The signature fedora Jackson wore during his Bad Tour was sold for $16,250, a handwritten note to friend Elizabeth Taylor went for $5,625 and a signed pillowcase fetched $3,584. And a bidder paid out $330,000, more than 10 times what Julien's had expected to get for one of the famous, shiny, crystal-covered gloves that Jackson wore during the 1980s.
