Michael Jackson Fans -- Total Re-Gifters

10/30/2009 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson was known to be very generous with his fans -- but now some of the people who received gifts from the King of Pop want to turn a profit off his generosity.



A scarf worn by Jackson, a Mercedes he gave to his aunt, and the white glove he wore when he unveiled the Moonwalk in 1983 will all go up for bidding at a NY-based Julien's Auctions event on November 21.

Roughly 80 items on the block are related to Michael, but only 34 of them were originally gifts from Michael to friends and fans.

Other items up for bidding include original handwritten lyrics to "Beat It," and the mold for Michael's "Thriller" fangs.

Yes, too much greed. He will make money for those who never loved even 50 years from now on. What a shame...And he knew it.

I have an autographed copy of the first release of the Thriller album that I wouldn't give up for anything. There simply isn't enough money in the world, nor any enticement, that could rip that treasure from my hands. Or my heart.

For some it's all about opportunity. For others, it's about the man and his legacy. I guess you know which category I fall into.

Anything, anything, anything for money...
What kind of 'fans' or 'friends' would sell something of Michael's? Even if he were alive I'd consider it crazy. I bet if fans or friends of Elvis even had a used piece of toilet tissue of his, they wouldn't sell it now that he's gone. Hello?!! Not to mention the fact that if you are simply planning to cash in on him like the rest of the vultures, I'm sure it will be more valuable with time. This makes me so mad! Just wish I had been able to meet him. I wouldn't trade anything he gave me for all the money in the world. Then again maybe it's a good thing they are selling his gifts to them. They probably know they don't deserve to own anything of Michael's and there's more genuine people out there who do.

Of course you wouldn't sell something of Elvis'. Elvis was great and didn't entertain little boys.

Sooooo many people still making money out of Michael. If Michael Jackson had ever given me a gift, I'd keep it and treasure it until the day I die and then bequeath it in my will to Michael's children. I think it's shameful that these people would sell a gift. Shame on them all.
