Jackson family treasures up for auction

Personal possessions belonging to Michael Jackson and his family will go under the hammer later this month (Sep14).

The collection of household memorabilia varies from the priceless to the bizarre, with items including socks, underwear and general family possessions to photo albums, the black tuxedo worn by Jackson's pet chimpanzee Bubbles, and 56 master tapes of recordings made by The Jackson 5.


Peter Seigel, from auction house Gotta Have It! Collectibles, says, "Some of the items are ordinary items that could come out of any household - but when it has the provenance of being from the Jackson household, that's history."


The items will be sold online until 19 September (14). Bidding for the master tapes begin at $1,000.
