So when one of the sequined gloves  the King of Pop wore during his "Bad" Tour went up for bid at an auction of celebrity memorabilia in Beverly Hills, Calif., there was a frenzy surrounding the hot item.

The furious bidding took place at Julien's Auctions, where the lone glove worn by Jackson in the late 1980s sold for $330,000 at the "Icons & Idols" auction Saturday night.

More of Jackson's duds from his stage wardrobe went up for auction, including a jacket signed by the icon, which brought in $96,000 and a fedora he wore on stage, which  went for $72,000.

There were also some unusual items from Hollywood legends up for bid -- 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.

Competing with the price of Jackson's glove was a military-style jacket worn by John Lennon for a 1966 Life Magazine photo shoot, which sold for $240,000.

According to Julien's Auctions, the two-day event brought in more than $3 million.
