42607.jpegA lone glove worn by Michael Jackson during his 'Bad' tour in the late 1980s has sold for more than £200,000 at auction. Items from the King of Pop's stage wardrobe attracted furious bidding at the celebrity memorabilia auction in Beverly Hills.

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.
