Michael Jackson’s “Moonwalk socks” up for auction

FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ (CNN) — You
could walk away with Michael Jackson’s socks from his first on-stage moonwalk. But
it will cost you a pretty penny.

The socks are going up for auction and the auction house, called
“Gotta Have Rock and Roll,” estimates the pair will go for upwards of $2
million. That’s $1 million per sock!

The self-proclaimed “King of Pop” wore the
custom-made, crystal-covered socks at the legendary “Motown 25: Yesterday,
Today, Forever” TV special in 1983.

The online auction kicks off Wednesday,
November 13th and bidding starts at $100,000. Jackson died in 2009
at age 50.
