The unwashed underpants were part of the evidence confiscated in 2003 by then-Santa Barbara DA Tom Sneddon, who wanted a DNA sample for his unsuccessful child-molestation case against the washed-up King of Pop. They are part of a stash of Jacko artifacts offered by New Jersey businessman Henry Vacarro, who obtained them in a bankruptcy case.
The authenticity of them being the original briefs is ensured by the fact that they come with an evidence bag and wrapped with police tape. The undies are being auctioned with a reserve price of one million dollars, reports the New York Post. Also being sold are the Gloved One's handwritten note explaining why he wants an annulment from Lisa Marie Presley, and a used half-ounce tube of skin-bleaching cream.
