Memorabilia is the Ultimate Gift Idea
People are always looking for the Ultimate Gift for a friend or family member. What else would make a better gift than something signed by a Sport or Movie star or their favourite Musician or Band. Imagine seeing the look on their face when they unwrap their gift and are blown away by what they now have just received.
Signed Memorabilia is the ultimate gift. It means something, it’s special, it comes with a certificate of authenticity and most importantly it will increase in value. Most gifts whether for Birthday, Christmas or just because you love and respect the person don’t increase in value as time goes on but Signed Memorabilia does.
My Father is a huge Beach Boys fan and I recently bought him a framed picture signed by Mike Love and Brian Wilson, he was so happy when he opened it he immediately put it up on his wall in the living room and I get to see it every time I visit and remember the joy it gave him. I also know the remaining members of The Beach Boys days are sadly numbered and I will definitely be telling my father to get the items valued.
Your Love One or friend will be so surprised and happy with this amazing gift and will show it off in their home for many years to come. Alternatively there is also some cheaper and more affordable Memorabilia that can be found on eBay and Amazon. Although most of this type of Memorabilia is more novelty type items that won’t increase in value they still look good and make the perfect gift for any occasion. Things ranging from rare photos, books and even glassware. My favourite though is the picture frame that comes with photos and a plaque containing the history of your favourite band, actor or sport star.
Michael Jackson The King Of Pop
Michael Joseph Jackson was born on the 29th of August, 1958 and sadly passed away on June 25th, 2009. He was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Known as the “King of Pop”, he is regarded as one of the most famous and significant cultural figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest entertainers in the history of music. Jackson’s contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with his publicised personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.
The eighth child of the Jackson family, Michael made his professional debut in 1964 with his older brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon as a member of the Jackson 5. The Jackson 5 produced a string of hits including I Want You Back, Dancing Machine, Blame it on The Boogie and many more. He began his solo career in 1971 while at Motown Records, and rose to solo stardom with the critically acclaimed Off the Wall in 1979. By the early 1980s, Jackson became a dominant figure in popular music, out selling and ranking his peers and selling out stadiums all around the world. His music videos, including those for “Beat It”, “Billie Jean”, and “Thriller” from his 1982 hit album Thriller, changed music video industry and were regularly shown on MTV helping bring the television channel MTV to fame. Bad released in1987 was the first album to produce five Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles an amazing achievement for a solo artist. Jackson continued to innovate the music industry throughout the 1990s with videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream”, and forged a reputation as a touring artist. Through stage and video performances, Jackson popularized complicated dance techniques such as making famous the moonwalk, to which he gave the name. His sound and style have influenced artists of various genres since.
Jackson is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with estimated sales of over 350 million records worldwide. Thriller is the best-selling album of all time, with estimated sales of 66 million copies worldwide. His other albums, including Off the Wall, Bad, Dangerous and HIStory: Past, Present and Future, also rank among the world’s best-selling. He won hundreds of awards more than any other artist in the history of popular music, has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, and is the only pop or rock artist to have been inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame. His other achievements include a record 39 Guinness World Records including the Most Successful Entertainer of All Time, 15 Grammy Awards that include the Legend and Lifetime Achievement awards, 26 American Music Awards, and 13 Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era. Michael Jackson was the first artist to have a top ten single in the Billboard Hot 100 in five different decades. In 2016, Jackson’s estate earned $825 million, the highest yearly amount for a celebrity ever recorded by Forbes magazine.
In the late 1980s, Jackson became a figure of controversy for his changing appearance with a number of face lifts and surgeries, his relationships and bizarre behavior and lifestyle. In 1993, he was accused of sexually abusing the child of a family friend. The lawsuit was settled out of court, and Jackson was not indicted. In 2005, he was tried and acquitted of further child sexual abuse allegations and several other charges. In 2009, while preparing for a series of comeback concerts, named This Is It, Michael Jackson died from an overdose of sedatives administered by his personal physician, Conrad Murray. Jackson’s fans around the world expressed their grief, and his public memorial service was broadcast live to millions of viewers around the world. The 2019 documentary Leaving Neverland details child sexual abuse allegations from two former child friends of Jackson, which led to an international backlash against him and drew criticism from his fans and associates. Michael Jackson will always remain the King of Pop and I don’t think the world will ever see another performer like him.

Memorabilia Comes in all Shapes and Sizes
Memorabilia is all about the Nostalgia and theres so much different types of Memorabilia that you can find. When it comes to Michael Jackson Memorabilia theres no shortage of choice. On eBay alone you can find everything from vintage concert posters to Tour Jackets and T shirts and even limited edition professionally taken photos.
On Amazon you can find Custom Framed Gold Plated LPs, Wall Clocks and of course Promo Posters, Concert Memorabilia and much much more. All these items are great and will make the perfect gift. They look good displayed in the home or on the wall and will put a smile on anyones face, but they will very rarely increase in value and they don’t have that personal touch that Signed Memorabilia has.
Unfortunately Signed Memorabilia can be pricey and is more suited as an investment than a gift. In saying that though if you can get a group to chip in, signed memorabilia would make the ultimate gift that someone could cherish for many years to come. Keeping in mind though you need to do your research before hand and buy from a reputable dealer. For this I recommend HollywoodMemorabilia.com.
