Michael Jackson's white glove he used while premiering his moonwalk dance in 1983 has been sold yesterday for $420,000 (including tax). The lucky new owner is Hoffman Ma from Hong Kong.
The item was the most valuable from a collection of memrobillia at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. Its pre-auction estimate was $40,000 to $60,000.
"It was a fairly good discount," said Ma, a 36-year-old Jackson fan who bought the pop-music treasure on behalf of the Ponte 16 Resort Hotel in Macau.
