Kurt Cobain’s Sweater Is Being Auctioned Off Again, and It’s Never Been Washed
By Richie on October 10, 2019
For the second time in four years, the green cardigan that KURT COBAIN wore for NIRVANA’s “MTV Unplugged” episode is going up for auction.
It’s expected to sell for around $300,000, with a starting bid of $50K. The current owner, an anonymous businessman, kept it stored in acid-free tissue in a safe. This person bought it at auction in 2015 for $137,500.
If you have a ton of money to blow on something like this, you might be wondering what physical condition it’s in.
Well, I don’t know if this will gross you out or excite you, but it’s NEVER BEEN WASHED!
The auction house says, quote, “It’s very important that we don’t wash it. The stains are still there. There’s even cigarettes burns that you can see on the sweater.”
He didn’t elaborate on the stains, which is probably for the best.
