With King of Pop Passed Michael Memorabilia Moves

Sales of Michael’s Memorabilia Exploded – Did you get your piece of Jacko?

In a week where Michael Jackson became the number one search term on Google, held the top five album spots on iTunes and captured the top honors on Amazon’s MP3 store; it’s no surprise that there has been a flood of Michael Jackson related items hitting eBay. Find out below where there is money to be made:

Both the Thriller LP and Michael Jackson Dolls have increased in value dramatically this past week. A copy of Thriller can go for nearly $70 on eBay, or so Vendio eBay Market Research says, compared to the $13 it was getting before the King of Pop passed.

Michael Jackson dolls. Yes, they unfortunately exist. Although its cliché, call it an “action figure,” and it will pickup and extra $10, bringing home an astounding $120. Who knows if anything from the 80s can truly be “vintage;” but if it’s added to the item title, there is an 88% chance it will sell on eBay.

Whether it’s a doll or “action figure” it’s still fetching over 370% more than it would have any time in the previous few months before Michael moved-on.

It also looks like there is a MJ glove fad on the horizon. 352 of them sold last week on eBay compared to the 5 per week reported by Vendio Research in weeks prior.

If prices of Michael memorabilia are just going up, up, up, what is a fan to do? Well, a real fan would step-up and buy a Michael Jackson gold record. They are currently undervalued by about 25% when compared to sales in weeks before he died.

For some reason if a gold record doesn’t satisfy a fan’s Michael appetite, they should think about buying Michael Jackson: Moonwalker, the movie not the video game. It’s not nearly as cool as a gold record, but it’s only $20 now vs. $28 in weeks prior.
