If you’re of my generation, or even if you’re not, you’ve definitely seen this jacket before. When I was a kid I had one just like it, which I wore with a single white glove and probably Underoos. Even today, this red and black wonder is one of the most iconic articles of clothing I can think of, something like the 80′s equivalent to Marilyn Monroe’s white dress. And now you can have it for your very own.
That’s right, the one and only Thriller jacket is up for auction. Actually, it’s one of two that he wore in the video, but who’s counting?Anyhow, it’s expected to fetch between $200,000 and $400,000, but my guess is that some fanatic music fan out there is willing to pay even more. And they can do so in good conscience, since a percentage of the proceeds are going to the Shambhala Preserve where two of the late Mr. Jackson’s Bengal tigers are currently living. The auction will take place June 25th and 26th in Beverly Hills.
