Michael Jackson's iconic ''Beat It'' jacket, worn by Jackson during the 1988 Madison Square Gardens tour, and signed by the superstar. The globally-renowned and beloved entertainer signs the jacket just below the collar in the back, ''To Ari / Love / Michael Jackson / 1988'' in black felt tip. Red leather jacket with fine chain mail detailing to the shoulders is universally recognizable as the design worn by Jackson in the music video for ''Beat It.'' The chart-topping single was responsible for launching the entire ''Thriller'' record on a trajectory toward its ultimate position as the best-selling album of all time. Designed by J. Parks, Jackson wore the ''Beat It'' jacket while performing in 1988. Michael gave this jacket to Epic Records President Ron Alexenburg's son; Alexenburg signed the Jackson 5 to Epic Records, where Michael's career took off. Size 40 jacket has Alexenburg's name handwritten on the label; overall near fine condition. With provenance from Julien's Auctions.
