Fan Sells Kurt Cobain’s Personal Checkbook


You thought somebody selling Kurt Cobain’s cardigan he wore at Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance and a lock of his hair was as low as you can get? Think again. Somebody sold Kurt Cobain’s personal checkbook on eBay last night for $1,650.00. The auction’s description stated: “Up for auction is one of Kurt Cobain’s personal checkbooks from when he was living in Olympia, WA at his 114 N. Pear St apartment. The checkbook contains blank 3 slips (1 checking deposit, 1 saving deposit, and 1 savings withdrawal). Also included in the auction is what I believe to be a storage fee receipt for either Kurt’s storage space or practice space. Feel free to message me with any questions.”


Kurt Cobain’s vintage cardigan he wore on MTV Unplugged in 1993 was recently auctioned off for $137,500 along with a lock of his hair. Frances Bean Cobain has a creepy doll made with locks of her father’s hair, with the leftover hair being sold. Below is the description of the Cobain hair auction:

A lock of Kurt Cobain’s hair given to doll maker and comic artist Dame Darcy by Courtney Love. In a comic book style letter of authenticity, Darcy explains that in the 1990s she sold her handmade dolls in the back of her comic book Meat Cake. Love became a client and commissioned a doll for her daughter Frances using Cobain’s hair. This lock was the hair that remained once the doll was made. Accompanied by both a black and white and inked copy of the letter of authenticity.
