Personal belongings of past artists seem to become more expensive after death. Michael Jackson’s one of these artists. His famous Motown Moonwalk socks are up for 1 Million dollars. The socks were a gift to Frank DiLeo, Jackson’s manager, for always keeping him on his toes.

The socks made their iconic debut when Jackson wore them for his Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever television special. Where he performed his classic “Billie Jean” and moonwalked all over the stage. The iconic staples socks will be available on November 13th through the 22nd.
Frank DiLeo has several other gifts from Jackson like the original gold and platinum plaques for his hits “Thriller,” “Off the Wall,” “Bad,” and “Dangerous.” How much do y’all think these originals would go for?
