PFLUGERVILLE, Texas, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Signed Michael Jackson posters and Bruce Lee photos owned by former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. are drawing bids for hundreds of dollars in an online auction.

The items belonging to the convicted and imprisoned former Democratic congressman went up for sale Tuesday in a U.S. Marshals Service online auction run by Gaston & Sheehan Auctioneers Inc. of Phlugerville, Texas. The auction runs through Sept. 26.

Five posters signed by Michael Jackson, the late pop star, and related items had drawn bids as high as $1,560 by Tuesday afternoon. Three photos of Lee, the popular martial arts actor, had received numerous bids topping out at $520.

Also drawing bids in the hundreds of dollars were some women's clothing, including a black mink jacket, a red cashmere cape with mink trim, a brown cashmere cape with brown mink trim and a black mink hooded parka.

Jesse Jackson Jr., 48, had represented Illinois' 2nd Congressional District from 1995 to 2012 when he resigned for health reasons.

He subsequently pleaded guilty to wire and mail fraud following a federal investigation into misuse of campaign funds. He received a 30-month prison term in August.
