The original marriage certificate isssued to Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley following their Spring 1994 wedding in the Dominican Republic is set to go under the hammer.
The couple was issued the document, which boasts both stars’ signatures, following a 15-minute ceremony on May 26, 1994. The certificate will go up for auction at an estate sale by Philip Weiss Auctions in New York January 10.
Auctioneer Philip Weiss believes the keepsake will be a high-demand item due to an increased interest in the Thriller singer since his death last June.
“Anything relating to Michael Jackson is of extreme interest right now because of his untimely death and the release of the movie,” Weiss explains. “…When you have an item that combines his name and legend with the Presley name and legend, their marriage certificate no less, with both of their signatures on it, you’ve got something that’s almost impossible to predict what it will bring at auction.”
