Super rich grunge enthusiasts, start your engines: Rolling Stone reported that Kurt Cobain’s iconic green cardigan from Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged session is going up for auction on November 7. It comes with a $20,000 opening bid, and is expected to go for somewhere between $40,000 and $60,000.
Auction house Julien’s Live described the sweater as “a blend of acrylic, mohair and Lycra with five-button closure (one button absent), with two exterior pockets, a burn hole and discoloration near left pocket and discoloration on right pocket.” Sounds legit. If that isn’t enough Cobain, you can also bid on a lock of the man’s hair. Starting bid: $4,000.
Also in this rock block of music memorabilia: the bass head used on Ringo Starr’s kit for the Beatles 1964 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, John Lennon’s acoustic Gibson J-160E and, perhaps most importantly, Steven Tyler’s insurance card.
