Propstore will be launching an auction where fans and collectors will be able to bid on various music-related items, which include Amy Winehouse's famous beehive from the 'You Know I'm No Good' music video and Michael Jackson's leather jacket from his 1984 Pepsi commercial.

MJ starred in the commercial alongside his brothers (the Jackson 5) and reworked his hit single 'Billie Jean' to create a new jingle for the brand, referencing Pepsi's 'New Generation' of customers.
