In October, one lucky Michael Jackson will win a bid for one of only two electric white gloves worn by the pop star on the Jacksons' 1984 Victory Tour during a sale by the Profiles in History auction house. And he or she will likely pay up to six figures to have it.

Over the years, he wore many gloves when he performed, of course, but the glove being sold by Profiles in History is one of only two made for Jackson's "Suit of Lights" on stage.

Shell not only designed the glove, but he went on the Victory Tour to protect and maintain the glove. After the tour ended, Jackson gave him one glove and kept the other, according to Maddalena.

The glove is emblazoned with bugle beads, Austrian crystal rhinestones and fitted with 50 small lights powered by a small battery placed in the cuff of the glove.
