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.

Michael Jackson...his music and humanitarian deeds will long outlive the crude remarks made by some on this forum. Michael, you are in my heart forever...haters don't matter, they never did, and they never will.

The woman who is selling the wig is Lynda Parrish, MJ's former stylist. No doubt she will enjoy her 40 pieces of silver. You can register your disapproval at her website:
Point 1. Surely MJ OWNED this wig (I can't believe he rented it). In which case, is it really her property to dispose of in auction?
Point 2. Surely MJ had a confidentially agreement with this woman? So, why on earth is his estate letting her get away with this?

MJ has given more than 25 years to the organization/craft. he has earned his stripes to free himself. get rid of the celebrity. the hair, jackets, gloves, etc. he has moved on or crossed over.

great timing with "Heal The World" Phantom.

just as MJ said in the video at 5:19, "Stop existing and start living".

I sure wish I had the money to buy Michael Jackson's Thriller Jacket. And here's a prediction. The jacket will sell for over one million dollars.

Although anything Michael Jackson owned or wore would be nice to have but I don't really need any material things of Michael Jackson. His creative genius is all I need to last my lifetime. Love you sweetheart.

the lack of intelligence on the comments is not surprising. Michael jackson had a severe burn to his scalp in the 1980's that made it not possible for him to grow hair on the scar tissue on his scalp, the remainder was affected by his Lupus. A lot of people wear lace front wigs, its not a big deal and not a reason for ignorant racist comments. Don't be mistaken before the pepsi fire and before lupus He had amazing hair with great texture.
