The Michael Jackson glove was originally only estimated to sell for around $30,000. The winning bidder, a Los Angeles resident named Wanda Kelley, apparently wasn’t fazed by the final price. “Let’s just say I wasn’t walking out of here without that glove,” Kelley told the Las Vegas Sun.

Other Michael Jackson memorabilia at the auction also went for hefty prices. The jacket he wore during an interview with Barbara Walters sold for $120,000 and a white Fedora was purchased for over $56,000. A pair of the pop star’s shoes was bought for a whopping $90,000.

We love Michael Jackson as much as the next fan, but we kind of have to cringe at the thought someone would pay more for his dirty shoes than our entire material possessions on this Earth are worth. Ouch.
