Jackson’s glove on eBay

Michael Jackson's famous white glove is being auctioned on eBay - with the starting price set at $250,000 (€210,500).

The diamond-studded accessory, worn onstage by the Thriller star during the 1990s, was previously part of Liza Minnelli's estranged husband David Gest's private collection, and is now available to buy from a Paris-based seller.

The online description reads: "This is specifically a glove to be worn in concert as there are no stones on the palm side, so holding the microphone and manipulating the fedora hat is easier.

"On the back side of the glove are hundreds of rhinestones individually sewn on. This glove is a significant piece of pop history."

Potential buyers are warned the piece is not in perfect condition.

"The palm side is visually stained through use."
