Kurt Cobain’s Cardigan, Lock of Hair Up for Auction

Nashville, TN, United States / 102.9 The Buzz

Well, that went from cool to creepy real fast.

It’s been 21 years since Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York performance has been released with that ever-so-famous green cardigan he wore on it. Now, it could be yours. That is, if you’ve got a spare $40-$60k lying around.

If you really wanted to, you could always complete the ensemble with a ten-inch lock of Cobain’s hair for an extra $10,000.

Check out the bidding pages:

Green Cardigan

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.


Lock of Hair

A lock of Kurt Cobain’s hair given to doll maker and comic artist Dame Darcy by Courtney Love. In a comic book style letter of authenticity, Darcy explains that in the 1990s she sold her handmade dolls in the back of her comic book Meat Cake. Love became a client and commissioned a doll for her daughter Frances using Cobain’s hair. This lock was the hair that remained once the doll was made. Accompanied by both a black and white and inked copy of the letter of authenticity.
