Twenty-one pieces of Michael Jackson memorabilia have sold for a total of $205,000 at an auction held in Las Vegas just a day after his death.

A crystal beaded shirt worn by the performer during his 1984 “Victory” tour was the top-selling item in the collection, at $52,500. Prices include a 25 percent auction commission.

The celebrity auction Friday at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino was planned for months and featured Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe items.

Other items sold include a drawing of Mickey Mouse done by Jackson as a child and handwritten lyrics for his 1987 hit “Bad.”

Auctioneer Darren Julien says the Jackson items are from a collection owned by David Gest, the producer and promoter once married to Liza Minnelli. Jackson introduced the couple and was best man at their wedding.
