MJ's 'Thriller' Jacket -- Got $400k Layin' Around?!

6/6/2011 8:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's iconic red jacket from the "Thriller" video is hitting the auction block in Beverly Hills in a few weeks -- and it could be yours ... if you've got a spare $400,000 to blow.

The jacket -- which MJ personally autographed to his former costume designers -- is expected to fetch between $200k and $400k ... though we wouldn't be shocked if it soared past half a mil.

The jacket is one of several MJ items featured in the Julien's Auction event on June 25 and 26. Among the more interesting pieces -- the wig Michael wore at his "This Is It" news conference in London and a glove he wore at the American Music Awards.

The wig is expected to haul in between $4,000 and $6,000 -- and the glove is valued between $20k and $30k.

Don't know why this makes me sad, but it really does. Maybe it's because these were Michaels things, and should be treasured by his children - not the highest bidder.
Especially the wig - I agree with the previous poster. Exhibiting it in public seems like yet another attempt to rob MJ of his dignity.
Sad that he's still being exploited. Guess it's all about money.

Anyone that would buy ANY of this crap, should have their little boy-loving balls cut off and shoved down their throats. Sorry.

I knew that he had issues with his hair ever since the Pepsi commercial accident (which also, by the way, started his drug dependancy, that would ultimately, very sadly, kill him), but to actually own a wig of his, seems a bit morbid. Having the jacket or the glove though, would be pretty sweet. Although, shouldn't the jacket be in a museum, like the Smithsonian? I mean, they have Archie Bunker's chair, one of Fonzie's jackets, but not Michael Jackson's Thriller jacket?

I can not believe that a GIFT that Michael Jackson gave his designers is now being auctioned. I guess the gesture of friendship and appreciation on his part vs the $$$$. Friendship loses. Rather than auction it and you didn't want it why not offer it to the his children? Shocked but not surprised.

That wig isn't very old. I wonder who's trying to sell it? Pretty sad and very tacky.

I wish the estate would buy this stuff and have public displays - that would be really interesting and everything could stay in the family.

Right back at Ya! I don't come to these boards much anymore because I know it is just a matter of time before the hate and cloning begins. But it sure is nice to see you here!

Miss the good old days when you could post a comment without worrying about someone cloning you or just posting garbage. Oh Well, it is what it is.

it would be nice if one or more of the people using mj to hype their own music career would get together,buy this stuff and save it for his children ...that would be a nice gesture, instead of just talking about him to promote themselves

It appears that everything Michael Jackson owned is being auctioned off. Unfortunately for his kids they will inherit nothing of his personal stuff.

Just A Bunch of Overpriced Junk From The Gay Pedophile.

Unwell, just admit that you are broke and cannot buy the Thriller jacket you wished you could have.
