Over 700 artifacts and pieces of memorabilia of Rock ‘n’ Roll history will make their way to auction on October 25 and 26, 2019. A Culver City-based company, Julien’s Auctions, is hosting the event. Two of the items that stand out are those that belonged to the late Kurt Cobain. The olive green sweater he wore during the taping of Nirvana’s iconic 1993 MTV Unplugged recording has an estimated value of $200,000 to $300,000. The sweater is described as missing a button, stained, and having a cigarette hole burned through it. The second item is Cobain’s turquoise left-handed fender built-in 1993, which was previously on display at The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. During the guitar’s time on display a fan jumped a barricade and stole 2 knobs, later replaced by the museum. Cobain played the guitar on Nirvana’s In Utero tour, its value has been listed as $300,000 to $500,000. Flip through the auction catalog –it’s full cool rock memorabilia– or watch live through the Julien’s Auctions website.
