The single item of Kurt’s clothing is expected to fetch upwards of £25,000
The cardigan that Kurt Cobain wore during the band’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ performance is to go up for auction in America on November 7, alongside a host of other big name music memorabilia, including a lock of the late Nirvana frontman’s hair.
The cardigan (pictured above during the legendary performance) has a guide price of $40,000 to $60,000 (£26,000 and £39,000), and will be sold as part of the ‘Icons and Idols’ auction. Bids can be made in advance of the auction on the Julien’s Live website.
The Beatles drumhead from the Ed Sullivan show is the highest-priced item at the auction at present, with a starting price of $400,000 (£250,000) listed at the time of writing, and the drumhead expected to reach close to $1,000,000 (£625,000). A John Lennon Gibson Guitar, an Elvis Presley gold leaf grand piano and items belonging to Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and Slash will also go under the hammer.
