Let the crazy cash games begin.  A glove Michael Jackson tossed into the crowd more than 10 years ago sold for $57,000 Australian dollars today at an auction.  So who was the winner?  The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.  Have you been there?  Is there any piece of music memorabilia they don’t own?

According the Australian auction house Bonhams and Goodman, the Hard Rock beat out 5 other bidders to get the glove that went for nearly double the expected selling price.  Jackson tossed the glove at a screening of the movie Ghosts while he was in Sydney on the HIStory World Tour.

In related Michael Jackson News, the Meanwhile Ranch in Snowmass where Jackson has vacationed is still on the auction block for a cool $27,500,000.  The 12,000 foot ranch has a 3-barn stall and a 10,000 foot riding arena.  Come on there has to be some skier out there who wants to shell out a little coin to sleep in Michaels bed and ski in Michaels tracks?
