MORE DOSH FOR NATALIE

In 1984 a party was held in the the Natural History Museum in New York City to celebrate the record breaking sales of Michael Jackson's new album "Thriller."
The invitation granted to a select group of people was a white cotton glove, bearing the words:
"Walter Yetnikoff, Don Dempsey, Allen Davis invite you to a MICHAEL JACKSON THRILLER PARTY.  2/7/84 9PM.  AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY, CPW at 79th ST.  BLACK TIE.  RSVP Susan Blond

I got this glove from someone who was attending the party.  He was a staff member of CBS Records who was close to Michael at the time and accompanied the artist to the event.
It is in good condition, a little faded from time but the invitational words are still clearly visible.  It has a very small tear on the the index finger, probably because I wore it to the event!

Now I've given it to my daughter Natalie to sell - more dosh for her trip to the land of sari's and sandals.  Rickshaw rides aplenty I shouldn't wonder.  I hope she brings me back a T-shirt that says: "My daughter went to India funded by my valuable collectables and all I got was this crap T-shirt."

I've had Three Chords Good since it was released, but only saw "This is 40" this week. I had no idea that GP, the Rumour, and the album were part of the story line. Really enjoyed both. (Come back to Portland ME soon as you can, GP.) Thanks.
