|Michael Jackson Memorabilia Fetches $1Million in Macau
|MACAU (AP) -- An auction of some 100 items of Michael Jackson memorabilia has fetched more than $1 million, with a basketball autographed by the late singer and Michael Jordan netting $245,000.
Showing the lingering appeal of the ``King of Pop,'' the sale Saturday in the southern Chinese city of Macau drew bidders from around the world.
An unidentified Internet bidder paid $180,000 for a black crystal-studded glove and an arm brace Jackson wore while filming a promotional video for his 1995 album ``HIStory.'' An Internet bidder also bought the basketball.
Of the 435 total items up for sale, other non-Jackson items sold included a costume worn by Bruce Lee during the filming of ``Game of Death'' and a costume Madonna donned during her Girlie Show world tour.
