Michael Jackson -- Black Surgical Mask Fetching Over $20,000 at Auction | TMZ.com
4/26/2012 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



A black surgical mask that Michael Jackson allegedly wore the night before he died in 2009 has hit the auction block -- and the bids have already surpassed $20,000.

According to the auction house -- Nate D. Sanders Auctions -- MJ wore the mask (above) while rehearsing for his "This Is It" concert tour on June 24th, 2009 ... the singer's last ever rehearsal.

The auction house claims the mask  -- made of silk fabric, personally designed by the King of Pop -- contains visible traces of MJ's stage make-up along with a strand of his black hair.

One of MJ's former bodyguards was in possession of the mask, and swears by its authenticity. MJ famously wore surgical masks outdoors as a form of disguise.



The auction ends April 30th -- and bidding has already reached $21,190. The auction house estimates the mask will sell for $50,000-$150,000.

He FAMOUSLY wore them as DISGUISES.  Isn't that a bit of a contradiction.  The mask still has strands of hair on it?  Downright ghoulish I would say!

Barack Obama administration must return Michael Jackson memorabillia to Africa | TheBlaze.com


just saw this and thought i would put it here since i couldn't begin to come up with a short title for a new thread.  :icon_rolleyes:
"I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves."  




Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

This is the same surgical mask from the body guard we first heard about way back in '09 right? I wonder why it has taken this long for it to go to auction or are they recycling stories. Also the one strand of MJ hair reminds me of the other MJ hair for sale story... anyone else remember the hair supposedly retrieved from the shower drain? Which spins me off in a thought tangent to LaToya saying she took samples of hair from the body at Forest Lawn for toxicology testing.  My thinking's all over the place. Guess I should get some sleep as it is 4.30 in the morning on this side of the world.

The hair off the straight, or curly wig?  :thjajaja121:

This is about as ludicrous as an elephant standing in the middle of the room, and everyone ignoring it.

@suspicious mind.....how could Obama's admin take the stuff when the guys wasn't convicted of anything..... I don't understand the world sometimes  :Pulling_hair:

@ RK...... I remember this article:

Michael Jackson's hair, fished from shower drain, bought by Gambling website for $11k | Mail Online

and this auction about his hair:

MICHAEL JACKSON WIG - Price Estimate: $4000 - $6000


All these auctions of personal stuff like this is just odd.....why would someone pay that kind of money for that.  Art, music sheets, even hand written notes...maybe.  However, I always think what better use of that money could be to someone in need.....there are children staving all over, people living on the streets, animals even that need homes...better to put money towards things like that.
It's odd to think though, an authentic Michael Jackson mask is the Holy Grail of personal affects for a collector of such things.  It's a piece of cloth for heaven's sake.  Why treat it like gold?  I can get the fedora more....or even a glove maybe....but a mask?   Maybe because it's supposedly from June 24th, 2009?  Don't know....

Blessings

I can't believe they are serious about this.
First of all, nobody said until now that MJ was wearing a mask a day before June 25th.
Secondly, "personally designed by the KOP"  :WTF:, he's a tailor now?
Thirdly, I get the impression Mike had no make-up at the rehearsals.

And now please tell me who t f is this person:

There is a theory that Lee Harvey Oswald did not die and that the made for TV movie was merely for the public benefit.  Perhaps that's the explanation for the 'casket' being available for sale. 

Here's what they say about it.

Quote
Original pine coffin that held the body of Lee Harvey Oswald from his burial on 25 November 1963 until his exhumation on 4 October 1981. Amidst conspiracy theories that a look-alike Russian agent was actually buried in place of Oswald, a fierce legal battle erupted between Robert and Marina Oswald with the former trying to stop the exhumation and the latter pushing it forward. Marina's side prevailed, forcing an exhumation to determine who was actually buried in Oswald's grave. As Lee Harvey Oswald's coffin was lifted, evidence of extensive water damage to the casket was apparent -- the cover was weak in many areas and in one place had caved in partially exposing the remains. The coffin's wood exterior was very soft from moisture damage, and had dark areas of discoloration. Visible along the sides were the tarnished original metallic ornamentation. The interior of the casket also showed splotchy dark discoloration and moisture-softening of the wood. A portion of the original fabric that lined the top of the casket had fallen upon the decomposed remains. After a thorough medical examination, the pathologists assigned to the case officially identified the body as Oswald's as dental records positively matched. At a press conference later that day the following famous statement was made, "The remains in the grave marked as Lee Harvey Oswald are indeed Lee Harvey Oswald." After the news conference, Oswald's remains were transported back to Rose Hill Cemetery for re-interment in a new casket and vault. The original deteriorated coffin offered here, measures 80" long x 24" deep, with the thickness of the sides of the casket approximately one inch. Sitting on wood crate which measures 84" x 24". Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity by Funeral Director Allen Baumgardner, who assisted at the original embalming of Lee Harvey Oswald and later purchased the Miller Funeral Home along with all of its property.

This item sold in 2010 for $87,468
