Remember when Michael Jackson starred as the scarecrow in "The Wiz?" A key part of his costume is among the items going up for sale at auction.

Julien's Auctions will be taking bids on the socks that Jackson used as sleeves for his outfit in the movie, a black version of "The Wizard of Oz."

The film also featured Diana Ross as Dorothy, and other stars including the late Richard Pryor, Lena Horne and Nipsey Russell.

The auction begins December 1 and includes items from the Beatles and Madonna.
