3,750.
A part of the auction proceeds will be donated to Music Kirs, a charity group at the prestigious Academy Awards, awarding the Grammy Awards. The company provides musicians with health and other services.
