1984 Michael Jackson "Victory" Tour Stage-Worn Swarovski Crystal-Studded Bill Whitten Glove - Iconic Pop Memorabilia on Auction"
In the world of music memorabilia, few pieces are as iconic as Michael Jackson's crystal-studded gloves. Currently, one such glove worn by the King of Pop during the 1984 "Victory" tour is on auction.
Synonymous with the singer's style during the early 1980s, this glove is not just an accessory but an embodiment of the era's glam and glitz. Decorated with sparkling Swarovski crystals, the glove commands attention as it embodies the flamboyance of Jackson's performances.
It carries a Bill Whitten tag inside - a testament to its authenticity. Whitten, Jackson’s longtime costume designer, was renowned for creating gloves for Jackson, adding a layer of credibility and exclusivity to this collectible item.
The record for a Michael Jackson-worn glove is an impressive $430,000. In 2022, Goldin Auctions sold another one of Michael Jackson's gloves from the "Victory" Tour for $147,600. That glove was also crafted by Bill Whitten, mirroring the rarity and significance of the one currently available.
The glove's provenance is robust and reliable. It comes with a letter from Belinda Miller, whose mother, Charlotte, worked with Bill Whitten from 1976 to 1988. She received this glove as a gift from Whitten in 1988, marking it as a direct link to the legendary performer's wardrobe. Moreover, a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) from MEARS accompanies the glove, providing further assurance of its authenticity.
With two days remaining, the auction stands at $11,020. Don't miss the chance to own a piece of pop history - a tangible connection to the magnetic stage presence and enduring legacy of Michael Jackson.
