Kurt Cobain sweater sold for more than $330,000
A Kurt Cobain sweater has sold for more than $330,000.
The stained, cigarette-burned green cardigan hadn’t been cleaned since Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged show, which was filmed months before Cobain committed suicide on April 5, 1994 at the age of 27. It’s also missing a button.
The sweater was snapped up at Julien’s Auctions in New York, where much of Cobain’s memorabilia was sold over the weekend, including one of his custom guitars for $340,000, reports Fox.
Cobain’s sweater is now the most expensive sweater ever sold at auction.
