The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has turned out to be an auctioneers' dream celebrity as prices for Jacko memorabilia outstrip even those for items that belonged to Elvis Presley or Marilyn Monroe.
Thousands of bidders from around the world were attracted to the Jackson auction at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York, where auctioneers were taken aback by the big prices paid for some of the late star's belongings.
