List of World's Most Expensive Gloves

Michael Jackson Gloves
In an auction slated in Hard Rock Cafe in New York, thousands of bidder engaged on an exciting fan war for the late Michael Jackson's 70 collectible items including the glove worn by Jackson when he first staged the famous moonwalk dance at the 1983 Motown 25 television special. Businessman Hoffman Ma from HongKong in behalf of a Holiday Resort in Macau won the bid over Michael Jackson's famous sequined glove for $350,000.

Baseball Gloves
Legendary Lou Gehrig, known affectionately by fans as “The Iron Horse,” was one of the most popular professional baseball players of all time. Gehrig’s collectibles are extremely rare and desired by New York Yankees collectors. That baseball glove, the last one he wore on April 30th 1939  was sold to Penny Marshall for over $387,000. However, a recent controversial report written by baseball uniform and equipment expert and authenticator, Dave Grob, published on the MEARS website entitled "I’m Betting on the Gehrigs" showing evidence that the glove alleged to be Lou Gehrig’s last from the Sotheby’s 1999 Barry Halper auction was not genuine. His analysis and research reveals that the authentic glove Gehrig used in his last game resides at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.

Boxing Gloves
You can never use this on any fighting match if you're dead serious about this gloves. This $20,000 boxing gloves may probably be useless on top of a boxing ring but I bet everyone would agree this is the most stylish gear a boxer could ever get. These diamond-encrusted gloves are all about sparkling white and black diamonds. All iced out in front and back, the diamond-encrusted gloves are approximately 3 inches high by 2.5 inches wide, with diamond clarity of 35 cttw of black diamonds and 10 cttw of white. Moreover, about 70-80 grams of 10k gold is also used.

Obviously, they're not the ideal gloves to wear in a match, but for someone looking to get their hands on this luxurious hand gear, keep in mind that diamonds are not the softest things in the world to be hit with.
