Firm put up Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ tour jacket for auction

Late pop star, Michael Jackson (r).

An auction firm, Julien’s Auction is puting up Michael Jackson’s black “Bad” jacket for auction.

The jacket was what the late singer wore on his first solo tour in the late 80s.

Julien’s Auction said on Friday that the auction is scheduled for November and could fetch up to $100,000.

The jacket, which Jackson signed on the back with a silver permanent marker, was worn throughout the singer’s “Bad” world concert tour from 1987-89.

The jacket, with multiple zippers, straps and buckles, is one of the late singer’s most iconic costume pieces alongside his red and black leather “Thriller” music video jacket that sold for $1.8 million at auction in 2011.

Jackson has become one of the most collectible celebrities since his sudden death in 2009 in Los Angeles at age 50 from an accidental overdose of an anesthetic he was using as a sleep aid.

The “Bad” jacket is being sold by Texas businessman and philanthropist Milton Verret along with almost 100 other items from his large rock ‘n roll memorabilia collection.

Verret also owns the “Thriller” jacket, which he takes around children’s hospitals, but is not putting that item up for auction.

The Nov. 10 auction at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, New York, will also feature electric guitars played by Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, and U2 band members The Edge and Bono. The various guitars are expected to fetch between $20,000 – $50,000 apiece.
