Iconic Vintage Michael Jackson Glove from 1983 Billie Jean Performance (Replica)
Michael Jackson's glove from his 1983 performance of Billie Jean at the Motown 25 television special where he performed the Moonwalk for the first time. The glove is completely different from the other gloves Jackson wore during this period. It is made using a cream leather, off-the-rack golf glove with an interior label reading “Made In Korea.”
The glove has a Velcro flap on the back of the hand, which allows the wearer to adjust the fit, and a single white snap at the back of the wrist. The glove uses instead a mesh web of faceted rhinestones, hand cut to the shape of the glove. These strips of rhinestones have been whip stitched to the back of the glove. There are no rhinestones on the palm of the glove. The most conspicuous discrepancy with the gloves Jackson had been wearing up to this point is that this is a left-handed glove.
MemesToLife was able to get exclusive access to this one of a kind glove through Darren Julien, an auctioneer of world renown items of music and Hollywood icons. The original is currently open for bidding between $40,000-60,000 at Julien's Auctions.
