Los Angeles, April 29 A surgical mask worn by Michael Jackson at his last rehearsal is being auctioned and expected to fetch up to $150,000.
The silk fabric mask was reportedly worn by the late singer during his last ever run through of his “This Is It” concert before he died of acute Propofol intoxication June, 2009.
The mask has already received bids of $20,000, and is expected to fetch up to $150,000 when bidding ends April 30, reports femalefirst.co.uk
The singer often wore surgical masks outdoors as a form of disguise and protection against breathing in smog.
Nate D. Sanders Auctions claims that the mask was personally designed by Michael and the item has visible traces of his make-up, and notes, a single dark strand of Jackson’s hair accompanies the mask.
The mask comes from one of Michael’s former bodyguards, who swears by its authenticity.
