Michael Jackson Coffee Table Book -- A Steal

6/25/2010 8:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The first shipment of Katherine Jackson's coffee table book about Michael Jackson isn't exactly flying off the shelves in Gary, Indiana.  In fact the books never even made it to the shelves, because they were stolen.

A rep from the publisher, Vintage Pop, tells TMZ they FedEx'd seven boxes of "Never Can Say Goodbye" to the home of a Jackson family friend in Gary  ... and they were supposed to end up for sale at the new MJ monument.  But someone absolutely, positively wanted them so badly, they stole them right off the front steps of the house where they were left.

We're told a police report was filed with the Gary PD.

I just saw pix of Prince MJ on a tv show and it looks like he has vitiligo (sp?) on his upper right underarm.....Could it be a coincidence or could he actually be MJ's biological child?

How can the estate stop the sale of these books or demand a piece of the profits? Don't people write unauthorized biographies and such all the time on different people. I wonder if Oprah got money from the Kitty woman who just wrote a book about her.

Brilliant shipping them w/o signature required. Deserved to be stolen for that reason alone allowing them to be dumped and left on the steps. On the other hand, how much does a fedex driver make and how much would he make on the books for fudging a drop off and nobody home?

Oh! And on each piece of TP I'd have Jacko's grotesque FrankenJacko face on it so Jacko's Whackos could always feel he's close, oh so close, to them as they wipe their filthy stink holes.
