Auctioneers expected Michael Jackson's famous Victory Tour glove to be a top seller at their event.

But, they didn't imagine a fan would dole out nearly $200,000 for it. 

Such was the case, however, at Julien's Auctions Music Icons port sale in Las Vegas last week, when a fan purchased the late legend's Swarovski crystal-coated glove for $190,000, and garnered a standing ovation from attendees. 

Prior to the big bid, it was thought that Jackson's signature white glove would sell for $20,000-$30,000. 

But, the King of Pop's sparkly accessory wasn't the only item to bring big bucks on the auction block.

Other big ticket items included a Michael Jackson "Beat It" jacket that sold for $132,000 and stage loafers worn by the star that sold for $90,000.

In honor of the anniversary of the music icon's death, crowds showed up in record numbers to Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino Thursday and Friday, bidding on items from Jackson's 1984 tour as well as other MJ memorabilia.
