That's handy... Michael Jackson's iconic Swarovski glove could grab $85,000

The exciting California auction will also include highlights from Britney Spears and Ringo Starr

We previously gave you a small taster of the upcoming Premiere Props auction, in the form of the original Batgirl (Yvonne Craig's) screen-worn costume.

However, this is now looking like the thin end of the wedge, as the company will be auctioning iconic Hollywood memorabilia once owned by Michael Jackson, Ringo Starr, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Jimmy Hendrix and other stars on Saturday, July 30, and Sunday, July 31.

The 1,000-lot auction will begin at 11 a.m. at the company's headquarters in Californiawith LiveAuctioneers helping out with internet sales. There will be a preview from 9-11 a.m.

Some of the highlights include:

Michael Jackson's signature Swarovski crystal glove from his "Thriller" era; a stage-worn Swarovski crystal helmet from his Triumph tour (1981) and a black fedora from his stage performance of Billie Jean.

This iconic crystal glove was given by Michael as a gift to acclaimed painter Paul Bedard in 1984 after he created the world famous painting commissioned by MJ.

The artwork pictures five historic figures wearing his signature glove and sunglasses, which include; Albert Einstein, Mona Lisa, Abraham Lincoln, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, George Washington and Michael himself. It is expected to bring $80,000 - $85,000

A glove worn by Michael Jackson on stage was sold for $212,000 in late 2009 (although that had its own unique history).

Then there is Ringo Starr's 1968 Ford Mustang, originally owned and customized by the Beatles drummer with original signed pink slip.

Attracting a slightly different audience will be Britney Spears's customised coat from Live from Las Vegas. She performed Lucky in the faux fur coat with the American flag pattern on the interior.
