Three years ago, I was on my way to work when the news hit me.
That can’t be true. My family and I have tickets to see the upcoming tour in London.
Of course, being a natural cynic, I dismissed the news as just another rumour and carried on with my day as usual.
It wasn’t until I got to my desk and flipped the switch on the radio that the news was confirmed.
“The King of Pop has died in his sleep, on the eve of his highly-anticipated world tour,” blared the news reporter.
The whole world was in shock, mourning the death of one of our brightest stars.
Three years later and the news of Michael Jackson’s death still resounds through the media and in the hearts of his millions of loyal fans worldwide.
Despite the insights into his life that have surfaced since, Michael Jackson had not been as popular for 20 years as he is today. Time has healed the old wounds surrounding his personal problems and has opened his music to a whole new generation of potential fans.
And this is a trend that seems to show no signs of stopping. Values for his memorabilia have shot up by a staggering 60% pa between 2010 and 2011, according to the PFC40 Autograph Index.
Quality items from the singer are selling fast and aren’t likely to reappear on the market for years once they are absorbed into a private collection. It could be decades before the iconic “Thriller” jacket that sold for $1.8m in 2011 is seen again, as the new owner gets every last bit of enjoyment out of it.
But Paul Fraser Collectibles is here to help. We currently have this Michael Jackson owned and worn sequined jacket on offer, which perfectly captures the singer’s iconic style.
Now, every discerning Michael Jackson fan knows about the infamous Pepsi commercial incident. It was a moment that changed Jackson’s life, and we are pleased to offer collectors the chance to own a few authentic hairs from the notorious night at a fantastic price.
P.S I know investing in collectibles can be a complex business. That’s why we have put together this brilliant Michael Jackson investment report to make sure you get the most from your money.
