Kurt Cobain Credit Card Goes on Auction Block
Music memorabilia is big business and the bigger the rocker, the more seemingly random things come into demand. One of those offbeat items comes from the late Kurt Cobain, as his personal Seafirst BankCard Visa and "King of Clubs, Slot Club" card holder are being auctioned as part of a larger memorabilia auction.
"Legendary: Memorabilia From Rock Gods and Pop Stars" is an online auction that's already under way and set to conclude on Feb. 26. One of the top items on the block is Nirvana frontman's aforementioned bank card. As can be seen, Cobain signed the item in blue ballpoint pen and added what appears to be a phone number. However, according to Rolling Stone, the phone number expired in February 1995, a year after Cobain's death. At press time, the item had a high bid of $5,500, but auctioneer Paddle8 expects the card and holder to go for somewhere between $7,000 and $9,000.
Other top items on the block include Frank Sinatra's driver's license from 1944, a U2 handwritten setlist from the War era and a variety of concert photographs, signed LPs and posters.
If you're a Led Zeppelin fan, you can bid on a signed Houses of the Holy LP, a concert poster and several concert photographs. There's also autographed LPs from Alice Cooper (Goes to Hell) and Pink Floyd (The Wall) as well as Jimi Hendrix photos and concert posters and a signed Jim Morrison check.
All of the items that are part of the "Legendary: Memorabilia From Rock Gods to Pop Stars" auction can be seen at this location.
