Kurt Cobain’s Cardigan From “MTV Unplugged” is Being Auctioned Off
Probably one of the most iconic performances of the '90s was Nirvana's set on "MTV Unplugged". Now's your chance to own a piece of grunge history, Kurt Cobain's cardigan is being auctioned off.
The starting bid for the green sweater is set at $20,000 and is expected to go as high as $60,000.
A vintage green cardigan sweater worn by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana’s appearance on MTV Unplugged in 1993. The Manhattan brand sweater is 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, size medium. The sweater was obtained from a close friend of the Cobain family. A signed letter of authenticity and provenance from the Cobain family friend will be provided to the winning bidder.
Back in the 1990s, Courtney Love had a doll made for Frances Bean with Kurt Cobain's actual hair. We know this because the doll-maker recently came across a leftover lock that she'd stashed away, and she's auctioning it off with a starting bid of $4,000. Julien's Live has that auction as well.
Unfortunately, there's no further information on the doll. While it seems like Courtney would've commissioned the doll after Kurt's death, we don't know that for sure.
