That's right you can have your very
own piece of history. Just be the largest
bidder for this Pop Culture Icon of
Michael Jackson's Thriller Jacket.


The iconic red jacket worn by Michael Jackson in his 1983 Thriller video is set to fetch at least £120,000 at auction. Sale bosses described the autographed red and black coat as “the most recognized and significant piece of pop culture”. The late pop legend ¬signed it as a gift to his designers, Dennis ¬Tompkins and Michael Bush.

Fans will have the chance to buy it at the Music Icons auction in Beverly Hills this month.

Some of the proceeds will go to America’s Shambala Preserve where Jackson’s Bengal tigers, Thriller and Sabu, now live.


So how many ATS'ers are gonna bid on this jacket ???

I saw on the news this morning, that Debbie Reynolds has had to auction off her collection of movie memorabilia, which includes Charlie Chaplins hat and Marilyn Monroe's white dress, apparantly shes up to her eyes in debt. How do people this wealthy, get into such financial messes?

Yep i bet it will go to a private collector, most likely in the Asian market, they are very much into pop and such.
but it will be interesting to see what it goes for.
if i remember rightly his last auction didnt go so well, but he was still alive then

oh that's an easy one.
they invest in the legal casino called
Wall Street Stock Market. And con
men like Soros come along and give
them tips on what's hot to make money.
they invest and lose their shirt.
And Soros shorts the stock and
laughs all the way to the bank
errrr I mean off shore account.

I guess living the lifestyles of Rich and Famous even though they're not Famous


I guess most stars are still stuck in their past glory and limelight but certainly there isn't any income to sustain the lifestyle. Very few percantage wise individuals have made something good from their income and actually managed to either maintain or increase their wealth. The rest is nothing more than fabulous history
