This is Michael Jackson's white fedora that he wore in his "Smooth Criminal" video, it is believed to be the last fedora hat that he signed before he tragically passed away. Michael has signed and inscribed the hat on the brim in black felt tip pen, "Michael Jackson," with a star, and an arrow with two initials. The hat has a black grosgrain ribbon and the inner leather headband is stamped in gold "Michael Jackson." With USA manufacturers tag "size Large." Michael gave the fedora to his bodyguard Matthew Fiddes at the Palm Springs Hotel, Las Vegas in 2008, when he was recording an album. Fiddes worked for Michael over a period of 12 years and they were introduced by their mutual friend Uri Gellar. Michael told Fiddes that he used the hat on the set of his "Smooth Criminal" video and Fiddes believes this to be the last hat signed by Michael before his tragic death in 2009. An article from the Daily Mail regarding the hat can be found here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2164874/The-hat-Michael-Jackson-famous-goes-hammer-expected-fetch-10-000.html. Also showing here are two photos of Fiddes and Jackson together. Very good condition. The hat comes with a letter of provenance from Matthew Fiddes as well as a letter of provenance and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.
