BEVERLY HILLS (AP) — Items from the Michael Jackson’s stage wardrobe, including one of the King of Pop’s famous gloves, attracted furious bidding at an auction of celebrity memorabilia in Beverly Hills.

Julien’s Auctions says a lone glove worn by Jackson during the “Bad” tour in the late 1980s sold for $330,000 at the “Icons & Idols” auction Saturday night. A jacket signed by Jackson brought in $96,000 and a fedora he wore on stage went for $72,000 at the Julien’s Auctions event.

Other highlights from the auction were an x-ray of Albert Einstein’s brain, which brought $38,750, and a pair of Marilyn Monroe’s empty prescription bottles sold for $18,750.

A military-style jacket worn by John Lennon for a 1966 Life Magazine photo shoot sold for $240,000.

Julien’s Auctions says the two-day event brought in more than $3 million.
