Kurt Cobain’s ‘Unplugged’ Sweater Up For Auction... Again

If you want Kurt Cobain's MTV Unplugged sweater (unwashed, complete with stains and a cigarette burn), you'll need at least $300,000. Probably more.

In November 2015, Cobain’s Manhattan brand sweater — “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” — sold for $137,500 through Julien’s Auctions, far exceeding the sweater’s pre-auction estimate of $60,000.

The sweater will return to the Julien’s block once again on October 25th with a pre-auction minimum bid set for $200,000; according to the Julien’s listing, that minimum bid has already been matched, with Cobain’s cardigan expected to reach bids of upwards of $300,000. (Rolling Stone)

The person who bought the sweater in 2015 said they're a fan, but also that it was an investment, so they're cashing in. May the worthiest bidder win!
