A huge contributor to the Nineties grunge movement, Kurt Cobain lives on through fans of his music and subcultural fashion references today.
If that’s not enough, the most memorable Nirvana moment – which occurred back in 1993 on stage at MTV’s Unplugged – can be kept alive by buying the cardigan the singer wore during the gig. Yes, it is going up for auction.
The grey mohair-esque knit is a bit scruffy and worn looking. But, despite its condition, the cardigan is expected to sell for $60,000 USD.
Other items include a lock of Cobain’s hair (offered at $4,000), Ringo Starr’s kickdrum from the Beatles Ed Sullivan Show performance, Elvis Presley’s 24-karat gold leaf grand piano, and (stranger still) Steven Tyler’s insurance card.
Check out the freakish celebrity memorabilia auction online. It kicks off November 7.
