Kurt Cobain’s sweater from In Utero goes for $75,000 in auction
A sweater worn by Kurt Cobain during the last photoshoot before his death went for $75,000 at auction. As Rolling Stone points out, the cardigan was worn by the songwriter in a photoshoot for Nirvana’s last album, 1993’s In Utero, which was released just months before Cobain’s death in April 1994.
The sweater later made an appearance at Cobain’s funeral, where Courtney Love gave it to “an acquaintance,” according to Julien’s Auctions. It remains unclear whether this acquaintance was connected to Saturday’s auction, or whether the sweater has changed owners since the aftermath of Cobain’s death.
