Sometimes, it surprises me to see how much things end up selling for at auction. John Lennon's merkin? $100,000. Freddie Mercury's mustache comb? $95 million dollars. Ok, those aren't real things that have been auctioned off (at least I don't think so), but there always seems to be something from Kurt Cobain's wardrobe that ends up selling for a lot. Particularly sweaters.
Via Rolling Stone:
The cardigan, which Cobain donned at a pre-In Uterophoto session in the summer of 1993, more than doubled its pre-auction estimate of between $10,000 and $20,000, Julien’s Auctions said.
Pictures of Cobain wearing the sweater, captured by photographer Jesse Frohman, featured in the photobookKurt Cobain: The Last Session.
Courtney Love later gave the sweater to “an acquaintance” at Cobain’s funeral. It is unclear if that acquaintance was the sweater’s seller or if it changed hands since then.
