"We have some fabulous Michael Jackson material," said Doug Norwine, Director of Music & Entertainment sales at Heritage Auctions. "From -eraautographs and costumes, to gold and platinum records to handwritten lyrics to off-the-cuff drawings of his siblings. This is a superb chance to acquire items directly associated with the singer."

The Michael Jackson-related items carry estimates ranging from $250 to $4,000+.

"We've placed estimates on most of these pieces that really level the playing field among MJ collectors," said Norwine, "though the market is still trying to figure out what Jackson memorabilia will bring. You can look at prices realized when he was alive, but the comparison ends there. The emotional impact of his passing cannot be calculated, nor its impact on what collectors will be willing to pay for a piece of their idol."
