How much is the red zipper Jacket that Michael Jackson wore in The Beat it Music video?

I want to know how much is the original red zipper Jacket that Michael Jackson wore in the Beat it music video.

MJ gave the jacket to a 14 year old named David Smithy

David was dying of cystic fibrosis and Michael gave him two gifts – the red Beat It jacket MJ wore in the video and the black sequinned glove he had worn to the American Music Awards earlier that year.

David’s name also appears in the thank you list on BAD.
