If you’re fascinating in acquiring some Michael Jackson memorabilia then check this out. A black surgical mask that was allegedly worn by the late pop singer is up for auction, reports TMZ. So far, the bidding has exceeded $ 20,000 for this 1-of-a-sort item.

Auction home Nate D. Sanders Auctions claims on their web site that MJ wore the surgical mask 24 hours ahead of his death on June 25, 2009. Apparently, the singer would cover his nose and mouth with the mask in the course of rehearsals for his ‘This Is It’ tour at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The auction home describes the garment as a silky fabric that was personally intended for the King of Pop and it is made up of noticeable traces of his makeup. Ew! As a bonus, the surgical mask also comes with a strand of MJ’s black hair. Ewww!

There’s a letter of authenticity supplied by Jackson’s personal bodyguard, Eric Muhammad, as effectively as evidence of his employment with Jackson (a cashed verify of $ two,000). The auction ends on April 30 and Nate D. Sanders Auctions believes the mask will market for somewhere in the variety of $ 50,000 to $ 150,000 when it’s all stated and accomplished.

If you inquire us, this all sounds a little creepy and far-fetched, but very good luck to the bidder who owns this, uh, unique item from Michael Jackson’s wares.
