As the world prepares for the Oct. 27 international premiere of This Is It, the posthumous Michael Jackson documentary, the late King of Pop will feature prominently in Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 6-7 20th Century Icons Auction online (www.HA.com/Entertainment) and in-person in Dallas.
“We have some fabulous and evocative Michael Jackson material coming up,” said Doug Norwine, Director of Music & Entertainment sales at Heritage Auctions. “From Thriller-era autographs and costumes, to gold and platinum records to hand written lyrics to off-the-cuff drawings of his siblings. This is a superb chance for Jackson’s legions of fans worldwide to acquire items directly associated with the singer.” The Michael Jackson-related items in the Heritage auction carry estimates ranging from $250 to $4,000+.
“We’ve placed estimates on most of these pieces that really level the playing field among MJ collectors,” said Norwine, “though the market is still trying to figure out what Michael Jackson memorabilia will bring. You can look at prices realized when he was alive, but the comparison ends there. The emotional impact of his passing cannot be calculated, nor its ultimate impact on what collectors will be willing to pay for a piece of their idol.”
