Two soccer jerseys owned by Michael Jackson, gifted to him by the New Westminster, British Columbia police department during a ceremony where he was appointed an honorary member of the police department.
Jackson was in the area performing with his four brothers for their “Victory” tour, performing three concerts in November 1984. The tour was a financial success but sadly was the last tour the four brothers would ever take part in, as relations between Jackson and his brothers deteriorated by the end of the tour. The two jerseys remained in Jackson’s collection until they were auctioned off in October 2007 by Guernsey’s, along with other items from Jackson’s estate. First item is a long-sleeved royal blue Alpha brand soccer jersey, with a logo containing the shield of the New Westminster police department set within a white soccer ball with “New Westminster Police / Summer Soccer School”. Size medium. Second jersey is a light blue and white short-sleeved Umbro brand jersey with a smaller version of the New Westminster police department summer soccer league logo. Size small. Short-sleeved jersey has a slight stain to the Umbro logo on the upper right chest. Overall near fine.
