A white crystal-covered right-handed glove, stage-used by Michael Jackson in 1984 during his Victory Tour. The glove is custom-made for Michael Jackson by Bill Whitten and is covered with over 800 Swarovski rhinestones crystals.
Michael Jackson had many trademarks; the iconic moonwalk and the fedora hat to name a few. However, he was without doubt most famous for his sparkling glove. Jackson found his way to the glove in the late 1970’s and was forever associated with it. During his career, the iconic glove was made in some variations, with the one being offered here as the one he used the most. The gloves were handmade by his two costume designers Bill Whitten and the duo Tompkins & Bush.
Jackson always had more than one glove with him, it’s therefore not certain exactly how many times he used this glove, but the Victory Tour contained 55 concerts, and he did use the iconic glove during the Billie Jean performances and some other songs.
This is a truly unique opportunity to own the most iconic and recognizable pop culture artifact of all time!
