Julien's Auctions said the glove worn by Jackson sold for $330,000 (£209,000) at the "Icons & Idols" auction Saturday night. A jacket signed by Jackson brought in $96,000 (£61,000) and a fedora he wore on stage went for $72,000 (£46,000) at the Julien's Auctions event, Telegraph reports.

Over 100 items from Jackson's life and career including a custom-made costume for his friend and companion Bubbles, the chimp, went under the hammer.

Late Beatles legend John Lennon's gold-braided military jacket - made famous in an iconic 1966 Life magazine photo shoot - reached $240,000, exceeding its estimated word of $150,000 and $200,000.

An X-ray of Albert Einstein's brain went for $38,750, while a pair of screen legend Marilyn Monroe's empty prescription bottles, sold for $18,750, Economic Times says.
