Michael Jackson fans now have the opportunity to purchase rare and iconic wardrobe pieces the pop legend wore on stage, during recording sessions, and in well-documented public appearances. These items will all be featured in the upcoming Gotta Have It Auction to be held online from February 22nd to Mar. 3rd, 2010. Included in the auction will be numerous custom made outfits and garments that captured Mr. Jackson’s constantly evolving look and style over the course of his legendary career, from the 1984 Jacksons Victory Tour to the recently published Michael Jackson retrospective memorial book “Opus”. There are also several other Michael Jackson items currently available for sale directly through our website at this time.
