A cardigan that belonged to Kurt Cobain has been sold at auction for $75,000 [£58,000], according to NME.

The cardigan was worn by the late Nirvana frontman at his last official photoshoot with the band in the summer of 1993.

Julien’s Auctions said the item of clothing more than doubled its pre-auction estimate of between $10,000 and $20,000 when it was sold on May 18th.
The pre-‘In Utero’ photoshoot was captured by Jesse Frohman and later featured in the photobook Kurt Cobain: The Last Session.

Courtney Love, Cobain’s widow, later gave the cardigan to “an acquaintance” at his funeral. It’s unclear if that person was the seller or if the item had changed hands since then.

It’s not the first time a piece of Cobain’s clothing has sold for a healthy sum. In 2015, Cobain’s green cardigan from Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance sold at auction for $137,000 (approximately £107,000).
