ONE of Michael Jackson's iconic single gloves has sold for nearly $US200,000 ($A190,000) in Los Angeles, an auction house says.                                                                                                                        ONE of  Michael Jackson's iconic single gloves has sold for nearly $US200,000  ($A190,000) in Los Angeles, an auction house says.
At $US199,069, the  Swarovski-crystal-encrusted glove earned the record for the highest price  fetched for memorabilia from the late King of Pop, the Nate D Sanders auction  house said.
The autographs and memorabilia specialty seller said Jackson wore  this black glove, a departure for the singer who had previously sported white  ones, at the 1984 American Music Awards, when he was honoured for Thriller,  still the best-selling album of all time.
The megastar had originally given  the glove to a terminally ill boy during a visit arranged by a charity  organisation. It was accompanied by a book with three Jackson autographs and an  inscription that reads ``My original glove, love, MJ''.
                                        The auction house did  not specify who the buyer was.
In 2010, a beaded white glove worn by Jackson  sold for $US192,000 in a Las Vegas auction on the first anniversary of the  star's death.
Jackson died in 2009 at age 50 from an overdose of the powerful  anaesthetic propofol as he was preparing for a series of comeback  concerts.
Asked in 1999 by Barbara Walters why he wore only one glove, the  mega-star replied simply, ``cooler than two'', according to the auction  house.
Also sold at the auction this sweek were one of the Jackson's Beat It  jackets, worn on the 1984 Thriller tour, which went for $US84,422, and a drawing  by French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, which sold for $US65,959, the  auction house said.
