Jacko's life goes on sale


This has to be the yard sale of the century, as the Washington Post calls it.

The King of Pop is putting his stuff up for auction, creating a sense of wonder, curiosity and a bit of creepiness among parents and children everywhere.

For an estimated auction price of $20,000 to $30,000, the front gates to Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in Santa Maria, Calif., could be yours. Or maybe you prefer one of Jackson's famous white gloves, estimated to go at $10,000 during the four-day auction April 22-25. Or maybe bid on the original art painted by Macaulay Culkin in 1991.

The nearly 2,000 items make up a collection for the ages, most of which will be on view to the public until April 21. The public exhibition is at 9900 Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills, adjacent to the Beverly Hilton, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, if you're in the area. Entry costs $20.

(editor's note: According to this piece in the Los Angeles Times, the auction has been canceled for now. Stay tuned to WalletPop for further developments.)
